American Center

The Moscow American Center is Russia’s flagship public diplomacy platform for engaging Russian citizens. Since 1993, the Center has served as a dynamic space that encourages dialogue and inspires collaboration based on shared Russian and U.S. values. Offering a wide array of cultural and educational programs, the Center strives to increase people-to-people engagement by instilling good will and deepening mutual understanding between the United States and the Russian Federation.

The American Center is now located at the U.S. Embassy and our enthusiastic and experienced staff will help you find information about the United States and guide you through our collection of English-language print and eBooks,  magazines as well as online databases.
