Dear CCI Friends, We are honored to have had a two-hour meeting with President Mikhail Gorbachev on September 4, 2018. This event was prior to our delegation of U.S. ‘citizen diplomats’ traveling across Russia to investigate how fifteen far-out cities in ten regions are faring. Gorbachev’s decades-long private interpreter, Pavel Palazhchenko, was present to assure […]

Our warmest wishes to you as we enter December 2018!!! In the spirit of this wonderful month of Christmas, Hanukkah, Fiesta of Guadalupe, Kwanzaa and other holidays … we will share with you some of the great CCI experiences we had this year. It’s been a twelve month period full of Americans and Russians traveling to […]

CCI Friends, Pat Buchanan poses a question below that we hope Donald Trump and his advisors will take seriously. Crimea was taken back into Russia with a citizen-demand of 93% of her voters… thus making the Sea of Azov a Russian lake. With vast technology supporting the whole process, above and below the bridge, it […]
Dear CCI Readers, Never have I had more supporters and detractors than with yesterday’s post regarding the Azov debacle! Worse still, I quoted Patrick Buchanan (whose humorous pieces I usually enjoy) regarding the Azov waters being like a “Russian lake.” It sounded reasonable at a quick glance… but later, looking at a larger map of […]
Dear CCI Friends, If there is any month that seems appropriate to discuss ‘things of the spirit,’ it is December, since Christmas, Hanukkah and other spiritual traditions are clumped together in this month. I’d like to share with you my evolving thoughts on Russian Orthodoxy, in addition to a CCI YouTube below that we recently […]
Dear Friends, You may be asking, “How does CCI find all of these Russian people to host Americans in cities and regions across Russia?” It’s very simple. Between 1988 and 2008, we brought more than 8,000 Russians to American cities. They came on various CCI trips: from simple citizen diplomacy to more sophisticated programs such as […]
Dear CCI Friends, To those of you who have participated directly in our face-to-face diplomacy both across Russia and here in our American cities, we are so grateful to you. Also, many thanks to those of you who have become informal educators, resending CCI’s educational emails to your colleagues, friends and families. We greatly appreciate […]
Dear CCI Friends, We are sending belated reports from our travelers who visited Russia’s regions this past September. Relatively few Americans have visited the city of Irkutsk, Siberia which is 4,200 kilometers or 2,260 miles due east from Moscow. Russia is approximately 6,000 miles wide. Irkutsk was settled in 1661 as a Cossack community. Following […]

Dear CCI Friends, Enjoy this report from lovely Krasnodar in the south of Russia. In September, our CCI travelers Pamela Tetarenko and Bill Headley visited the region for four days. In this short writing, they will become wonderful reporters for you to vicariously enjoy this city and its warm people. Sharon Tennison Center for Citizen […]

He urges that in order to ensure the existence of our […]
