- I am glad to welcome you to this wonderful spring festival! We hold it annually within the walls of our university and always get a lot of positive feedback. Navruz has already become a landmark event, which is brightly celebrated by our students from other countries, - said Anton Vladimirovich Akopyan, Vice-Rector for Youth Policy and Educational Activities.

Foreign students spoke about the traditions of the holiday, performed national songs and dances. The guests tasted the dishes of the Republic of Iraq, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. A wide variety of meat and tasty snacks were presented.

The guys all cooked it together. For us, an important rite is to cook with family or friends,” said a student from Bangladesh.

Also on this day, the guests of the event were able to see an exhibition of applied art.

of other peoples’ traditions,” shared Sadirzhanova Bonu, Chairman of the Youth
