Russian Emigrant became the same cultural hero as a British colonel or German philosopher (to say nothing about the French lover or Latin dictator). The traditions and novations, the motives and invariants, the clichés and changes of emigration become awfully actual because now Russia exiles the new wave of political emigrants (not only political but moral and existential). It gives birth to a new generation of literature and sociology and leads us to the necessity of constructing a New Russia somewhere in the world – may be in this very audience.
