Over 600 readers and singers from Russia and China took part in the # PUSHKIN2020 competition, dedicated to the birthday of the Russian poet. They performed Pushkin's works in two languages, reports TV BRICS reports.

The competition is timed to the Day of the Russian language. Participants were asked to record a video of them reading Pushkin’s poems or a vocal piece to the poet's poems.

The competition is meant to popularize the legacy of the Russian poet among young people. Participation is free, there is no age restrictions. The organizers intend to encourage mutual interest in the cultures of China and Russia; they have prepared prizes for those who will perform Pushkin’s work better than others in a foreign language - Russian and Chinese.

Experts noted that such joint projects allow residents of the two countries to stick together in difficult times, to better understand each other. The winners of the contest are promised to be announced on June 6, on the Day of the Russian Language.
