28.04.2016 - "Shakespeare and Tolstoy – the best rescue team for Russia-UK relations" (By Ambassador Yakovenko for RBTH)

“Two households, both alike in dignity, from ancient grudge break to new mutiny” – applying Shakespeare’s words to the current state of relations between London and Moscow wouldn’t be much of an exaggeration. Still, another poet, the Russian Sergei Yesenin, noted that “When face to face we cannot see the face, we should step back for better observation”. And while we have stepped back politically, we now have a clearer vision of the mutual cultural attraction. With diplomatic and economic contacts stalled, we realize the importance of the humanitarian dimension, people-to-people contacts which help get over whatever adverse geopolitical weather outdoors.
