A festival included in the international Russian Seasons cultural project has taken place in Berlin, the Rossotrudnichestvo reports on its website. The organizers chose a quote from Alexander Pushkin's poem "Poet" as its name - "The divine verb will touch sensitive hearing ...". The purpose of the event was the promotion of Russian classical literature among children living in Germany.

About a hundred people took part in the competition. For two days, young talents read poems and prose by the greatest Russian poets and prominent Russian writers. Viewers were lucky to listen to not only classical authors for such events - Pushkin, Lermontov, Tvardovsky, Marshak, Gogol, but also to those not so famous among children - Vysotsky, Varlamova, Dyadin, Sinyavsky and others. 

The event was attended by the Department of Public and External Relations of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug, the Department of Culture of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug, the Surgut Music and Drama Theater and the Rossotrudnichestvo representative office in Germany.

The results of the competition will be announced and all festival participants awarded on September 29, at the season-closing performance of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Russkiy Mir reported that Ivan Krylov’s 250th birthday was celebrated in Munich in mid-summer. Krylov’s fables and musical works by contemporaries of the poet were performed at the festival. The organizer of the evening was the Mir center of Russian culture.

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.
