Thank you for this video. I remember Nancy Reagan giving a tour of the White House to Raisa Gorbachev in 1987. It was the first time I saw her on TV. 



We love Ludmilla’s lectures whether on board the Volga Dream or more recently on the web. So informative. We look forward to our next voyage in due course on the Volga Dream to hear more from Ludmilla.
