Der Kulturrat der Deutschen aus Russland e.V. was founded in 1981. It set itself the goal to care for and preserve cultural traditions, to impart knowledge about the countries of origin and about their history by means of publications as well as, beyond this ethnic group, to bring to the public the special fate of the Germans from Russia/USSR and thereby make an important contribution to the care and preservation of the identity of this ethnic group.

The Kulturrat in regard to its goals and tasks is supported by the Landsmannschaft der Deutschen aus Russland and is embodied in the statutes of the Landsmannschaft.
