As part of its initiative to facilitate dialogues between different communities and foster amity, the Russian Centre of Culture in Kolkata is organising an all-faith meets here.
Vice-Consul and Head of the Cultural Department, Consulate General of the Russian Federation in Kolkata, Yuri V Dubovoy told PTI, "We believe holding dialogue between different religious groups is very important to know each other's points."
The Russian Centre of Culture called the first such all-faith meeting here at Gorky Sadan yesterday.
Asked why the Russian Centre of Culture was holding such meets, Dubovoy said, "Russia is a multi-religious, multi-cultural society like India. We have some regions in our country where Buddhists, Muslims are majority. In this way, we share many things common with India."
The Russian Centre of Culture will hold similar meetings in future, the Vice-consul said.
