How to improve the image of Russia in the west
Not only Russia is working on improving its image. For example, countries such as Ireland, Israel, Ukraine, China or Poland, and many others too, involve their numerous national diasporas in this process, which have been living in the West for several generations. Unfortunately, for historical reasons, the main part of the Russian diaspora, whose opinion can be heard, are the descendants of white immigrants. Not all of them are ready to represent modern Russia and vouch for it with their name. Those immigrants who came abroad later are fragmented and do not represent real political power.
Political observers believe that the creation of Russian public organizations that would deal with foreign policy issues can improve the image of Russia in the west. Such today exist, but the number of their representative offices operating in the USA, Canada and Europe is very limited.The Institute for Democracy and Cooperation, with offices in New York and Paris, was recently created, but this is certainly not enough.
One of the well-known opponents of the current Russian government, Edward Lucas, columnist for the London edition of the Economist, who recently published his political study New Cold War, notes that the question of improving Russia's image in the West cannot be raised at all - because it depends on reality, and if it is bad, then the image cannot be improved. Consequently, one of the ways to improve the image of the country is to carry out democratic transformations, not only in the form of declarations, but also in reality.
Anyway, our government is trying to make further attempts. Now it is planned to open an information center in Washington. Its functions will include the provision of complete and objective information about everything that is happening in the country, as well as the holding of seminars, conferences and briefings, to which leading Russian and American political analysts will be invited. The center plans to conduct internships for international students from Russia on its territory and provide grants and scholarships to American experts who wish to study in our country.
