Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 180 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 81 countries worldwide, and 186 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Cancel Culture: Unprecedented Challenges Facing the Media Industry. National Information Policy in the Era of Post-Truth
The mediacratic environment that has primarily been created in the West is manipulative, which, incidentally, is extremely dangerous. It can only be overcome by creating some regulatory mechanisms between those who are ready for this honest information exchange and honest interaction of information

Cancel Culture: Unprecedented Challenges Facing the Media Industry. National Information Policy in the Era of Post-Truth
One of the most important objectives that exists among those with whom we interact is the creation of some sort of digital platforms, including, and above all else, for information and communication interaction, which are managed jointly. I think it’s possible. Moreover, such attempts can be made technologically

Cancel Culture: Unprecedented Challenges Facing the Media Industry. National Information Policy in the Era of Post-Truth
The essence of the current cancel culture is that there is a desperate struggle for power among some very strange new political and social structure, primarily in Western countries […] It’s some sort of governing managerial layer that is immersed in digital history

Cancel Culture: Unprecedented Challenges Facing the Media Industry. National Information Policy in the Era of Post-Truth
I think this situation [the cancelling of Russia] is unique in several ways. First, it’s actually taking place in a brand new information and communication space. Such a space did not previously exist. Interdependence, including in the information field, has never run this counter to the level of regulation in the same area […] The second thing has to do with the fact that there has never been an ideological struggle against such a blurred, in my view, ideological base. It’s all very subjective and extremely contradictory. We see that cancel culture is basically a crude manipulative technology in the hands of a certain group of people

Great Challenges and Opportunities for the Far East and Arctic
The most important thing is that this success, if Russia achieves it, will not prevent anyone from living. On the contrary, it will only help. This is a rare case where the success of one allows the success of others

A New Europe: What Is Russia to Expect?
Russia is of course a part of Europe. However, we are somewhat different to Europe, and Europe is somewhat different to us. This does not mean that we stand in opposition to each other, though. It means that we can create a system of values and a system of understanding which can be used to find a workable and robust formula for development

An information picture of the world often proves to be inaccurate and distorted, overloaded with bias and warped judgments. As a result, we have a serious problem of ensuring the full value and completeness of the information picture we get

Turning Back the Clock: Political Rivalry vs Economic Interaction
The interdependence of the world is so great that we lack global regulation with this power of connections. In relations between Russia, Iran, and China, we are seeing sprouts of new types of organizations of world government and new global legal relations. The current political tensions are dictated by fears about the inevitability of a future in which we will have to think about global regulation. The modernization of such institutions is inevitable
