The second session of the International Summer Russian Language Courses works at the Pushkin State Russian Language Institute. This is the most numerous one. Among its participants are two hundred people, including students from Austria, France, Portugal, Germany, Spain and other countries. A total of about forty countries are represented.

According to the organizers, their level of proficiency in Russian is very different. People who are just discovering all the richness of Russian language come to the courses. Together with them are those who seek to improve their knowledge. Among the students of the summer school there are many of those who need to speak Russian for professional activities. But there are also those who study Russian for the soul.

Guests will also be invited to classes where they will acquaint themselves with Russian literature and cultural traditions.

The Institute promised that the courses would be not only useful in terms of language, but also interesting and creative.

Large-scale cultural program is planned with a special course on Russian folk dances, meetings in music rooms and a cinema club.

The final point of the summer courses is traditionally a festive concert. Students independently prepare creative issues dedicated to Russia, but taking into account the national peculiarities of the countries which they came from.

The Institute traditionally organizes advanced training courses for Russian teachers from abroad. This year, teachers from Armenia, India, Croatia, Germany and Bulgaria arrived in Moscow.

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.
