A Russian prize awarded to the head of the de beers company

Chairman of the Board of Directors of the De Beers diamond producing company Nicolas Oppenheimer has been awarded the Russian International Prize of Saint Andrew the First Called, RIA Novosti was told in the Russian Centre of National Glory.

The Russian International Prize of Saint Andrew the First Called was instituted in 1992 by the Apostle Andrew the First Called Foundation with the blessing of Patriarch Alexis II.

The prize is awarded "For the contribution to the political, spiritual, intellectual, economic, defence and cultural might of Russia" and is annually presented to several winners chosen by the Foundation's Public Council whose members are the prize winners of the past years.

The prize does not have a monetary content. Its winner receives a precise copy of the historical order of Saint Andrew the First Called on the ribbon, a certificate and an icon of the Apostle Andrew the First Called.

In 2000, at the decision of the Foundation's Council the prize was given the status of an international prize and is awarded both to Russian citizens and to foreigners.

A year after the constitutional referendum of December 4th, 2016 that saw the victory of the NAY and the blatant defeat of the government front that had proposed the referendum, it can be said with certainty that the trauma for the defeated is now past. But there is still fear in them, not so hidden either...

Italy: Free fall

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
