The Society for Co-operation in Russian and Soviet Studies (SCRSS) is a library and cultural centre, based in London, that promotes knowledge of the culture, language and history of Russia and the former Soviet Union (FSU). The Society is a Registered Charity No 1104012 and will celebrate its centenary in 2024.

The SCRSS Soviet Collections are a library and archive of the arts, humanities and social sciences of the Soviet Union (1917-91). See Library & Archive and Photo Library and visit our online catalogue launched in 2022.

We organise events and promote Russian language learning. We are actively involved with, and a founder member of, the Soviet War Memorial in London. We facilitate cultural contacts between the UK, Russia and the FSU. And we publish a journal, the SCRSS Digest.

Statement from the Trustees of the SCRSS

The Society for Co-operation in Russian and Soviet Studies, established in 1924, is an independent educational charity founded to promote knowledge of the arts, culture and history of the USSR (1917-1991). Its current activities and historic collections cover all fifteen republics of the former USSR.

To promote the Society's objectives of supporting cultural relations between the peoples of the UK and the current states of the former USSR, the Trustees of the Society call on parties in the conflict in Ukraine to end military confrontation, to address the causes of the war, and to adopt peaceful means to resolve political and cultural divisions.

The Trustees view with concern and disapproval the acceleration of sanctions in the civil and cultural spheres; such escalation undermines the activities of the Society and impairs the development of cordial relations between its associates.
