On Russia Day, immediately after completing negotiations with Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was in no hurry to leave the Foreign Ministry mansion in Spiridonovka. He had another important meeting planned: with the orphans of Mariupol.

In the Bogayevsky room, two schoolchildren were waiting for Lavrov to give them their gift: a unique lamp.

Alexander and Alexey Ivlev were born and lived in Mariupol. My father worked as an engineer, my mother as an economist… March 8, 2022. On that day, the children’s parents died when they were attacked by the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

The brothers hid with their grandparents in the basement of the house in very difficult conditions. They helped them with the whole world. But soon my grandfather died. After the liberation of the city, the children were transported to Moscow, where they entered the Russian Foreign Ministry boarding school.

The oldest, Alejandro, is 16 years old. Graduated from ninth grade with honors. He is interested in technology, he loves to invent and design. The youngest, Alexey, is 10 years old.

– They say you want to be a diplomat? Does such a thing exist? – Lavrov asked Alexei.

“Yes, I do,” the boy responded and put his hands in his pockets out of embarrassment.

– Then take your hands out of your pockets. Good! – Lavrov gave the first advice to the future diplomat.

Alexander independently developed the design of the lamp and assembled it together with Alexey.

“I am very glad that our ministry was able to participate in supporting the brothers who, as I was told at our boarding school, study only with A and B,” Lavrov said when accepting the gift.

“Our path to Russia was difficult and tragic. But they did not abandon us… Thank you for participating in our destiny,” Alexander said.

– There was, as we remember, Ilyich’s light bulb. Now here is the light bulb of Alejandro and Alexei,” the minister joked.

Lavrov said that Foreign Ministry offices have already been opened in the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics. “Zaporozhye and the Kherson region are next… I plan, I hope in the very near future, to visit there and talk to the guys who work in the representative offices of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. And, of course, communicating with the people on the front lines,” he said.
