Yesterday the Sokolniki exhibition pavilions for one day turned into the shooting ground for Leonid Parfyonov, a renowned journalist and TV-host.
Back in 1959 Sokolniki welcomed the first American National Exhibition in the USSR. Here Nikita Khrushchev promised Richard Nixon to “teach the Americans what’s what” (which in Russian sounded like an untranslatable idiomatic expression “show the mother of Kuzma”). Fifty something years later the famous aphorism was pronounced here once again, now by the great journalist of our time.
When the shooting was over Leonid Parfyonov couldn’t help visiting one more historic show — the II International Exhibition of Calligraphy. The unique project symbolized a new era in the history of Sokolniki and the cultural restoration of Russia.
The famous journalist highly appreciated the artistic value of the exhibition and the virtuosic organization of this outstanding cultural event.Back to list
