Eyewitnesses have said and written a lot about the events of the Great Patriotic War, about the ordeals suffered by the people.

The audience listening to The Love for Three Oranges, his opera, would never think that the composer of this brilliant sunny music could speak that bitterly about the country where he had his first real success. And that 18 years later, he would finally return to his homeland to see new openings for both life and creativity.

A sign of the new era is vaccine tourism to Russia. Foreigners are officially allowed to be vaccinated against coronavirus in the country.

There were plenty of people willing to buy such an unusual tour. The Germans were the first to come to Moscow for the life-saving vaccine.
