International life: Where does the idea of the Living Records come from and how did you begin working on the project? Irina Razumovskaya: A couple of years ago I stumbled upon a small book of memoirs written by the son of the philanthropist and businessman Savva Mamontov. These memoirs became the starting point of our project. It is amazing how vast were this man’s interests: he built railways, supported the arts and artists. We were inspired by the delicate little book of his son - Vsevolod Mamontov. We wanted people to discover these and other interesting memoirs.
​Are you 25-35 years old? Young and ambitious? Interested in politics or social work? A specialist in media, culture, science or sports? If this sounds like you, the "New Generation" program offers you a unique opportunity to participate in one of Russia’s youth programs, implemented by Rossotrudnichestvo. It’s not only the opportunity to visit and discover Russia, but also to establish professional contact and build long-term partnerships with Russian governmental and non-governmental structures, youth and public organizations.​
In 1820, Russian seafarers Faddey Bellingshausen and Mikhail Lazarev discovered the world’s last, sixth, continent - Antarctica, thus completing the era of Great Geographical Discoveries. Two centuries on, three training sailing vessels of the Russian Federal Fisheries Agency (Rosrybolovstvo) – the Pallada, the Kruzenshtern and the Sedov, virtually repeated the route of that glorious circumnavigation.
We are used to perceiving science and arts as two separate areas of our society that exist more or less independently. Science is exact. It necessitates rules and regulations, deals with laws, explains and interprets phenomena. Objectivity plays one of the most important roles in science. Arts, in turn, creates something abstract, something that is based on feelings and emotions. It reflects reality through the prism of images and symbols.
All through this unforgettable March, the Corona crisis swept the globe affecting everyone directly and changing the nature of their everyday life. As the streets and squares were turning empty, museums and galleries on all continents - from America to Australia - shut their doors to the public, theatres switched to online-only shows, visual artists did not stop their communication with the real world and its images.
The team of the international youth program of Rossotrudnichestvo "New Generation" on the day of the Great Victory presented a video in which the descendants of the winners living in different countries of the world performed the famous Russian song of those war years "Eh, roads". Check out this touching video. 
Professor Suzanne Ament teaches the history of Russia at the Department of History, University of Radford (Virginia, USA). Whatever she tells her students about, she tries to include a piece of music in the lecture in order to create a “sound background of the era”. Sometimes she picks up a guitar and sings herself - old Russian romances, hiking songs of the Cossacks, bard hits and songs of the Great Patriotic War.

As a 16-year-old high school student in Taiwan, I’ve struggled to find opportunities to make an impact on international issues. Like many passionate students who are involved in Global Affairs and Model UN, I’ve always tried to take initiative and seek out opportunities that can promote youth action for a greater cause. With this drive, I decided to commit myself to the UNODC E4J’s “Educating for the Rule of Law” project when I saw the competition poster on the UNODC website.
