The second centenary of Fyodor Dostoevsky’s birth will be widely celebrated not only in Russia but also in Germany. The German-Russian Institute of Culture in Dresden has launched the Year of Dostoevsky in Germany project. Dr. Wolfgang Schälike, chairman of the board of the institute, spoke about the events planned and how interest in the writer facilitated bridge-building between our countries.
Dostoevsky is online, Tolstoy shared a life hack from country life, and Chekhov posted something funny... Many Russian classic authors have pages in social media, including English-language ones, and they have millions of subscribers. People from all over the world want their news feed to feature posts about new translations of Dostoevsky or a memorable date associated with Leo Tolstoy’s life, not just sales ads and pictures with cute kittens.
Argentina has received, possibly, the most important gift before Catholic Christmas – Sputnik V vaccine from Russia. 300,000 doses have arrived by the airplane that spent almost 24 hours in flight.

Translation of the Holy Scriptures into Chinese is carried out by the parish of the Russian Orthodox Church in Taiwan. Over the eight-year period, a translation of the Gospel of Mark has been completed, and the Gospel of Matthew is in the process. The translators have made a basic glossary of biblical and theological terminology, and it is fair to say that they are working on the development of the Chinese Orthodox liturgical language. The project supervisor, rector of the Holy Cross Church in Taipei Kirill Shkarbul told the Russkiy Mir about his hopes that this translation would be able to convey the Word of God unaltered and would not be a mere retelling as other Chinese translations of the Bible.
