PHOTO REPORTS

Ambassador Yakovenko took part in the opening of the exhibition “Travels in Holy Russia with the Temple Gallery”

On 18 May Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko took part in in “Travels in Holy Russia with the Temple Gallery” opening in Rossotrudnichestvo.

The exhibition of photographs is organized by Sir Richard Temple. Last year Sir Richard took a group of visitors to Russia on a two week trip to visit the museums and churches in and around Moscow and Saint Petersburg.
The photos are the work of two of the guest on the trip (Alain de Lotbiniere and Hans Matschukat) aiming to capture their responses to the places they visited, and they reflect the spiritual riches of Russia as seen by friends from Britain.
Sir Richard Temple is a renowed expert in Orthodox icon painting who has advised the Art Fund, the British Museum and Louvre.

Remarks by Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko at the "Growing Up Bilingual: Educational Perspectives" seminar, 14 June 2018

Ladies and gentlemen, In today's diverse and multicultural world the importance of language training has become more and more significant. This has a special importance for children from diasporas, including the Russian speaking diaspora in Britain. While living in the English language environment, even kids from families, where Russian is spoken at home, lose language skills without learning Russian at school. This is why we commend supplementary Russian schools, like Znaniye.
