Calligraphy competition winners awarded in Milan


The staff of the Russian Center in Milan met with the Italian participants of the 7th International Calligraphy Competition dedicated to the Year of Science and Technology. During the meeting, the winners and participants were awarded certificates, books, Russkiy magazines and other prizes and gifts.

Parents of the students of the Harmony Russian Training Center noted the importance of holding such contests, as they motivate young people to write in Russian. While writing the famous Pushkin's lines "Oh, how many wonderful discoveries we have..." from Eugene Onegin, they learned a poem.

The staff of the Russian Center invited everyone to take part in the Book Week, which will begin on November 19.

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.
