The Multicultural character of the Russian Federation is not reflected in the history education which has a strong Russocentric approach. History education provides no answers or understanding for the multicultural society in Russia, neither for the ethnic conflicts and tensions at hand. In this context, the EuroClio-MATRA project “Mosaic of Cultures” led to the publication of both a student book and a teacher book. It contains innovative and multicultural material with pedagogical and didactical recommendations and is ready to use for Russian classroom practice.
