(en.rian.ru) Russia constructed its Expo pavilion for the first time in 30 years, rather than renting one from the host country. The sun-shaped pavilion comprises 12 white-and-gold towers symbolizing the 12 months, and occupies an area of 6,000 sq. m. It showcases Russia's recent scientific and economic development, as well as offers a diverse cultural program.
“Every three minutes another 50 visitors enter the Russian national pavilion, when only some 10 visitors enter the U.S. pavilion every five minutes,” the administration said.
Every third visitor of the Russian pavilion was a child.
The 2010 World Expo fair is to run from May 1 to October 31 under the motto "Better City - Better Life." Some 70 million visitors are expected to attend the event. The spokeswoman said leaders of all countries are invited to attend.
