Russian Federation COA - Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, Prime-Minister Vladimir Putin

The Kremlin, Moscow November 4, 2009
President of Russia,Dmitry Medvedev congratulated the people of Russia on the Day of National Unity holiday.
The President attended the ceremony unveiling a memorial chapel honouring Prince Dmitry Pozharsky at the Spaso-Yevfimiyev Monastery in Suzdal.

Prince Pozharsky is buried in the family vault at the Spaso-Yevfimiyev Monastery, which was built on the orders of Grand Princes Nikolai and Mikhail Romanov. In 1858, a voluntary subscription was launched in the Russian Empire to raise funds for a gravestone for Prince Pozharsky. Work on the chapel and mausoleum went on for almost 25 years. The chapel was opened in June 1885.

In the summer of 1923, the monastery was turned into a camp for political prisoners and the gravestones, including Prince Pozharsky’s, were removed from the monastery cemetery.
In November 2007, Mr Medvedev, then First Deputy Prime Minister, approved the idea of restoring the memorial.
Speaking at the unveiling ceremony, the President congratulated Russia’s people on the Day of National Unity holiday.
Dmitry Medvedev awarded state decorations to foreign citizens who have made a great contribution to building friendship and cooperation with Russia at an official reception marking Day of National Unity at the Kremlin.

In 2009 Russia marks 200 years since the birth of Russian classic Nikolai Gogol. Russian publishers, theater figures and filmmakers are getting ready for the jubilee.
Gogol Museum Moscow -By Kerry Kubilius,
Gogol Museum Commemorates Contentious Author:
Nikolai Gogol, a Ukrainian-born writer who wrote in Russian, is claimed by both Ukraine and Russia as a their own. Whatever country Gogol would have ultimately associated himself with, we do know that he spent time in Moscow, most notably his last months, during which he destroyed one of his manuscripts. The rooms in which Gogol passed his final hours have been turned into a museum.

Refurbishment of the Gogol Museum: The Gogol Museum, or the Gogol House (Dom Gogolya), underwent refurbishment in honor of the 200th anniversary of Gogol's birthday on April 1, 2009. Visitors to the museum can see the fireplace in which Gogol threw his manuscript for Dead Souls, a clock which shows the hour Gogol destroyed the manuscript (3 o'clock in the morning), and the parlor in which Gogol entertained his contemporaries.

    Nikolai Gogol museum opens in Moscow
    MOSCOW, March 27 (RIA Novosti) - A museum devoted to Nikolai Gogol opened in Moscow on Friday in the building where the writer spent the last four years of his life. The museum includes a mock fireplace in the parlor, where the writer burnt the second volume of his satirical novel Dead Souls hours before his death.

    The clock on the mantle shows 3 a.m., the time when the novel is believed to have been destroyed. The published first volume of Dead Souls spotlighted the unseemly sides of the 19th-century Russia, while the second volume reputedly showed the good side of life.

    In the parlor, frequented by many literary dignitaries during Gogol's lifetime, the writer also read his play The Inspector General, a violent satire of Russian provincial bureaucracy, to actors from the Maly Theater.

    The decor was restored by museum creators based on the reminiscences of the writer's contemporaries, as few of Gogol's belongings have survived.

    Exhibits in the six-room exposition feature a recently discovered original portrait of Gogol, as well as hand-written copies and printed editions of his writings.

    The museum was unveiled ahead of the 200th anniversary, on April 1, of the Ukrainian-born Russian writer's birthday.

    Gogol's other well-known works include satirical short stories Nose (1835-1836), which tells of an official whose nose leaves his face and lives its own life, and Overcoat (1842), a story of the life and death of an impoverished clerk extremely dedicated to his job.
