On May 9, Ulyanovsk UNESCO City of Literature in cooperation with the city Department of Culture and Ulyanovsk State University hosted a creative event where students from other countries studying in Ulyanovsk read poetry.
In the square near the former Rassvet cinema, young people from India and Egypt recited poems in Russian as well as student’s native languages. The participants read poems “Courage” by Anna Akhmatova, “Wait for me” by Konstantin Simonov, “In the dugout” by Alexei Surkov. Students from India in national sari costumes introduced Ulyanovsk to poetry in Tamil, which speaks of love for nature, father's home, and people. The performances of all the participants were warmly received by the visitors of the site - the guests of the holiday applauded the speakers with pleasure, emphasizing the value of peace and happiness.
Such joint activities strengthen relations between peoples.
«The Great Victory Day is one of the most important holidays for our country. It is gratifying that students from other countries celebrate May 9 with us. It is extremely important to share national traditions with each other, as well as the beauty of poetry dedicated to peace and harmony», - said Elena Toporkova, the head of the Department of Culture and Leisure of the Population of Ulyanovsk.
