Russia's Foreign Minister took part in the solemn ceremony and congratulated diplomats on their professional holiday in Moscow on Friday.

SOT, Sergei Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister (Russian): "It was a tough year and, as you know, according to tradition, which unfortunately we cannot avoid, we now commemorate those, our comrades who passed away, and especially I would like to remember Andrei Karlov and Alexander Kadakin who tragically died while on duty."

SOT, Sergei Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister (Russian): "The challenges are massive, the situation is difficult, the geopolitical map has become increasingly complex. Crises and conflicts remain complex, while maintaining the integrated nature. Competition is no less acute. Not for the first year we have to fight anti-Russian policy of containment based on the desire to punish Russia for independent foreign policy. And of course all of this demands maximum effort and readiness to defend the interests of the country and not sparing our life."
