The poet Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin is the most loved figure in Russian culture and the personification of the Russian spirit.
Accomplishing worthwhile projects and building international goodwill under his banner is the greatest tribute to the poet and a service to humanity. This is the mission of the Pushkin Fund.
From its inception in 1997, Pushkin Fund has been dedicated to preserving the legacy of the poet. These efforts have been realized by virtue of various diplomatic gatherings, conferences and charitable gala and entertainment events resulting in the support of Pushkin heritage projects including conservations, restorations, translations, publications, and the support of social welfare projects.
The history of the last decade, leading to the current dire situation in Ukraine, have brought Russia and the west to the brink. One can only anticipate that at some point in the hopeful near future, a meaningful dialogue and a rebuilding of verifiable trust must ensue.
It is with this view to the future that the Pushkin Fund, with its distinguished history and reputation, offers a discrete platform for the restoration of diplomatic dialogue and cultural exchange.
Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin once said, “I have built a monument not wrought by hands.” The Pushkin Fund seeks to preserve that monument as a beacon of light for the diplomatic community, with a view toward transcending borders, both physical and ideological, and cultivating our mutually shared goals for future generations.
