To present his collection of Russian  works of art of which the Faberge eggs will be the centerpiece,  Vekselberg has created a cultural foundation, the Link of Times, to look after his collection of Russian cultural artifacts

While Vekselberg’s Link of Times foundation will use the Schouvalovsky Palace as their home base, they will also form part of a travelling exhibition, with the aim of displaying the collection  not only in the principal Russian cities but also in the outlying parts of the  vast country.
