Gala Honoring Lomonosov and Franklin Held at Russian Embassy in Washington DC

14.10.2011 14:01


The Russian embassy in Washington paid homage to Russian scientist Mikhail Lomonosov and American diplomat, inventor and journalist Benjamin Franklin by throwing a party in their honor. "They were the first to start building constantly developing and sustainable scientific relations between Russia and America," said Ambassador Sergei Kislyak.

The ambassador noted that that Lomonosov became "wise and great" without any sponsors or grants. The Americans in turn noted that Franklin began his independent life "hungry and without a penny in his pocket." But in the end they both found great success because they weren't among those "many witty men whose brains can't fill their bellies," was Franklin once remarked.

Wayne Clough, Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, was awarded the annual prize of the American-Russian Cultural Cooperation Foundation for his contribution to promoting bilateral humanitarian ties. Its previous laureates include Mstislav Rostrpovich, Igor Moiseyev, Valery Gergiev and Van Clyburn.
