It is planned to open a series of cultural events — "Russian Seasons" — in South Korea this autumn. Russian Minister of Culture Olga Lyubimova spoke about this at a meeting with her South Korean counterpart. The parties expressed interest in deepening cultural cooperation and discussed joint projects, the Pobeda RF website reports.

Olga Lyubimova recalled that the Russian Seasons project and the Year of Cultural Exchanges were conceived as part of the celebration of the 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Moscow and Seoul. Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism of the Republic of Korea Hwang Hee admitted that it is not easy to hold large-scale events during the coronavirus pandemic. The minister hopes that South Koreans will be able to fully experience Russian culture.

The Russian minister noted that the pandemic did not cause massive cancellations of joint cultural events between the two countries. Olga Lyubimova said that Russia and South Korea regularly hold many exchanges between theaters, museums and creative teams.
