Culture and Education

In 2014, under sponsor support of Vnesheconombank, the Museums of the Moscow Kremlin hosted a unique exhibition "India. The Jewellery That Conquered the World". The exposition included about 300 jewellery pieces of art created during five centuries by the best Indian and European jewellers.

Also, Vnesheconombank sponsored the exhibition "Grand Masters of Renaissance Art
from the Carrara Academy Gallery" at the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts as part of the announced Year of Italian Tourism in Russia. The visitors could enjoy 58 masterpieces
by famous Renaissance artists.

In the reporting year, Vnesheconombank charitably supported projects such as the establishment of Nikita Mikhalkov’s Academy of Cinematographic and Theatrical Arts, research activities by the Federal State Budgetary Institution of Culture to prepare a large scale refurbishment of Muromtsevo (country estate of Khrapovitsky) in the State
Vladimir-Suzdal Historic-Architectural and Art Open-air Museum.

The Bank also supported the project on preserving and reconditioning the historic and memorial monuments "Russian Necropolis in Beograd" occasioned with the centenary
of the First World War. The project envisages reconstructing the graves of Russian soldiers and emigrants that came to Serbia after the October Revolution, and Iverskaya Chapel — one of the symbols of the centuries-long relations between Russia and Serbia.

As a sponsor, Vnesheconombank participated in the implementation of a museum and theatrical project timed to coincide with the 215th anniversary of the birth of Alexander Pushkin as part of the Year of the Russian Language and Literature in Germany.

Charitable support was provided for the organisation of an international competition entitled Children's New Wave under the guidance of Igor Krutoi as part of events dedicated
to the return of Crimea and Sevastopol to Russia.
