The Park of Friendship between Russia and Lebanon has opened in Ainab (western part of the country), according to the website of the Moscow Compatriot House. The RUDN University Alumni Association in Lebanon, the representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo and local authorities came up with a proposal to create it.

The head of the association, Galina Abbas, hopes that the park will become a popular recreation place for all Lebanese living nearby.

The park has a playground, a recreation area with tables and benches, and an art space for master classes and lectures. There is also a stadium near the park. The participants of the opening ceremony laid the friendship alley in the park.

The creators of the park followed the "zero waste" principle. Old tires, reels from electric cables, wooden pallets and other recyclable materials were used in the walking areas. Tables were painted in Khokhloma and Gzhel to resemble the Russian style. The power supply of the park is completely autonomous, it uses solar energy.

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.
