#M100SC participant Maria Stepanova argues for mutual work of understanding between Russia and the West

“The last years – the grim years in the history of contemporary Russia – were marked with the growing alienation between Russia and the West. Do we still have a chance to keep the dialogue working?  After the times of joint work and fruitful exchange we’re facing disillusionment and disintegration – but that is also something that can be seen as a new challenge. In the dark times it is becoming even more important to continue the mutual work of understanding, to withstand the logic of alienation and incomprehension.”
