Today, the Nika TV studio hosted the annual meeting of the Ministry of Internal Policy and Mass Communications of the Kaluga Region. The work was attended by the First Deputy Secretary General, Head of the General Secretariat of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly, member of the Presidential Council for Interethnic Relations, Chairman of the Council of the Assembly of Peoples of Russia Svetlana Smirnova.

Svetlana Smirnova noted that working and friendly relations and good interaction have developed between the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly, the Assembly of the Peoples of Russia and the authorities of the Kaluga region. A branch of the Assembly of the Peoples of Russia is successfully operating in the region, various projects are being jointly implemented, representatives of various national and cultural associations take an active part in them.

In 2022, for the third time, a contest for the All-Russian Award «Pride of the Nation» for personal contribution to ethno-cultural development and strengthening the unity of the peoples of Russia will take place. Svetlana Smirnova expressed her hope that many representatives of the ethno-cultural community of the Kaluga region would take part in the contest.

This year, the Assembly of Peoples of Russia launches a new contest "Leader of People's Diplomacy". Svetlana Smirnova noted that the Kaluga region has excellent projects for cooperation with non-governmental organizations from other countries.

As part of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly activity, the project "Geneva Readings" was created.

At the UN, we present the potential of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation. For example, last year the Samara and Sverdlovsk regions took part in the work. I think that the Kaluga region also has the opportunity to successfully present its potential at the UN. You have what to show the whole world. Therefore, we invite you to take part in the Geneva Readings,” said Svetlana Smirnova.
