Russkiy Mir Foundation
Mir means Community. Peace. World.
The three meanings of this small but eloquent word inspire and define Russkiy Mir’s mission – to promote understanding and peace in the world by supporting, enhancing and encouraging the appreciation of Russian language, heritage and culture.
Russkiy Mir promotes the teaching of the Russian language within Russia and abroad – both to new learners of the language and to those who already know and love Russian and wish to recapture or maintain their fluency. It brings Russia’s rich history to life, and showcases vibrant examples of Russian art and culture around the world.
Russkiy Mir reconnects the Russian community abroad with their homeland, forging new and stronger links through cultural and social programs, exchanges and assistance in relocation.
