Russian culture has always distinguished itself by its amazing ability to absorb the very best of world culture, whilst at the same time maintaining its own identity and spirit. We are helping to preserve and enrich our precious heritage in order to hand it on to the next generation. It is also important to introduce Russian culture to the world and acquaint Russians with the finest examples of foreign art.

"Our family highly values the national traditions, as well as the cultural, scientific and spiritual heritage of our country. We support culture, because we believe that history and art represent not just Russia’s past, but also its future."

Elena Timchenko
