15/16 October 2022, Panda Platforma, Berlin

Dear friends,

Demokrati-JA invites you to the first congress of civil pro-democratic and pro-European organizations and initiatives of the community of Russians and people associated with Russia in Germany.

The long-term goal of our mutual work is to create a strong civil society of Russians and citizens of other countries connected to Russia and its culture in Germany.

Together with our like-minded people we strive to create such a society not only in Germany, where we are directly located, but also in other countries and, of course, in Russia itself, where our relatives and friends live, and where some of us are going to return one day.

We are creating a global civil society united by common values.
