The Tomsk branch of the Youth Assembly of the Peoples of Russia will create a series of videos entitled “Hello, Russia!” The series is aimed at acquainting foreign students of Tomsk universities with the culture and traditions of the peoples of Russia. The project is supported by the administration of the Tomsk region.
According to the author of the series of videos, Elena Podaneva, hundreds of students from other countries enter the universities of the city every year; citizens of 93 states can be found within the walls of local universities. The authors expect the mini-films to help students understand the country they have come to and adapt more quickly.
Foreign students who have chosen Tomsk to get higher education will become not only spectators, but also participants in the issues. The first video, dedicated to the national cuisine of Avars, Buryats, Tatars and Russian Germans, featured students from Indonesia, Syria, Vietnam and Cote d'Ivoire. They tried the dishes of different nations, shared their inpressions and compared the dishes with the cuisine of their countries. For example, viewers were able to learn how Syrian cabbage rolls are prepared and what dish, similar to the Arabian shish-barak, one can try in Buryatia.
