German-Russian cooperation is supported on different ways. One of the initiative is the Petersburger Dialog. It was initiated by the German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder and Russian president Wladimir Putin 2001 and it works till now. Since 2014 it is more and more criticized because of its political dependence.The Petersburger Dialog consists of workgroups. Sometimes they invite to their meetings representatives of other nations.
So I took part on the workshop of the workgroups dealing with the future cooperation and media on the topic “How identity forming was the 20th century for the 21th century?” / “Wie identitätsstiftend ist das 20. für das 21. Jahrhundert?” in Hamburg, 10-12 June 2010.
