Heritage activists honoured on Diplomats' Day

On 9 February 2018, at the reception on the occasion of Diplomats' Day, Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko presented letters of recognition to those who contributed to the commemoration of the anniversary of Peter I's visit to London. Ambassador Yakovenko said:

''This year marks an important diplomatic anniversary. 320 years ago the Grand Embassy of Peter the Great set foot in London. He was eager to find out about the latest achievements in science and technology and create new diplomatic alliances. Of course, England couldn’t escape his attention. He mostly studied shipbuilding under a false name at the Deptford Dockyard, but he also met King William III, and, reportedly, Isaac Newton. The popular Deptford legend goes that he planted a mulberry tree at the Sayes Court Park. In 1990s a memorial marked the tree, but it went missing. But now, in cooperation with the Sayes Court Garden, the Lewisham Council and the Russian Heritage committee a new memorial stone was unveiled in January. I would like to present letters of recognition to those who contributed most to the memorable event we had in Deptford:

Alex Kirilin, sculptor 

Alex Ratsevits, Russian Albion

Tatiana Dittrich, Peter the Great Day and Goodge Street Theatre

Robert Bagley, Sayes Court Garden

Joanna Angell, Sayes Court Garden

I would also like to thank the chair of Russian Heritage Nikita Lobanov-Rostovsky and secretary Julia Pliaukstaа who received awards on an earlier occasion.''

Ambassador also met with Cllr Obajimi Adefiranye, Chair of Lewisham Council, where the monument is located.
