The Summer and Winter Universiades are held every two years under the auspices of the International University Sports Federation (IUSF). Yekaterinburg will host the Summer Universiade in 2023. The Russian city was chosen at a meeting of the IUSF Executive Committee, which took place in Italy.

150 years ago, on October 22, 1870, Ivan Bunin was born. He was a Russian poet and prose writer, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, honorary member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, emigrant and one of the most sophisticated and unbiased witnesses of his turbulent time.

Who made the whole world believe the banal stereotypes? Why do all historians claim the opposite and who benefits from the myth of Russian drinking?
