On November 19, 2021 Pierre Malinowski, President of the Foundation for the Development of Russian-French Historical Initiatives, met François d'Agay in Agay. He is Antoine de Saint-Exupery's nephew and veteran of World War II. He was very close to his uncle and was the prototype of the Little Prince's character. It was an incredible meeting. François D'Agay also signed the 1976 Russian edition of The Little Prince book for President Vladimir Putin.
