The birthday of Alexander Pushkin was celebrated by compatriots living in Malaysia. They prepared a play based on one of the most famous works of the great poet - The Tale of Tsar Saltan. Due to restrictions against the spread of coronavirus infection, the play was screened on Zoom.

The play was put on stage by the International Association of Russian-speaking Compatriots in Malaysia and the Rossotrudnichestvo representative office in Kuala Lumpur. Pupils of the school operating at the embassy of the Russian Federation took to the stage.

Young actors approached this unusual production very responsibly and creatively, perfectly learned their lines, and created unusual online costumes using computer programs.

Among the spectators were compatriots not only from Malaysia, but also from Morocco, Palestine and Jordan. An unusual performance became a real holiday of the Russian Language Day for children and adults.

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.
