On Maslenitsa celebrations in Malta

 

On Sunday, March 10, 2019 Ambassador of Russia to Malta Mr. Vladimir Malygin and staff members of the Embassy attended one of the major annual events organised by the Russian community in Malta – the “Maltese Maslenitsa (“pancake week”) 2019” Festival at Montekristo Estate, which was put together by the Coordinating Committee of the Russian Compatriots Assembly in Malta and other Russian community associations with the assistance of the Embassy and the Russian Centre for Science and Culture.

Addressing those gathered Ambassador Malygin underlined the importance of such events for consolidating the Russian community in Malta and expressed readiness to continue providing necessary support to the community associations, which organize them.

This year the Festival’s programme featured a concert by folk companies and performers, contests and workshops for children and grown-ups, a photo session as well as a Russian souvenir fair.

According to the organisers’ estimates the event was attended by more than 1,000 people.
