Uruguayan Independence Day

On July 18, the Embassy of Uruguay in Moscow celebrated 183 years of Uruguayan independence with a reception. The ambassador and his wife, Nubia Pirone, received Russian politicians and public figures along with heads of diplomatic missions at their residence. Known as “Shekhtel House,” the residence was built by architect Fyodor Shekhtel for his family in 1896 and today is listed in the Heritage of Russia. Guests were delighted by Tannat, the iconic wine of Uruguay, and had the opportunity to taste traditional “empanadas” and mini steak canapés made with Uruguayan beef – the black label of beef – while admiring the beautiful Uruguayan paintings and sculptures exhibited at the ambassadorial residence.
