I realize that your social media articles are full of results for the year and I still wrote this. Pictures of pre-HNY St Petersburg and Moscow are included to reduce pain.
In the last post of 2018, I would like to summarize the results of this year and mention some of the highlights of the past few years. As you may have noticed, I have not blogged many times since 2017. I started this blog back in 2013 when I was a freelance translator. In 2015 I started working at a museum as an international communications specialist and left two years later at the PR organization (which closed at the end of 2017 so I moved to another – E8). It was a transition from office to vacation. By the way, this blog has really helped to get your job.
The projects in both organizations were related – you think – to Russia and Russian culture in particular. Also, these activities were very similar: they were not political* digital programs related to social media.
While it is obvious, I have found that Russian culture is very appealing to many people around the world. It is harder to understand this simple point from Russia (n ideas) than to witness what an outsider is doing online or IRL. Showing off its best outdoor appearance (Russian weather case) or show Russia directly (during Follow Siberia tours) – many positive comments also confirm that the importance of Russian culture in its high-profile, popular and everyday appearance in various parts of the world is enormous and does not go anywhere.
I have also met many famous people around the world (including Russia!) – playwrights, travel and life, musicians, musicians, runners, journalists, writers, PR gurus, and many more, and have become friends with some of them. .
I want to end this post with a simple message: do not hate, speak!
*Even the wonder of Russian leaves no doubt that some would say that ‘Russia uses art and culture’.
