I really believe that the world would become better if we communicate and establish warm relationship between us, get to know each other’s cultures and this is the way to reach peace in the world.
My mission and social responsibility is to look after the cultural inheritance, to bring people together.
Today it’s very important for wealthy private individuals to bring patronage of arts in the same way as aristocracy used to do in the past.
We should understand that aristocracy today has almost no real power as it belongs to the public now – that what we call democracy.
I personally hope that we will have strong relationship between Europe and Russia as we have more common points than it may seem at first view.
Even if there are some troubles in politics between countries, people should continue to build relationship, visiting each other and in this case we will stay united and cohesive.
