Who are we?

Founded in 2012, we are a solely student led and organised society based at University College London, promoting interest in matters regarding Business, Finance, Politics, Economics, Law and Culture in all of the CIS and Russian-speaking countries. For almost three years we have been hard at work building a society that will bring together the potential that Russia and other Russian-speaking countries can offer to an extremely talented student body at UCL and in the UK.

Our Aims


We strive to provide first-class opportunities to our members by opening them the doors to meeting the most professional organisations and individuals through a range of all-year-round events hosted by us or our partners both within and outside UCL campus.


We want to make it possible for everyone interested in CIS and Russian-speaking countries to share our passions and be involved in a discovery on the current state of politics, economy, investment climate and culture of those countries through various lectures, discussion panels debates and networking events.


We aim to support our partners by providing them with a direct access through our numerous marketing channels to the pool of highly talented students united by their willingness to learn and communicate.
