Starting from 6 PM on Wednesday, November 15th, Street Art Museum will host BBC Global Questions program. The main topic of the discussion is the influence of the last century events on the development of modern Russia.
One hundred years ago, Lenin and his Bolsheviks seized power at the Winter Palace in St Petersburg – the October revolution of 1917 was one of the turning points of modern history: it shaped not only Russia but the modern world. A century on, Global Questions returns to St Petersburg to assess the Russia of today, in particular through the eyes of its younger generation. Soviet communism has collapsed, but what has replaced it? Has post-Communist Russia lived up to the dreams of its people, and if not, what changes and reforms do they want to see?
BBC World Television will host a discussion in English with Zeinab Badawi (6 PM – 7 PM) followed by a Russian language programme with Oleg Antonenko (7.30 PM – 8.30 PM). Panellists will be announced soon.
