Russian Ambassador to Yemen Vladimir Dedushkin said that Russia is a «direct player» in the Yemeni peace process as he gave a press statement from Russia's Permanent Mission in Geneva on Friday. «For 3.5 years there has been such a volume of mistrust that even to convene negotiations was very difficult. We are now doing everything possible in our power. Russia is directly involved in all these... Еще contacts and participates not just as an outside observer, but as a direct player, I would say, external, sponsoring the peace process in Yemen,» said Dedushkin. «Not only Russia but the whole world expects that the war in Yemen will finally end, bloody, heavy and I would say a strange war that the international community does not want to pay attention to, compared to the war and the events in Syria,» he stated. «We just work with all parties in the conflict and help them reconcile, they appreciate it very much and know perfectly well that our country has no suspicious interests,» concluded Dedushkin.
