Alexander Blinov with Farid Muhametshin, Head ofRossotrudnichestvo

Founded in 2007, the Russian Club in Singapore is a non-governmental non-profit organisation created to unite Russian-speaking expats. It organises children’s festivals and theme parties for Russians in Singapore, as well as for anyone keen on learning more about Russian language and culture.

In September 2008, the Russian Club was registered with the Registry of Societies, Singapore. In November 2008, its President, Alexander Blinov, took part in the annual World Congress of Compatriots in Moscow, where delegates from 90 countries discussed issues of Russian expatriates overseas, such as the preservation of the Russian language, culture and education in the CIS countries and overseas.

“The peculiar aspect of the Russian community in Singapore, which counts about 2,000 people, is that most of them are here for only a couple of years due to business,” divulges Blinov. “The burning issue is the lack of classes taught in Russian. There has been a long felt need for a Russian kindergarten or school, or weekend classes, which is more applicable to our situation. Another downside is that the Russian Club has no premises of its own. Being a non-profit organisation, we cannot achieve the desired level without sponsors’ support. We are currently actively working on it.”

I am true-blue Singaporean. For too long Russia has been demonized by the English-speaking press. I want to know what it's really like.

Hi! My wife and I are planning to visit Moscow and St. Petersburg in July. I checked with Dynasty Travel yesterday. They have a 8-day in Moscow and St. Petersburg itinerary I felt was to short to appreciate what both cities has to offer in terms of its history, culture, architecture and the arts. I am also interested in meeting up with local Russians to understand them better. I think I will be able to accomplish this only with a local Russian travel agency who can tailor such a program for us. The key question is: Which one is is reliable? And, there are many to be found on the internet. Would you have anyone living in Singapore who is interested to give us some tips or recommend a reliable tour agency for a tailored program of about 14 days in Moscow and St. Petersburg and some off the usual tourist spots? Appreciate any assistance you can give us. regards.
