The competition in the Russian language has been held at Le Quy Don University of Science and Technology, which operates in the capital of Vietnam. A tournament of this kind has taken place for the first time in a higher education institution, the Institute. Pushkin reports.

It was organized by the department of the Russian language. They came up with an unusual format of competition. In the first round, all participants answered test questions. After that the finalists competed in teams. They were offered creative contests and a task for the knowledge of Russian culture. Students sang songs of the war years and managed to convey the mood and meaning of the songs. They also recalled the struggle of the people of their country for freedom and independence.

Vietnamese folk songs translated into Russian and popular Russian pop songs were also performed during the competition. The participants were seriously preparing for the third contest, in which they had to answer questions about the Russian language, history and culture of Russia. Almost all the teams coped with the task correctly.

The honorary guests of the tournament were teachers of the The Pushkin State Russian Language Instituteinvited by the Vietnamese colleagues. They conducted practical exercises with students of the preparatory faculty and seminars for teachers.

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.
