It was he, who was at the root of the growing popularity of Chinese national culture among people of Russia. To prove it, let’s remember 2019 year, more than 20 big cultural events dedicated to China were held in Moscow.

On July 2019 he planted a tree in honor of the day of the 70th anniversary of Russia-China diplomatic relationship establishment.
On May 2019 Mr. Li Hui, Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of the People's Republic of China in Russian Federation was awarded the Order of Friendship by the President of Russian Federation Putin V.V. for efforts to build friendship and cooperation between nations and fruitful co-work on convergence and enrichment of national cultures.
