United States Rumors

For Prokhorov, who ran for the Russian presidency this spring, this is a chance to see a cultural exchange between two countries that sometimes don’t see eye-to-eye. “For me, it’s very sad to see the U.S. relationship [with Russia] is getting worse and worse all the time,” Prokhorov said. “What is the reason? Because we have a lack of cultural, business and, before, sports. We have a lot in common … we’re countries with big territory, multi-national, and a very good level of culture. “We have a big Russian diaspora here in the United States, but we still have a lack of business. Maybe that’s the biggest problem. When you have a lack of business and culture, politics is very vulnerable. I hope this cultural event will be a small drop in fulfilling this task … it’s very important.”
