On the occasion of the Russian national day, the Day of National Unity, a Festive Academy was held at the Russian Center for Science and Culture “Russian House” in Belgrade.

The official academy was opened by the ambassador of the Russian Federation in the Republic of Serbia, H.E. Alexander Botsan-Kharchenko, addressing the dignitaries. He pointed out that the Russian people find the strength in true values, to which they have always been faithful. It is this unity, despite all the obstacles, that gives us the energy to move forward – said ambassador.

The ambassador Botsan-Kharchenko said that there are numerous examples of the historical and cultural connection between Serbia and Russia, and one of them is the timeless novel “Anna Karenina” by Leo Nikolayevich Tolstoy. Namely, the prototype of Alexei Vronsky’s character was the Russian colonel Nikolai Rajevsky, who bravely died in the First Serbian-Turkish War near Gornji Adrovec. The Church of the Holy Trinity, known among Serbs as the “Russian Church”, was built at the place of his death.

For this occasion, the Post of Serbia and Srbijamarka, in cooperation with the Russian House, prepared and presented to those present at the ceremony a special edition of postage stamps, the issue of which was organized on the occasion of the 145th anniversary of the first edition of this famous classic of world literature.

The first philatelic set of postage stamps was symbolically presented to the adviser of the President of the Russian Federation for culture, Leo Tolstoy’s great-grandson – Vladimir Tolstoy.
