In St. Petersburg, Russian and American scientists will discuss the role and place of Americans in revolutionary Petrograd and the history of Russia in 1914-1921. The conference "Americans in revolutionary Petrograd" will be held on October 6 and 7 in the Golden Hall of the new university building on 6/1 Gagarinskaya Street.
"The role of Americans in the Russian revolution, whether it is observers or active participants in the events, remains insufficiently studied in Russia in the USA," the conference organizers say.
Among the topics declared at the conference: "The journey of Karl Akkerman to revolutionary Russia and the formation of the image of the Bolshevik threat" (Doctor of Historical Sciences Ivan Kurilla); "Albert Rhys Williams and the Russian Revolution" (Professor William Benton Weisenhant); "American Radicals in Revolutionary Russia: Between Images and Reality" (Doctor of Historical Sciences Viktoria Zhuravleva) and others.

At the end of September, the European University in St. Petersburg received a notice of refusal to issue a new educational license. Earlier it was reported that Rosobrnadzor revealed a mismatch of some parameters of the building (Gagarinskaya St., 6), where the European University was temporarily moved, to the requirements of the legislation that are imposed on educational institutions.
