Gagarin in London

The British Council has just put up a fascinating video about the Gagarin statue and exhibition currently on in London (exhibition closes on 27 September). ┬áThis project has been really inspiring, I think – a great contribution to relations between Britain and Russia. And by the way, well done to British Prime Minister David Cameron for having a go at speaking Russian when he was in Moscow yesterday – only a phrase, but at least he made the effort.
