June 6 is Russian Language Day, established to promote the Russian language throughout the world and to celebrate its beauty and diversity. The date is the birthday of the Russian poet A.S. Pushkin, who wrote about the beauty of the language.
As part of the program to support and develop multilingualism, cultural diversity, and maintain the equality of all six official languages of the UN (English, Arabic, Spanish, Chinese, Russian and French), the UN celebrates the Day of the Russian Language.
Every year on this day, various events and activities are organized in order to celebrate the Russian language. These may include cultural events, concerts, lectures, exhibitions, cuisines, films and more. This is a great opportunity for people to learn more about the Russian language and to celebrate its rich history and culture.
