According to the head of Foreign Ministry Department for work with compatriots abroad Oleg Malginov, it is devoted to 100th anniversary of the Great October revolution. Its topic is 100th anniversary of Russian Revolution: Unity for the Sake of Future. The main topic will be consolidation of Russian community in other countries.

The diplomat has explained that all branches of the community will gather at this large forum in Moscow, including grandchildren of migrants who left the Motherland after the Revolution, young people actively participating in expat communities’ organizations.

“We need to analyze what happened at that time and how Russians feel like living abroad now. Is it possible to consolidate the community considering the current strategy of Russia without losing the sense of solidarity’, Malginov explained.

According to him, the focus will be made on unity for the sake of future and not on the historical part. At the same time, Russian Foreign Ministry is sure that without historical analysis it is impossible to understand the degree of harmful impact of the internal counteraction which could result in the real conflict.
