‘Tying the Knots’ of American-Russian Friendship

On June 7, the American-Russian Cultural Cooperation Foundation celebrated the 150th anniversary of the historic U.S. Navy’s goodwill mission to Russia, reciprocating the Russian Navy’s goodwill visit during the Civil War. President George H.W. Bush sent his greetings on “this timely celebration of historic memories.” The event at the Army and Navy Club included distinguished speakers as well as musical and dance entertainment culminating with a rousing audience sing-a-long conducted by Alexey Karabanov, chief conductor of the Rimsky-Korsakov Central Navy Band of Russia.
