Vietnamese students host cultural event in Russia

Moscow, April 11 (VNA) – Vietnamese students in Russia hosted a cultural event, called “Hello Vietnam”, to promote their country’s landscapes and people among international friends at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO).

An exhibition was placed at the main entrance of MGIMO, featuring photos on Vietnamese people, landscapes and cuisines, alongside a fair where visitors could have a look at and purchase handicrafts and signature products of Vietnam, for example, tea, coffee, rattan and bamboo works, embroidery, and other souvenirs.

A workshop was also organised as part of the event, focusing on Vietnam’s history and public holidays, the Vietnam-Russia relations and its legal framework as well as a review of the recent visit of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

Vietnamese students shared the stage with their Russian peers in a concert kicked off by a fashion show of Vietnam’s traditional dress (ao dai).

The Russian students sang “Doan ve quoc quan” in Vietnamese and danced with Vietnam’s “Di cay” folk song playing in the background.

The event was intended to mark the 65 th anniversary of the diplomatic ties between Vietnam and Russia.
