At this very venue, in Borisoglebskiy Pereulok in Moscow we will be able to see the semantic culmination of interlaced Russian culture, history, literature and arts, the interweaving of tradition and innovation. We’ll be able to see the outstanding achievements of our home artists: their thoughts, words and deeds.
I wish we could comply with the great ones.
