Astana hosts International Victory Forum


International Victory Forum titled Great Victory through Unity: Courage of the Front and Fortitude of the Rear started its work in Astana, TASS informs. Forum organizers invited the state authorities from Kazakhstan and Russia, scientists, historians, experts, creative workers from the CIS and Baltic countries as well as public activists and representatives of the veteran organizations.

Presidents of Russia and Kazakhstan sent greeting telegrams to the forum organizers. Nursultan Nazarbayev marked the invaluable contribution of the Republic into the Great Victory. He has expressed hope that the present generation is aware of all trials the veterans went through for the sake of free and peaceful life of future generations on their own land. 

The Kazakhstan President is sure that the Forum “will reinforce friendship and mutual understanding at the CIS territory.”

Vladimir Putin, in his turn, has underlined that traditional forums organized right before the Victory Day are important consolidating events for the countries. He has been satisfied that the geography of the forums is extending and organizers are taking efforts to preserve the historical truth about WWII to pass it to generations to come.

International forums have been conducted since 2010. They are called for keeping memory of WW2 historical event that unites the peoples of the former Soviet Union. Last year, the forum took place in Minsk.

As the Russkiy Mir reported, residents of Papua New Guinea addressed the head of the Russian Orthodox Church with a collective petition to establish an Orthodox mission in their country. This proposal was put forward after Kirill Shrakbul, a priest and head of the ROC mission in Taiwan, had visited Papua New Guinea.
On September 1, millions of children in Russia went to school. And millions of their peers in Ukraine also went to schools. Everything seems to be the same: flowers, bows, well-dressed children, excited parents... And yet there is a difference and a very significant one: children in Russia go to schools to study in their native language. However, starting with this academic year, hundreds of thousands of Russian-speaking children no longer have this opportunity in Ukraine.
