Scott Ritter’s second visit to Russia took him to the heart of Russian culture—Moscow and Saint Petersburg—during the New Year and Christmas season. Here Ritter probed deeper into the history and culture of Russia, especially the role played by the Orthodox Church in helping define Russian identity and spirituality—the Russian “soul.” The author undertook a separate journey on what he called “the Russian Road of Redemption,” an examination of life during wartime, which explored issues of war and peace while visiting Chechnya, Crimea, Novorossiya, and the Donbas. A second challenge coin was issued for this trip, which blended the thematic of the New Year and Christmas season with the overarching theme of waging peace—that each of us is an ambassador of peace whose mission can only be completed when we take the time to try and understand the sources of, and solutions to, conflict.

Date of the trip: December 27, 2023-January 20, 2024

Each coin is engraved with a unique serial number, acknowledging the fact that there is only a limited number of each coin in circulation. While the original intent of the Waging Peace Challenge Coin was to provide a representational token of appreciation from Scott Ritter to the Russian people he met while in Russia, the popularity of the concept was such that some of the coins have been made available for sale to the public, with the proceeds from the sale going to help fund the costs associated with the making of a three-part documentary film, Waging Peace, which covers the three journey’s undertaken by Scott Ritter in his search for the Russian soul and the “real” Russia. Each coin can be bought separately, or as a set.
