Recently, the list of national pavilions that will be present at the opening of the Venice Biennale was published. This year, Russia is not on the list.

A representative of the Venice Biennale confirmed the information about Russia's absence from the exhibition in 2024 but did not comment on the reasons.

Geopolitics regularly impact the national pavilions, though Russia is the only country this year not to participate owing to military conflict. Israel, which also has a Giardini pavilion, is set to be represented by Ruth Patir, even as the war in Gaza persists.

Likewise, Ukraine, which is still embroiled in a bloody conflict with Russia, will also be at the Venice Biennale this year, represented by Katya Buchatska, Andrii Dostliev, Lia Dostlieva, Daniil Revkovskyi, Andrii Rachynskyi, and Oleksandr Burlaka.
