UNIC which was joined in this project by the Moscow UNESCO Center wanted to place the event in the context of the UN "Alliance of civilizations" initiative. The main idea was to use the exhibition as an occasion to take up the Russian history and culture and to draw a parallel with destinies of other countries and peoples. UNIC wanted to stress the UN approaches to the myth of the "clash of civilizations" and to counter this trend by establishing a framework of mutual respect between human communities and cultures.

During this event, the director of UNIC Moscow Alexandre Gorelik described the "Alliance of civilizations" initiative and stressed the UN's conviction that ignorance and misconceptions are not only disappointing, but dangerous since they often nourish extremism. Mr. Gorelic quoting the Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon reminded the necessity to reassert the truth that diversity was a virtue, not a threat which should be seen as the essence of human condition and the driver for human process. The artist Mr. Smirnov when presenting his work claimed that Solovki was a unique place which was transforming and purifying the human soul". Several other guests praised as well the exhibit, highlighting the spiritual, environmental and cultural aspects of Solovki. (Unknown author. News from UNIC Moscow.
