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.

Ed, who is a naturalized American citizen, says he’s got a wagonload of American flags which he hopes to hand out to Americans, so if you are American, and want to show your support, be sure to find him there and get a flag!
