The fourth meeting from the cycle started in 2012 on the situation in contemporary Poland and Russia with an emphasis on culture, history and national heritage. The idea of the Russian meetings was conceived in cooperation with the Centre for Polish Russian Dialogue and Un-derstanding, falling within the tradition of debates on the culture of European countries held in the Ravens Hall.
