A Message from Mikhail Piotrovsky

Dear Friends,

The world has gone mad, and it will never be the same again. Things that are happening right now are unfathomable, they should never happen…

Yet we must keep calm in this madness, because our mission of protecting cultural bridges between the nations has become even more important than ever. It is for us to keep this fragile connection between people, help the nations listen to each other and get back to dialogue instead of violence. Our coordinated efforts will be needed to help culture survive through turbulent times. And here, our personal relations are important.

Friendship is tested in difficult times. And I thank you all for your friendly feelings towards the Hermitage.

— Mikhail Piotrovsky and colleagues
