The year 2012 has great importance to all Russians. In the course of the following twelve months they will celebrate a number of anniversaries, involving the anniversary of 1150-year existence of Russia, quadricentennial of the reclamation of Moscow from the Poles, and the bicentennial of the victory over Napoleon. Quite understandably, therefore, Dmitry Medvedev had proclaimed the year 2012 as the Year of Russian History.
The current year is also an important period for the internal social-political situation within Russia. It may bring about a number of changes following the parliamentary and presidential elections, which may form a basis for deep reforms of the Russian political scene. Irrespective of the current political events, Russian Federation is subjecting to numerous internal cultural transformations. A glance at all these events from the perspective of 2012 may facilitate a good starting point to present the results of the cooperation of Polish and foreign researchers.
Primary thematic fields of the conference:
– Russian historical policy and propaganda;
– parliamentary and presidential elections in Russia;
