The distressing thing, brothers and sisters, is that the Iraqi President adopted such an extraordinary position in the spoken and written messages which we exchanged after the invasion.
Беда в том, братья и сестры, что президент Ирака занял столь странную позицию в своих устных заявлениях и посланиях, которыми мы обменивались после вторжения.

Twice a day, of course, she visited Prince Sergay, who was in prison, in the division for noblemen, but these interviews, as I was fully convinced later, were very distressing to Liza.
Разумеется, каждый день, раза по два, посещала и князя, который был заключен в тюрьме, в дворянском отделении, по свидания эти, как я вполне убедился впоследствии, бывали очень для Лизы тягостны.

"That brings up a distressing possibility," she said later, as they climbed to take up places behind a bulwark of striped travertine. "What if Vader doesn't come with the attacking force?"

For the nonce, however, she had her most distressing encounter to contend with, and no amount of coffee or wine or any other tea she could think of would make the true terror she had felt any less real.
Однако сегодня же ей пришлось пережить самую ужасную встречу в своей жизни, и никакое на свете количество ни кофе, ни вина не сможет смягчить тот ужас, который она испытала.

His manner to Stepan Trofimovitch was as affectionately attentive as ever, but there was a shade of reserve in it. He unmistakably avoided distressing, lofty subjects or reminiscences of the past.
К Степану Трофимовичу относился с прежним нежным вниманием, но уже как-то сдержаннее: о высоких предметах и о воспоминаниях прошлого видимо удалялся с ним заговаривать.
