Since the end of September 2020, the German Embassy in Russia, the Goethe-Institut in Moscow and the Russian-German Chamber of Commerce are holding the "Year of Germany in Russia 2020/2021".
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many events such as major German-Russian art exhibitions, tours, concerts and festivals throughout Russia have not been able to take place as planned. These events were postponed until the second half of 2021.
The project partners of the Year of Germany 2020/2021 in the Russian Federation report that the German government has decided to extend the Year of Germany until mid-November 2021. Its completion is planned in the context of the St. Petersburg International Cultural Forum, to which Germany has been invited as a special guest.
The decision to extend the initiative is connected with the hope of implementing many additional projects within the framework of the Year of Germany and contributing to the strengthening of German-Russian relations.
