On the anniversaries of classic Russian authors, we tend to talk about their day and age. What is the relevance of Pushkin and Dostoevsky? Are Tolstoy or Turgenev modern? Chekhov's turn has now arrived, as it is the 150th anniversary of his birth that we celebrate. The issue has become a virtual ritual. Following tradition, let us then ask – how is Chekhov relevant? The answers to this question are, of course, very different. “Anton Chekhov wrote, above all, about man, about human dignity, about how to get rid of the slave inside us little by little,” said Deputy Minister of Culture Andrei Gagarin in an interview with...

On December 21-22, the first Russian-Korean academic and research conference of literary translators took place in Moscow to mark the 100th anniversary of the first Korean translation of a Russian work of literature. It would seem that the history of Russian-Korean literary connections could only be of interest to literature scholars and professional translators, although we are learning that people from other countries value Russian literature and that it influences the ways in which Russians are viewed. The latter is especially interesting given the rather significant delay with which our characters have entered the Korean literary space....

The debut Russian anime “First Squad” is like two films in one in the sense that different audiences will see in it completely different things. There is the hope that someday the two will merge into a unified whole, although in order for that to take place the project needs to be profitable.

“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...
