A paper version of a Russian ABC-book for bilingual children has been published in the United States. The book entitled Mother’s Primer includes twenty lessons for teaching reading and four more lessons with texts for reading practice. 

It is developed for parents who would like to teach Russian to their children living in a different language environment. 

According to the authors of the primer, many parents were interested in the printed version of book, since not everyone is used to working with the electronic book.

The compilers of the primer promise that the work with it will only take 15 minutes a day. A 5-6 years old child will learn to read simple texts after working with it. 

The authors explain that they were once despaired to find a book like that when they wanted to teach their own grandchildren. All other primers were designed for children who spoke Russian well and were too difficult to understand for children who lived outside Russia and struggled to comprehend some linguistic constructions. 

Mother’s Primer ranges material from simple to complex without jumping over the steps. It has collected and systematized the best ways of learning to read.

Meet BRICS Art is an international project that brings together artists from Russia, Brazil, China, India, and South Africa. Their virtual exhibition was opened in January. In addition, the project participants will hold online discussions. For example, they will discuss how artists can participate in the design of the cities of the future for the BRICS countries. Anna Kurumchina, director of the Agency for Cultural and Science Diplomacy (Yekaterinburg) and the organizer of the exhibition, shared the details of the international project.
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.
