The Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov has called the Fort Ross Dialogue Forum a unique platform. The event took place the day before, the Russian Foreign Ministry writes on its Facebook page.

This year's forum became 10th in a row. It was held online because of the unfavorable epidemiological situation.

According to Antonov, 2021 has brought some improvements in relations between Moscow and Washington. This is evidenced by the extension of the START Treaty, a very eventful meeting of the Russian and American presidents in Geneva. In addition, the parties resumed dialogue on strategic stability and security in the cyber environment. This will prevent tensions from escalating into a real crisis. 

Antonov is sure that these are only the first steps towards getting the relations between the two countries back to normal.  And Dialogue Fort Ross is able to make a great contribution to this process.

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.
