Pushkin House was established for the enjoyment, understanding and promotion of Russian culture in all its forms and for the exchange of views in a lively, informal atmosphere, with freedom of speech a core principle.
'Pushkin occupies a unique position in the history of Russian culture, and is treasured by all Russians wherever they may be. He can truly be called the founder of original Russian literature, and at the same time he was receptive to the genius of other nations, both Western and Eastern... We could not have found a more inspiring symbol of our aspirations.’
Pushkin Club Inauguration 1954
