Today, nearly 11 thousand Syrian schoolchildren study the Russian language. Instructors for these students are trained in the Russian Language Department of Damascus University, where our compatriot Svetlana Rodygin teaches.

From an early age the famous explorer Matvey Shparo has followed in the steps (or more accurately, the ski trails) of his legendary father Dmitry Shparo, whose records expanded the boundaries of human ability. Matvey has completed dozens of unique arctic expeditions on skis, made it into the Guinness Book of World Records, and earned national awards. In an interview with Russkiy Mir the explorer told us that the Arctic is for him a love and a challenge.
From early childhood on, every Russian learns to recognize his face in even its most stylized representation. His fairy tales are among the first things that Russians remember from their childhood. In a well-known test, when people are asked to quickly name any flower, fruit, and Russian poet, 98% respond: “red, apple, Pushkin.” Even a person who has no interest in literature will remember that Pushkin is the “sun of Russian poetry” and “our all.”
Countess Nadezhda Filaretovna von Meck was a famous nineteenth-century Russian patron of the arts. Tchaikovsky would often visit and work at the von Meck estate, and he dedicated several musical works to his “best friend” there. Nadezhda von Meck supported other musicians as well: Nikolai Rubinstein, Claude Debussy, and Henryk Wieniawski. A correspondent from Russkiy Mir met with the Dutch great-great-great-granddaughter of Nadezhda von Meck, the art photographer Nadja Willems.
