The Germany Year in Russia 2020/21 project aims to look into the future and to present Germany as a modern, future-oriented country and a reliable European partner for Russia and its citizens.  The organizers plan to show the many aspects and various facets of life in Germany, but also in German-Russian relations, and to strengthen joint networks. Emphasis is placed on dialogue and encounters between people, as bilateral relations depend on this exchange.
