Nizhny Novgorod region marks Mother's Day

 

The Nizhny Novgorod region marked Mother's Day by holding an event titled  "Nizhny Novgorod Region - Our Common Home." Women of various nationalities were invited to take part in the event.

By existing international standards, the Nizhny Novgorod region is a typical mono-ethnic entity, presumably populated by Russian people (94 percent). At the same time, the region is home to more than a hundred of various nationalities and ethnic groups. Basic, or indigenous nationalities of the Nizhny Novgorod region, are Russian, Tatar, Mordovian, Chuvash and Mari peoples. There are areas densely populated by representatives of indigenous peoples.

Guests of the event "Nizhny Novgorod Region - Our Common Home" represented  Armenian, Tajik, Azeri, Jewish autonomies, as well as national cultural societies of Ukrainians and Belarusians.

"Mother is not just a human being that gives life, but also a person, who fills life with meaning and gives moral guidelines to us all, - Minister for Internal Regional and Municipal Policy of the Nizhny Novgorod region, Anatoly Migunov said. - Today, there are women from the Nizhny Novgorod region in the audience, who take an active part in public life, in raising the younger generation. In the Nizhny Novgorod region, there are more than a hundred nationalities, and it is very important that they all share love for mother, respect for traditional values, love for their homeland - this is very important."

Mother's Day was established in Russia on January 30, 1998. It is celebrated on the last Sunday of November.

A year after the constitutional referendum of December 4th, 2016 that saw the victory of the NAY and the blatant defeat of the government front that had proposed the referendum, it can be said with certainty that the trauma for the defeated is now past. But there is still fear in them, not so hidden either...

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
