«Dialogue of Cultures - United World» International Public Charity Fund has installed 14 busts of Lev Gumilyov.Lev Gumilyov (1912-1992) was a Soviet historian, ethnologist, archaeologist, orientalist, writer, translator and outstanding scientist who developed a theory of passionarity which explains the development of peoples and ethnic groups through considering historical processes from the point of view of natural science. It is impossible to imagine modern ethnology without the elements of Gumilyov's theory. Gumilyov’s work is pierced with the idea that any ethnic group maintains respect for the environment and landscape. Each individual has freedom of choice, but pays with his/her life for every mistake. Sustainability is the hallmark of Gumilyov’s scientific works.
