ДИАЛОГ (DIALOGUE) No. 1 (1980) – No. 3 (1981), Leningrad, was a journal that emerged out of the correspondence of its editors Kirill Butyrin and Sergei Stratanovsky. The journal treated problems of liberalism and democracy, religion, nationalism and culture. Issue No. 2 features the participation of Tatiana Goricheva, known for her leading role in the journal ТРИДЦАТЬ СЕМЬ (THIRTY-SEVEN) and the feminist collection ЖЕНЩИНА И РОССИЯ (WOMAN AND RUSSIA). This short-lived edition led to the more developed journal ОБВОДНЫЙ КАНАЛ (OBVODNYI CANAL). This copy of issue No. 2 comes from the Kirill Butyrin Collection (F. 5/1.1) at the Research Centre for East European Studies at Bremen University.
