Historically, relations between the Czechs and Russia have usually been troubled. But a young Russian wants to help his countrymen put down roots in Prague.
Igor Rubinovich belongs to a new generation of Russians who are turning their backs on the oligarch-dominated economy and lack of political transparency back home. They want to build their future elsewhere, and thousands of them now live in Prague. Igor has developed a kind of expat Facebook for them; "Klub Pragmatiki" is now helping Russians in Prague to network offline as well.
