The Congress of Russian Americans has awarded scholarships to young members of the organization. The scholarships are traditionally given to young activists entering universities and colleges in the United States and other countries, the Russian America newspaper reports.

This year, two 18-year-old members of the organization, Lisabella Nadelson and Alexander Vorobyov-Wilson, received scholarships from the Congress. They were also awarded diplomas and congratulatory letters for their work. Lisabella is studying at the Faculty of Medicine at the College of North Carolina, while Alexander became a student in the It Department at the Institute of Fine Mechanics and Optics in St. Petersburg.

It is noted that both scholarship holders took part in many cultural events aimed at popularizing Russian culture. Alexander Vorobyov-Wilson was a soloist of the children's Cossack ensemble, while Lisabella was engaged in vocals and choreography.

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.
