RUSSIA
The relationship between our countries is going through difficult times: traditional values are being abolished all over the world, monuments are being demolished, books are being burned, and the most barbaric methods are being used to combat Russian culture and history. Our main task is to stop the flow of xenophobia and ignorance fueled by politicians in Western countries.

We know that ordinary people and those who are deeply immersed in the topic of art are alien to such an irrational approach. That is why only you can become a bridge between our countries, pave again the way in the place where the gap arose.
The goal of the project is to enable our friends and allies to look at things with clear view, to make sure that they are not alone, to appreciate the works of other creative enthusiasts and to understand that “Russia in the soul” are not empty words.

“These are not seas that divide peoples, nor the difference of languages, but hostile relations,” wrote the English writer John Ruskin.

So let us not allow the love for each other in our hearts to be eclipsed by enmity. Share your support with Russian people! Together we are more stronger than separately!
