CHISINAU, September 14 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian Days of Culture will take place in Moldova after a two-year break, Moldovan Culture Minister Boris Focsa said.
Speaking at a joint press conference with Russian Ambassador to Moldova Valery Kuzmin on Wednesday, Foksa said such events had not been held due to economic and political problems that the republic faced.
Ahead of the Russian Days of Culture the ministries of both countries signed a treaty of cooperation. “I’d like to express my deep gratitude for signing the treaty. The Moldovan society missed its favourite artists. Within the events the Russian Film Week will take place. We are also planning to show modern movies of Russian directors,” Kuzmin said.
He noted that the events would be held in Chisinau, as well as in Beltsy, Comrat and in Tiraspol. Next year the Moldova Days of Culture will be held in Russia, Kuzmin added.
“Cultural cooperation between Russia and Moldova develops permanently. For a long time our people lived in one state. Thousands of mixed families live both in Russia and in Moldova,” the Russian ambassador stressed.
