A series of events dedicated to Russian-British relations was held in London.
The representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo in London hosted a presentation of Natalia Kulishenko's book ‘An English Queen and Stalingrad. The Story of Elisabeth Angela Marguerite Bowes-Lyon’. The representative of Rossotrudnichestvo in the UK Anton Chesnokov greeted the guests of the event with a speech, in which he noted that the book was released in the run up to the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory in World War II, which is celebrated this year around the world, as well as the anniversary of the twinning movement, which connected both British and Russian cities, as well as many other settlements around the world. Kulishenko’s book is dedicated to the rich history of the UK and Russia, their allied relations during the war period, the outstanding English Queen Elizabeth (1900-2002) and her role in the Stalingrad events.
In Coventry - the British twin city of Volgograd / Stalingrad - an official meeting of the leaders of local government with Russian diplomats took place. British delegation was led by Lord Mayor of Coventry Linda Bigham, who was an active participant in the Dialogue on the Volga: Peace and Understanding in the 21st Century International Forum on Public Diplomacy, chaired by the Head of Rossotrudnichestvo Eleonora Mitrofanova in 2019. Russian delegation consisted of an employee of Rossotrudnichestvo’s Head Office Natalia Kulishenko and the representative of Rossotrudnichestvo in the UK Anton Chesnokov.
