The teenage book club has been launched for young Russians living in Barcelona. Children and adolescents over 12 are invited to take part in it. The club will operate at the RusKniga store, according to the store's Facebook page.

The first meeting is scheduled for November 14. Participants will discuss their book preferences and choose a book for discussion at the next meeting.

The RusKniga store of Russian books opened in Barcelona a month ago. It offers books in Russian and languages ​​of peoples from the countries of the former Soviet Union for children and adults. The owner of the store, Elena, moved to Spain from Russia. The idea of ​​opening a store came to her after she faced difficulties in purchasing Russian children's books in Spain.

The project started with 20 books; now, there are over 3,000 different titles, which can be delivered across Spain, Portugal and Andorra.

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.
