German television shows Russian Christmas traditions


In the beginning of December, Bavarian television contacted Russian Center of Nuremberg's Russian-German Cultural Center with an unusual request to tell about Russian Christmas traditions. The Centre staff was pleased to accept it. The representatives of German television were so interested with Christmas kutia (traditional grain dish), that they decided to bring this information to broad masses, and all of this escalated into a real TV project.

At the request of the television, Irina Fixel and Elena Barder organized the filming at the simple kitchen, and acquainted themselves in advance with the historical and culinary information about kutia. The preparation was immense, and the filming lasted for more than 3 hours. Although only 3 minutes of the footage got into the festive TV program, it is common for television format.

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.
