JOHANNESBURG, December 22, 0:56 /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Foreign Ministry plans to launch a website for Russian compatriots throughout the world after the New Year holidays, deputy director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s department for the work with Russian compatriots Sergei Nikolayev said here on Saturday.
Nikolayev participated in the 7th regional conference of Russian compatriots from the countries of Africa and the Middle East in the South African city of Johannesburg.
“In January we plan to launch an Internet resource of the World Coordination Council of Russian Compatriots in the trial mode and it will begin working by April,” he noted. In his words, the content of the website will cost 100,000 dollars annually. The project aims to help develop cultural and language heritage and inform Russian compatriots, who are frequently disunited, do not have any premises for meetings and do not have enough money to develop their own web resources.
At the round-table meeting deputy chairman of the department of church external affairs of the Moscow Patriarchate Archimandrite Filaret named the information activity as one of the most important trends in the work with Russian compatriots.
The round-table meetings “help consolidate the capabilities and forces in the information field, legal protection, economic support and education.
These problems should be settled not only at state or church level. They can be resolved only if all parties concerned pool their efforts. Russian compatriots are keenly interested in this,” he said.
