A cycle of conferences and seminars devoted to the analysis and solution of problems that arise for the people of Russian nationality living in the Baltic States. The cycle of conferences and seminars in 1990 was initiated by the Russian Culture Centre.

During the first conference the decision was made to organize the regional conferences in the capitals of the Baltic States. The main organisers of the conferences were the 3 already mentioned  public and cultural unions which are close in their spirits, objectives and tasks. The conferences of 1991 and 1998 took place in Tallinn, in 1997 in Riga. An international colloquium ''Russian National Minorities in the Baltic States'' was organized in Germany in1996.  The 9th ''Russians of the Baltics'' seminar took place at the House of National Minorities in Vilnius in 2009.
