Sergey Vinogradov In December 1769, the decree on the establishment of the Order of St. George as the highest military decoration of the Russian Empire was signed by Empress Catherine the Great. It was pointed out that the order should not be awarded for the “noble race”, but for “special acts of courage,” that is, for personal valor. In modern times, the Order of St. George, abrogated in 1917, was revived; the statute of the order was signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin in 2000. 20 years ago no one really could suspect that a few years later the St. George Ribbon would become the most important patriotic symbol...

Sergey Vinogradov There is a place in Finland, where they tell about the history of Russia in 15 languages every day, without a lunchbreak. Sveaborg (or Suomenlinna in Finnish) is a fortress which is now part of Helsinki city limits. It was founded by Sweden in the 18th century, then conquered and reconstructed by Russia, which owned the fortress for more than a hundred years, and passed it to Finland in 1917 following the country’s independence. Sveaborg is considered to be the most visited attraction in Finland (more than a million guests come to the fortress annually) and the only UNESCO site in Helsinki. But...
