is pleased to invite you to a luncheon with guest of honor
Former Russian Ambassador to France
He will speak to the Club (in French) on:
L'avenir des relations entre la Russie et la France et la Russie et l'Europe
With a diplomatic career in France spanning seven presidencies - from George Pompidou to Emmanuel Macron - and culminating in his nomination to the position of Russian Ambassador to France (2008 to 2017), few are more adept at giving a candid look into past, present and future relations between Russia and France than Alexandre Orlov himself.
In May of 2017 Ambassador Orlov spearheaded the meeting of Presidents Macron and Putin in what would become the Trianon Dialogue, an annual forum aimed at giving French and Russian civil societies the opportunity to move past their differences by embracing their diversity.
Join us as Ambassador Orlov, acting Executive Secretary General of the Trianon Dialogue, gives us a detailed view into the values that unite the two countries and all they have in common in continuing to build a strong alliance within, and beyond Europe.
Alexandre Orlov set off his diplomatic journey in the former Soviet Union under Leonid Brezhnev. Under Mikhail Gorbachev he closely observed the rapid succession of events which ultimately transformed the USSR until its dissolution in 1991. Following his tenure at the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, he pursured his passion for all things French which ultimately drove him to become the Russian Ambassador to France for nine years. Among his many successes, the construction of the Russian cathedral and cutltural center on the Quai Branly in Paris, Ambassador Orlov will have forever left a mark on history.
