Konstantin Bessonov, an entrepreneur from Novosibirsk, is the founder of Termofor, one of the leading producers of wood-burning stoves in Russia. Termofor products are sold not only in Russia but across the CIS and in the European Union. The company’s product line is constantly expanding and new developments are being made by a serious team of designers and engineers. In a sense, Termofor is one example of a successful business that began from the ground up and is not associated with the sale of raw materials but rather with the development of a new quality product that enjoys demand outside the domestic market. Considering the special...

The murder of Moscow priest Daniel Sysoev will continue to be discussed for quite some time. It is really one of the most notorious crimes in recent years, even without taking into account the rather impressive and unfortunate list of prominent assassinations. The reason is not only the provocative nature of the murder taking place in a church but the obvious religious motivation as well. Despite the fact that priests and monks have been killed on more than one occasion over the past two decades, for the most part these killings were purely criminal in nature. Only a few of them could be classified as “hate crimes” committed by...

From the Editor – Reflection on the figure of General Vlasov, which has been the subject of a recent discussion on the Russkiy Mir Foundation website, gives rise to a multitude of serious questions. Are we certain of the standards that we have grown used to in approaching our own history? Where does “our own” end and “foreign” begin? What is and is not treason? Where are the boundaries of one’s own identity? These are just some of the questions that inevitably arise when referring to a controversial moment in our history. It is no secret that the last question, which includes in itself all the previous...

From the Editor – Dmitry Butrin’s article is very much in opposition to Boris Kagarlitsky’s “The War that Changed the East,” which is also devoted to the ninety-fifth anniversary of the beginning of the First World War. In fact, both are trying to answer the question of what the events taking place ninety-five years ago mean for Russia. We cannot say that this is a polemic or that these articles, on the contrary, complement each other. Rather, they both indicate how little we still understand as to the meaning of the First World War for Russia and the Russian world today and how difficult it is to develop an...

Relations between Russia and America have always been an interesting and ambiguous affair. There have been times when the two countries have seen each other as friends and allies, and there have also been periods where the relationship has been much colder. There is the hope, though, that old prejudices are finally giving way to new beliefs and that our relations will start to be formed on the basis of partnership and serious intercultural dialogue. For a long time it’s been common for Russian students to travel to study in foreign countries – in England, France and, of course, the United States. To a lesser degree, the reverse...
