Russian Center in Sofia celebrates its 10th anniversary


The 10th anniversary of the Russian Center was celebrated in Sofia. The center was opened on November 18, 2011. Students to Russian language courses and their teacher, librarians from the Capital Library and friends of the center  took part in the celebrations. They were invited to answer the following question: "What is the Russian Center for you?"

Here's what they said:

"Russia, love, friends ..."

''The Russian Center in the Capital Library is a wonderful place! It is an inexhaustible source of happy emotions, knowledge and culture. "

"I wish the Center success as a source of the great Russian culture and truth about Russia today!"

''The center of the Russian world is an island of spirituality and human affection! Thanks!".

“I am from Bulgaria, but I have been teaching Russian all my life. Teaching Russian in Bulgaria, especially in the 90s, was very difficult. Many colleagues left the profession, others were retrained. I am glad that almost at the end of this difficult experience I ended up in the Russian Center. Here, I met people with an excellent attitude to the Russian language, people with whom it is very pleasant both to work and to communicate with! Thanks for everything, friends! "

Since the beginning of the unrest in Kazakhstan, some media and Telegram channels have speculated about the threat to Russians living in the Republic. Allegedly, the introduction of CSTO forces would put them in danger due to the rise of Kazakh nationalism. Izvestia talked to Russians living in the country to find out how the January events had affected their relations with Kazakhs. Interviewees claimed that the introduction of CSTO peacekeepers had no effect on interethnic dialogue because the Russians living in the Republic were not associated with Russia - they were locals. However, according to Izvestia's interlocutors, there is still intolerance at the mundane level.
