The days of the Russian language took place in two Japanese universities, REGNUM reports. The philologists of the North-Eastern Federal University (NEFU) organized the events for the students from Sapporo and Kansai universities

According to Svetlana Petrova, who heads the department of Russian as a foreign language, such events help to increase interest in learning Russian. She was convinced that students from abroad would find out more about Russia and its regions.

Russia sparks a lot of interest among young Japanese people, who are enthusiastically immersed in the Russian language. They read books of Russian classics and know well the music of Viktor Tsoi. 

Russkiy Mir reported earlier that Japan was interested in developing the ties with Russian universities. This issue was discussed during a meeting with the new Consul General of Japan in Khabarovsk Masanori Fukushima, which took place at the Northeastern Federal University.

According to the diplomat, it is worth expanding student exchanges between Japanese universities and universities in Yakutsk. At the moment, three students from Japan are studying at NEFU. Russkiy Mir allocated funds for the internship of NEFU employees in Japan.

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.
