On April 21, the Center of the Uzbek Language and Culture was opened at MSLU. The Center is aimed at promoting the Uzbek language, culture and national traditions and it has become the 23rd cross-cultural center of the Moscow State Linguistic University and the first center of Uzbek culture in Moscow.
The idea of the Center of the Uzbek Language and Culture was embodied as a result of strong humanitarian ties between Russia and the Republic of Uzbekistan, as well as the close cooperation of the Embassy of the Republic of Uzbekistan with MSLU, the principle institution providing study of languages ​​and cultures of the CIS countries.
The opening ceremony was attended by the Rector of the Moscow State Linguistic University Irina Kraeva, Ambassador of Uzbekistan Botirzhon Asadov, Deputy Chairman of the CIS Executive Committee Ilkhom Nematov, representatives of the Uzbek diasporas in the Murmansk and Ryazan Oblasts, scientists, public figures, students of the Moscow branch of the World Association of Youth of Uzbekistan, as well as journalists.
Students from Uzbekistan and students from Russia studying the Uzbek language arranged a concert for the guests with folk dances, music and songs. The opening ceremony also included a presentation of two books, “Anthology of Uzbek Poetry” and “Manuscripts of Alisher Navoiy (on the Occasion of the 580th Anniversary of the Great Poet)”, published in Russia. The Embassy of Uzbekistan donated about 50 books in the Uzbek language to the new MSLU Center.
