Church of Scientology Moscow Introduces Legislators and Community Leaders to the Legacy of L. Ron Hubbard

At a round table at the Church of Scientology Moscow May 29 Church staff introduced legislators, community and civic leaders to the life and work of Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard through the pages of a new 16-volume biographical encyclopedia.

The L. Ron Hubbard Series, released March 13, 2012, provides the first definitive, in-depth account of Mr. Hubbard. In total, the work stands at more than 3,600 pages and chronicles Mr. Hubbard’s extraordinary life and enduring legacy as drawn from his extensive personal archives, including never before published correspondence, journals and essays.

Church of Scientology Moscow Public Relations Director Natalia Alexeeva presented an overview of the volumes, and guests watched a video presentation that detailed the project done to compile the volumes and restore the original photographs they feature.

Guests were then given the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the encyclopedia.

Mr. Sergey Komkov, Vice-President of the International Academy of Spiritual Unity and Cooperation and Vice-President of All-Russia Foundation of Education, said, “The book enables the reader to delve into the life of this great man, and educate himself on L. Ron Hubbard’s greatest discoveries, the fruits of which will continue to be enjoyed by future generations.”

Writer, journalist and literary critic Mrs. Lyudmila Avdeeva said, “The unique, multi-volume publication is a triumphant accomplishment. It sheds light on the life and work of L. Ron Hubbard, an outstanding scientist, researcher and creative genius. The spiritual and practical heritage of L. Ron Hubbard is so enriching, anyone, regardless of age, profession or belief, will benefit from this information.”

Since its grand opening February 26, 2011, the Church of Scientology of Moscow has held weekly open houses, round tables, symposia, forums and community events to make the practical solutions of the Scientology religion broadly available and to coordinate with other groups and leaders who are working to uplift the culture.

The new Church stands in the city’s central Garden Ring, just one mile from Red Square. The Church Public Information Center contains more than 500 information videos covering the beliefs and practices of the Scientology religion and the life and legacy of L. Ron Hubbard. Visitors are welcome to take self-guided tours any day of the week and return as often as they like.
