I paid the first official visit by a British Minister for the Arts to the Soviet Union on 6–12 June. I was warmly welcomed and had the opportunity for a wide-ranging exchange of views with the Soviet Minister of Culture, Mr. Zakharov. I was also able to visit a variety of museums and cultural events in Moscow, Tbilisi and Leningrad.
