New Russian Culture in Estonia

Uus vene kultuur Eestis (New Russian Culture in Estonia or UVKE) is a non­profit cultural organization founded by Sandra Kossorotova and Gustav Kalm in 2014. UVKE introduces new exciting Russian culture to Estonian­-speaking and Russian­-speaking audiences in Estonia, thus bringing the two language communities together. At the Photographic Art Fair UVKE represents Maxim Mjödov and Kirill Tulin.
