What is LACRUS?


To move forward means to look back at the past


In the context of vertiginous historical change the role of countries and regions is increasing significantly. Our young team offers a new communication format that involves all the active, creative people interested in Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) and Russia (RUS) relations.

Therefore we present to you the LACRUS project. Latin America, the Caribbean and Russia intertwined in a common desire for positive dialogue, exchange and integration, not only between countries but also between the continents.

LACRUS is designed to propose new communication tools, aimed at improving the knowledge of the two seemingly distant worlds. This project declares the desire to achieve a new level in communications by means of modern technologies, offering interesting publications and launching special events, including presentations and conferences of political, cultural, social and business experts originated from Russia and Latin America.

LACRUS proposes the dissemination of relevant information about the way of life in the two continents and more than thirty countries. Through the media and social networks in real time we can share the most interesting facts of life in Latin America and Russia.

The comments and analytical publications of various authors on the relevance of the interaction between Russia and the countries of Latin America, including translations of the most important foreign articles on a wide range of topics, will be available soon.

LACRUS is created in order to motivate our people and give them the opportunity to build a new cultural, educational, academic and business communication, as well as generate interpersonal contacts that contribute to the positive development of cooperation between the two continents.

Thanks to LACRUS you will be able to participate in activities focused on creating a positive image of Russia in Latin America and on the development of the presence of Latin America in our country.

LACRUS aims to unite on a single platform the diversity of national and international projects and initiatives dedicated to Latin American issues, as well as try to unite creative, proactive and open people to this type of innovative and complex solutions in the modern communication space.

We express our sincere gratitude to our mentors and teachers Lázar S. Jeifets and Victor L. Jeifets for their support and assistance in the creation of this project.

We, as a team of LACRUS, want to help to ensure that the link between our continents is indissoluble and, beyond the real integration to which we aspire, we also seek to complement it with a virtual integration through the means of modern communication technologies.

With your help, we intend to turn Russia and Latin America into close and neighbourly regions to discover again and again how attractive our cultures are to each other.

We firmly believe in this conviction. Welcome to LACRUS.
