May 9 is the great Nation' triumph


Dear friends,

I cordially congratulate you on the most important holiday, the victory in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945!

This holiday comes with tears in our eyes. At the same time we celebrate our great people's victory over the

worst enemy in human's history - German Fascism. For salvation of all the people living on this earth today

our grandmothers and great-grandfathers died.The festivities pay tribute to their deed, to all of those who worked towards the Victory, to all not spearing themselves for the defense of peace.

On May 9 millions of Russian World people will join the Immortal Regiment columns with pride and joy for the Great Victory. While we are alive, while our children and grandchildren are alive the Victory Day memory will be sacred.

We bow to our veterans, to whom we owe not just ths holiday, but our lives!

Great Victory Day, friends!

Vyacheslav Nikonov, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Russkiy Mir Foundation

Meet BRICS Art is an international project that brings together artists from Russia, Brazil, China, India, and South Africa. Their virtual exhibition was opened in January. In addition, the project participants will hold online discussions. For example, they will discuss how artists can participate in the design of the cities of the future for the BRICS countries. Anna Kurumchina, director of the Agency for Cultural and Science Diplomacy (Yekaterinburg) and the organizer of the exhibition, shared the details of the international project.
Since the beginning of the unrest in Kazakhstan, some media and Telegram channels have speculated about the threat to Russians living in the Republic. Allegedly, the introduction of CSTO forces would put them in danger due to the rise of Kazakh nationalism. Izvestia talked to Russians living in the country to find out how the January events had affected their relations with Kazakhs. Interviewees claimed that the introduction of CSTO peacekeepers had no effect on interethnic dialogue because the Russians living in the Republic were not associated with Russia - they were locals. However, according to Izvestia's interlocutors, there is still intolerance at the mundane level.
