Russia day with Russian Standard in London
Over 1,300 drinks were served, including the hero serve — Russian Mule in copper mug — which went down a treat in the hot sunshine.
The event took place in the beautiful gardens of the Russian Embassy in Kensington. Guests included members of the House of Lords, representatives of British state institutions, diplomats, journalists and culture and art representatives of the Russian-speaking community. The Russian Ambassador to the UK, Alexander Yakovenko, greeted the guests.
