On June 6, the 225th anniversary of the birth of Alexander Pushkin, a solemn ceremony of laying flowers at the monument to Alexander Sergeevich took place.

The curator of the institute was Elmira Afanasyeva, chief researcher at the Laboratory of Philological Research, head of Pushkin projects. Elmira Maratovna congratulated everyone on the Day of the Russian Language and the 225th anniversary of the birth of Alexander Pushkin, calling the poet "an echo that conveys the spirit and soul of the language, the spirit and soul of the people.

Acting Vice-rector for Educational Work Elena Chernysheva made a congratulatory speech:

"These two holidays – the anniversary of Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin and the Day of the Russian Language – define our vocation, our ministry. Russian Russian students from many countries of the world study at the Pushkin Institute, which indicates an interest in the Russian language and Russian culture. People tend to learn Russian and communicate in it. Our institute proudly bears the name of the great poet, whose creative heritage is an integral part of Russian and world culture. I wish you to continue to preserve the good traditions of our Institute and the love of the Russian language in your hearts!", – wished Elena Nikolaevna.

After the official part, the students of the Pushkin Institute gracefully danced a waltz on the square in front of the university!

In addition, the children performed the poems "the suns of Russian poetry".
The international quartet – Ousmane Camara from Guinea, Chan Phuc Truong from Vietnam, Angela Vukovic from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Adelina Litvinenko from Russia – read the love message "K * (I remember a wonderful moment ...)".
The poems "Do I Wander along noisy streets" (Maria Yakhnis), "I loved you ..." (Anastasia Kupriyanova) and the elegy "Crazy Years of faded Fun" (Evgenia Talikina) were performed by students of the Faculty of Philology.

The musical part followed! Marco Gagsiola, a student of the Faculty of Teaching Russian as a foreign language from Mexico, sang a romance by M.I. Glinka to the poem of the same name by A.S. Pushkin "I remember a wonderful moment ...".

Then, a screening of a film based on the work of A.S. Pushkin "The Peasant Lady" took place in the creative workshop. Before the start of the session, the children were told about the history of the creation of the cycle "Belkin's Tale", immersing the audience in the atmosphere of the work.
