Descendant of Alexander Pushkin, U.S. citizen Kenneth A. Pushkin (on photo), founder of “Pushkin Heritage” non-commercial U.S. association handed two checks with a total value of $20,000 to the Institute of Russian Literature (Pushkin House) for equipping the new storage facility of A.S. Pushkin’s personal library and for the completion of restoration of the Hannibal family mansion in Mikhailovskoye Reserve Museum. Members of the association’s Council of Trustees arrived in St. Petersburg together with Kenneth. The association, created in 1997, aims at “spreading knowledge about the personality and work of A.S.
