A Call for Help and A Petition to Putin not to Allow the Destruction of the Roerich Museum in Moscow

I just came across a petition on addressed to Mr. Vladimir V. Putin, the President of the Russian Federation, with an appeal to prevent the destruction of the non-governmental Museum named after Nicholas Roerich and to provide assistance to the Museum.

I immediately signed this petition. I deeply admire the work of Nicholas Roerich and I have published a number of blog-posts about him, also about the new museum.

The Ministry of Culture of Russia headed by Mr. V. R. Medinsky is aiming at taking away from the ICR the Roerichs heritage, thus destroying the non-governmental Museum. You find more details on the the page of with the appeal. On the website of the museum, there is also a call for help and international protection.

If you also like the beautiful art of Nicholas Roerich, you might also sign the petition and disseminate it among your friends and acquaintances, as a little contribution to the preservation of the museum, for the culture of Russia and the whole world.

    We have three Nicholas Roerich prints and consider of cultural value to maintain this special museum. His work, and that of his wife, have influenced many so very positively. Please safeguard this treasure.
    We live in the United States, however, I also have Australian friends who value this work.

    Oh no!! Why would anyone want to destroy this precious national treasure of two of Russia’s greatest countrymen —a great family & all that they have contributed to global peace & culture?

    Nicholas & Helena Roerich were my life long mentors & I was a close friend of Dr. Svetoslav & Devika Rani Roerich for over 22 years. Please preserve & protect this priceless treasure trove which truly belongs to all humankind & future generations.

    Through their eyes we have glimpsed the greatness of Russia –the “Motherland” they spoke & wrote of in such glowing visionary terms. Sincerely, SaiVahni (Ashtar-Athena Sheran) USA
