The Committee on the Educational Activities of Russian Schools and Russian Language Teachers was created in Australia. The decision on its formation was made at a country conference of Russian compatriots, held in Gold Coast in December. The main goal of the committee is to unite teachers of Russian schools, improve the quality of education, taking into account modern pedagogical trends, and work out additional measures to promote Russian language in Australia, the website of the Council of Russian Compatriots in Australia informs.

According to teachers, the need to create a special authority that would coordinate the interaction between Russian schools is long overdue. The aim of the Committee is to combine the experience of linguists, methodologists and teachers of Russian schools in Australia to solve the problems of modern teaching in the new informational and educational field.

The management of the Committee and specialists of Russian schools will achieve this goal through international competitions, seminars and conferences. The Committee plans to seek relief from Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The new structure has already begun its work. A list of activities for the current year has been compiled, among which are the international scientific conference for children in Russian and the Teacher of the Year competition.

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.
