On November 22, the main events marking the 75th anniversary of the Famine were held in Kiev. This date was naturally one that we couldn’t get past in Ukraine. Preparations for the commemoration had been seriously underway since early 2007. In April 2008, the Cabinet of Ministers allocated 7.4 million hryvnia for the events, which were planned to be held across the entire country. Aside from “official” commemorations in the capital, an information campaign was designed to increase lessons in schools on the memory of the Famine and compile lists of victims. Ukrainian officials participated in an international “eternal...

We met Kim Jin Kyu, Professor of Russian at Korea University in Seoul, when he was in Moscow in early November at the Second Russkiy Mir Assembly. This wasn’t his first time in Russia. Nearly every year he travels here for international language forums. Kim Jin Kyu’s knowledge of Russian is fluent to the extent that his vocabulary is great enough to inspire feelings of envy in a few Russians. – As far as I understand, South Koreans began studying Russian rather late in comparison to people in other countries? – It wasn’t until after the Second World War, or, more precisely, after the Korean War. The first...

Switzerland (officially, the Swiss Confederation), located in the very center of Europe, gets its name from the Swiss canton, which comes from the early German word “Schwyz.” Switzerland’s more than 700-year history dates back to 1291 when an eternal union was formed between three forest cantons – Uri, Schwyz and Unterwalden. Today, Switzerland is a republic formed by 26 cantons and has a population of approximately 7.5 million people. Since antiquity, Switzerland has accepted travelers from Russia and has occasionally become a place of refuge for political exiles. In 1687, letters were exchanged between the...

On the vast territory of what was once the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union, vastly different peoples and cultures coexisted. The list is quite long, including Slavic, Turkic, Finno-Ugric and Tungusic peoples. Every nation had its own history and culture before joining the empire, and the imperial period offered each nation something unique, which is clearly evident in the research. The Russian Empire contained agrarian cultures, urban cultures and even nomadic cultures (the Kazakhs were one of the largest nomadic peoples whose traditions were preserved until the 1930s). There were people whose livelihood depended on fishing. There were a...

Yesterday's 90th anniversary celebration of the end of the First World War took place in Europe against the backdrop of noisy scandal. German Chancellor Angela Merkel refused to attend the celebrations in France, which were held this year outside of Verdun. It was precisely here in 1916 that perhaps the bloodiest battle of the entire war took place. The battle became a symbol of French resistance. Celebrations of the peace agreement on November 11, 1918 have typically taken place in Compi...

In 2004 during Vladimir Putin’s visit to France and the city of Cannes he met with one of the oldest Russian immigrants from the first wave, the last subject of Imperial Russia 82-year-old Andrei Shmeman, and the President of Russia presented him with a new Russian passport.  “For many years I lived with the dissonance in my soul of feeling myself to be absolutely Russian while at the same time remaining without citizenship, a stateless person.  And now I am happy that I have finally found a motherland,” Andrei Shmeman said then. For his entire life Andrei Shmeman lived with a so-called Nansen’s passport...
