Russian-speaking bilingual children between the ages of 8 and 16 living in Australia are invited to join the Mathematics Olympiad. This was reported by the Council of Russian Compatriots of Australia on its Facebook page.

The Australian Nut tournament kicks off a month later, on October 23. It was organized by the Mathematics in Russian without Borders pedagogical community with the assistance of the Committee of Russian Schools in Australia and the OREKH Russian educational center.

The Olympics will be held for the 4th time. The Young Mathematician Competition is popular not only in Australia, but also in other countries. It is aimed at the development of mathematical education, and also contributes to the preservation of the Russian language.

The organizers inform that all tasks are compiled taking into account the peculiarities of bilingual perception of the text. Schoolchildren can participate in the Olympiad both individually and as part of a team led by teachers.

The tournament is held in online, which will help children to do their work slowly, in a calm atmosphere. Applications are accepted until October 21.

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.
