Festival of Japanese Culture in Russia Opens in St. Petersburg

A festival of Japanese culture in Russia opens on Saturday in St. Petersburg. Japanese Ambassador to Russia Issey Nomura said at a press conference on Friday at the International Press Center in St. Petersburg that the festival will continue over the course of the year and visit St. Petersburg, Moscow, and cities of the Far East.

As part of the festival, a concert of three-stringed instruments Tsugar Syamisen will take place on the stage of the Maly zal of the Shostakovich Philharmonic in St. Petersburg. St. Petersburg jazz musician David Goloshchokin will also participate in the concert. On April 21, Japanese musicians will conduct master of class games at various learning institutions on Japanese national instruments. On April 22, an exhibition 'Traditional Japanese Ceramics' will open in the Russian Ethnographic Museum in St. Petersburg, and on April 26 the third annual festival 'Japanese Spring in St. Petersburg' will take place.

'The Festival of Japanese Culture in Russia - 2003' is organized by the Japanese Embassy in Russia.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?

Venezuela may expect another Panama scenario from 1989
