Russian Re-pats Meet and Eat

Pyotr Golitsyn, Gerard Andreoli and Rostislav Ordovsky-Tanaevsky

When the Soviet Union collapsed, quite a few descendents of White Russians who had fled the country after the Revolution moved home to Russia. In the early 1990s these Russian re-pats, hailing from Europe and North America, started to meet informally to socialize and eventually founded a Moscow chapter of the Organization of the Descendants of Russian Immigrants. The group got together Saturday, November 13 for a good time at the American Bar & Grill on Zemlyanoi Val.
