Prekrasnyi Rips Off Lermontov

Здравствуйте RCS. This is John Prekrasnyĭ broadcasting along the military road back from Tiflis. Fortunately for you most of my notes have been lost since then, though luckily for me the case and the rest of the things in it have survived. We have many up and coming events that the RCS will be hosting.

On Tuesday (Oct. 25), the RCS is proud to host a film screening of “Love Me Please” with director Valery Balayan. The film is devoted to a talented young journalist from Sevastopol whose life was cut short by a bullet shot by a neo-Nazi killer. The film also examines how the few remaining human rights activists in Russia can continue to be effective today. After the film, there will be a Q&A with the director, following with a dinner.
