The “Dialogue Franco-Russe” Association was established in 2004 by both Russian and French key figures coming from various circles, who wished all to develop the cooperation between the two countries. From the beginning, the association has been placed under the patronage of the French and Russian Presidents, Jacques Chirac and Vladimir Putin. The Association « French-Russian Dialog » is co-chaired since 2012 by Thierry Mariani and Vladimir Yakunin. Nowadays it is a favored communication tool between political, economical and cultural circles from both countries.
Our task is to contribute to intensify the strategic relationship and the favored partnership between France and Russia by stimulating an efficient dialog as well at official level as in business circles and civil societies.
