Rector of KSMU, deputy of the Kursk Regional Duma Viktor Anatolyevich Lazarenko became an honored guest at the festival of folk traditions in the Kshensky village of Sovetsky district.

The event took place within the framework of the XVIII Interregional Festival of Folk and Artistic Creativity, dedicated to the Day of Slavic Written Language and Culture and the memory of the people’s artist Vyacheslav Mikhailovich Klykov. This holiday is associated with the names of the Holy Equal-to-the-Apostles brothers Cyril and Methodius – Slavic educators, creators of the Slavic alphabet, preachers of Christianity, the first translators of liturgical books from Greek into Slavic.

The holiday brought together talented people in love with the Russia-specific traditions from all over the region. Vocalists and ensembles of the Sovetsky District, artists of Kursk Regional Philharmonia delighted the audience with musical performances, and folk craftsmen – masters of the arts and crafts exhibition “City of Craftsmen” – with items made of clay, wood and straw.
