According to the head of Foreign Ministry Department for work with compatriots abroad Oleg Malginov, it is devoted to 100th anniversary of the Great October revolution. Its topic is 100th anniversary of Russian Revolution: Unity for the Sake of Future. The main topic will be consolidation of Russian community in other countries.

The diplomat has explained that all branches of the community will gather at this large forum in Moscow, including grandchildren of migrants who left the Motherland after the Revolution, young people actively participating in expat communities’ organizations.

“We need to analyze what happened at that time and how Russians feel like living abroad now. Is it possible to consolidate the community considering the current strategy of Russia without losing the sense of solidarity’, Malginov explained.

According to him, the focus will be made on unity for the sake of future and not on the historical part. At the same time, Russian Foreign Ministry is sure that without historical analysis it is impossible to understand the degree of harmful impact of the internal counteraction which could result in the real conflict.

Soviet cars are greeted with welcoming car klaxons honking on the streets of New York, Berlin or Tokyo. It's a long time since German students bought Zhiguli cars, and French farmers acquired Lada Niva. As of today, collectors are chasing Volga, Pobeda (Victory) and Moskvich (Muscovite), which are exhibited in museums and in public squares. For many foreigners, Soviet cars are curiosity and novelty, but for Russian compatriots they symbolize nostalgia and connection with their homeland.
Every year in April we commemorate the glorious day of April 12, 1961. It was the day when Yuri Gagarin, the first man of the new space era, was brought to near-earth orbit by the Vostok-1 spacecraft. The flight lasted just a little over an hour and a half, but it turned Gagarin into a figure that has been admired throughout the world ever since. The feat accomplished by Gagarin 60 years ago inspires us to recall the incredible connection of his story with Lolita Torres - a singer and one of the top actresses from Argentina's golden era of cinema.
