Russian Spiritual and Cultural Center in Paris will begin working without official opening

The Russian Spiritual and Cultural Center in Paris will begin working normally without an official opening ceremony, Mikhail Shvydkoy, the Russian president's special representative on international cultural cooperation, told Interfax.
"It will be working normally, an official opening ceremony will take place when there is an official delegation. It is normal, such things happen, too. The center will be working, just the official opening ceremony will be postponed," he said.
Shvydkoy did not specify the exact date of the opening.

It was reported on Tuesday that Russian President Vladimir Putin had cancelled his visit to Paris, which had been scheduled for October 19.

Russian presidential press officer Dmitry Peskov said Russia will wait for this comfortable time and the president (Vladimir Putin) will again consider the possibility of paying such a visit in the event that such an issue is on the agenda.

Shvydkoy said the exhibit entitled 'Icons of Modern Art. The Shchukin Collection, Hermitage Museum - Pushkin Museum' will open at the Louis Vuitton Foundation on October 20 and will last until February 20, 2017.
