BRATISLAVA, January 28. /TASS/. The Slovakian government "plans to contribute as much as it can to development of cultural ties with Russia," State Secretary of the Slovakian Ministry of Culture Ivan Secik told TASS on Thursday.
"The government of the republic fully supports expansion of cultural ties with Russia," Secik stressed. "The last years were the most effective phase of cooperation between our countries in this sphere over the last two decades. We are successfully implementing programs of further intensifying this cooperation together with Russian partners," he added.
Russian theatres, musical groups and cultural figures often visit Slovakia, he noted. Art and photo exhibitions from Russia are often held in Slovakia. "We are also glad that we finally managed to bring Slovak culture and art back to the attention of the Russian public. Slovak Film Week was successfully held in Russia. Slovak opera soloists performed in St. Petersburg Philharmonic last autumn. Ballet troupe of State Theatre Kosice was met with ovations in the Nikita Gates Theatre in Moscow," Secik said.
"The 15th anniversary of the Russian Center of Science and Culture (RCSC) is being celebrated in Slovakia now," the secretary said. "This is the most important stronghold of Russian culture in the republic. RCSC employees are true enthusiasts that greatly contribute to development of cultural exchanges between the two countries," Secik concluded.
