Our friends at the World Russia Forum, who recently hosted a remarkable conference in Washington, D.C. at the US Congress, in which RI took part, are the organizers of this event.  They asked us to help spread the word, which we are delighted to do.

Our friend, Ed Lozansky, who runs the forum, will be there, as will, supposedly, the mayor of Moscow, assorted celebrities, and prominent American politicians.  The US ambassador has also been invited.
