Last week the Community of Lipovan Russians in Romania (CRLR) celebrated the 25th anniversary of its establishment. In fact, these Old Believers fled to the territory of Moldova and Wallachia (today part of Romania) in the late 17th century. Under the reign of Nicolae Ceaușescu they were pressured to assimilate, and many forgot their native language. However, during the past several decades, after acquiring official status as a minority, the Lipovans have been experiencing a national and cultural revival. We spoke about this re-emergence with Miron Ignat, head of the Community of Lipovan Russians and a member of the parliament of...
