Welcome to our website.
It is a demanding, but honorable and interesting challenge to represent Russian interests in the provinces of Western, Eastern and Northern Cape.
Today Russia and South Africa face a variety of opportunities to expand cooperation in the fields of trade and investment, science and innovation, education, sports, art and culture.
Our task is to facilitate this cooperation within the boundaries of our consular district.
It is our duty and our priority to assist our compatriots who live in the Cape provinces or visit the consular district as well as to advocate their rightful interests.
On this website you will find information on the services that we provide, news of different events and useful contact details.
We hope to receive your support and constructive suggestions.
Good luck and all the best to the visitors of our website.
