ULAD-UDE, November 21. /TASS/. In the summer of 2017, the Republic of Buryatia will host the second group of Dagestani kids whose parents - police officers - were killed in the line of duty, the press service of Buryatia Senator Arnold Tulokhonov said on Monday.
“Senators Anrold Tulokhonov and Alexander Varfolomeyev signed the relevant agreement with Buryatia’s Interior Minister Oleg Kudinov during his working trip to Dagestan, where a Buryatian composite police detachment is deployed. The detachment has been participating in counter-terrorism operations in the North Caucasus for many years,” the press service noted.
Besides that, the senator noted that a 10-day festival of Buryatian Culture in Dagestan and Dagestani culture in Buryatia would be arranged.
This past summer, 19 teenagers from Dagestan spent their vacation at the Baikal Waves children health center from July 11 to 28. “Our kids made great friends with the Buryatian children, they taught each other to dance lezginka and yekhor national dances,” head of the Dagestani kids’ group, and Senior Youth Liaison Officer Khurizat Isayeva said.
The idea to bring Dagestani kids to Buryatia on vacation had come to the two republic’s authorities last November. “The kids got some rich experience in building relationships, it will help them in the future and bolster friendly ties between Dagestan and Buryatia,” Senior Youth Liaison Officer of the Caspian Police Abakar Saifullayev noted.
