Russian-British Networking in London

The representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo hosted a meeting of the CIS Professionals Network, Westminster Russia Forum, and RusFor (Russian Speaking Legal Professionals Forum).

Three organizations uniting representatives of the Russian-speaking community of the UK and Russophiles, held the first joint meeting to coordinate efforts aimed at improvement of Russian-British bilateral relations. Each organization focuses on different aspects of public life, including politics, business, law, and culture.

The special guest of the evening was Evelina De Lain, a pianist who set a world record for the highest altitude grand piano performance. Evelina shared her story of the concert in the Himalayan mountains and performed compositions that sounded at the altitude of 4946 meters.

The meeting included fundraising for the British charitable organization The Promise. The charity’s mission is to improve the lives of children with special needs in Russia and neighbouring countries by promoting a system of support for disabled children in partnership with families and carers and by encouraging a more positive attitude towards disability.
