“You should bear firmly in mind that of all the arts, cinema is the most important to us.” Many of our compatriots – emigrants of the first wave whose contribution to the Dream Factory is difficult to overestimate – could bravely endorse this famous Leninist expression. According to the film historian Sergei Kudryavtsev, “the earliest meticulous study of various Western directories found no less startling information. It’s time to begin counting the few figures in film who have nothing to do with Russia at all.” Nobody has yet succeeded in calculating the exact number of people from Russia who have...

For Russians, Albania is one of the most mysterious countries in Europe. The country is often associated with the war in Kosovo, the Albanian mafia, and a strange language. None of this reflects the real Albania, however. In Russia, few people have a true idea of what this country is all about. The Republic of Albania, located on the western Balkan Peninsula, is among the poorest countries in Europe. The Albanians are one of the oldest nations in Europe with a continuous history stretching back more than two millennia. They have lived on the same land and spoken the same language throughout their entire history. Long before the establishment...

Russians relate to this date with a bit of bewilderment until we realize that May 9 signified the end of the Great Patriotic War. After a pause, there was still the Battle of Manchuria (the Soviet Union never entered Japan, by the way, although an operation in Hokkaido was planned). The generals of the Kwantung army surrendered to the Soviet troops for three weeks, and only on September 2 did Mamoru Shigemitsu, Japan’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Yoshijiro Umezu,...

In recent days, there has been a considerable amount of discourse on the issue of who won and how many people were killed as a result of the war in South Ossetia. The discussion smacks of cynicism. A huge tragedy has occurred – for the Ossetians, Georgians and Russians. Thousands have been killed. It seems that the impossible has happened – war between two fraternal nations. What exactly happened? The problem of South Ossetia I personally encountered the situation in South Ossetia back in 1990 while I was working in President Mikhail Gorbachev’s administration. The Ossetians are a divided people, with most of them living in...

“Neither vocation, nor confession, nor the blood of forefathers makes a person belong to a people… He who thinks in a language belongs to its people...” Vladimir Dal From the editor: In the town of Lugansk, a small museum is devoted to the life and work of Vladimir Dal. In a sense, this museum is a reminder that the Russian world also consists of these half-forgotten corners and that its historical and cultural map is also made up of such inconspicuous details. Finding them and taking inventory, so to speak, is a job in itself. At the end of the 18th century in a small village on the shores of the small Luhan creek in the...
