Ladies and gentlemen, I'm pleased to be here today, at this, I believe, largest exhibition in the UK of what used to be called "underground art" in the Soviet Union. Basically all the "big names" are gathered at this exhibition - Kulik, the Kabakovs, Komar and Melamid, Bruskin, Mamyshev-Monroe and others. This wouldn't have been possible without the support of Russian Direct Investment Fund, the Tsukanov Family Foundation, Blavatnik Family Foundation and other sponsors.

Mr Chairman, Mr High Commissioner, Ladies and gentlemen, International relations are going through a difficult phase.
