Recently, we learned that it appears in Pavlodar in the north-east of Kazakhstan is a major center of Slavic culture. Community representing Slavic culture in Kazakhstan, with over 5000 people. Branches center of Slavic culture is also in the city of Aksu in 8 of the 10 districts.
The center has a chorus of Russian folk songs and a museum of the writer Anastasia Tsvetaeva, who has lived in Pavlodar years. The site slavcentr.kz collected rare and unique materials. Affects a variety of groups and projects that are carried out by participants. Even at first glance it seems that anyone can find a community of like, but at the same time will be part of the whole Slavic world.
Interestingly, the center recognized by UNESCO as a unique cultural object, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 2008, declared it the best among the related organizations of the CIS, as reported at the center. This community is supported well-known actors — Alex Buldakov, Yevgeny Mironov, Vladimir Konkin. Head of the Slavic cultural center is Tatiana's cousin — the sister of film director Vladimir Khotinenko, who is also a member.
Probably everyone knows who Nikolai Emelin. His song "Rus" and "covenant" is in most Slavic sites. We were surprised to learn that Nicholas himself is from the Cossack village in northern Pavlodar region. Of course, he is at the center of Slavic culture!
Now living outside of Russia, these people know the value of their culture, traditions and folk art. Know what it means to be part of one of the Slavic world, which in Russia, unfortunately, lost. Russian foreign united, that here, at home, for the most part absent. However, while there are such centers, we have the hope that all is not lost. Interest in our Slavic culture and the heritage back. We will return and multiply what we have been so unjustly forgotten and lost.
We must learn the same unity, the habit to stick together and defend common interests, and most importantly — to remember who we are. Otherwise we have no future, and we will replace the Chinese and immigrants from Central Asia.
Thank you, our distant friends from Pavlodar! We are with you.
