Rossotrudnichestvo organized an international poetry contest "#idaPushkin”! More than a thousand foreigners from 54 countries took part in this fantastic contest marking Alexander Pushkin’s 220th birth anniversary. The youngest participant is only 4 years old, and the oldest is 78 years old. Most of the videos were sent from Greece.
According to the terms of the contest participants had to read their own poems in Russian in the style of Pushkin's verse.
Participants posted videos with reading their works on social networks with hashtags #Пушкин220, #Pushkin220, #idaPushkin, #АйдаПушкин, #почитаемпушкина.
The winners are three participants from China, South Ossetia and India. A video with their participation is posted on the Agency's social networks.
Poetry readings with the most interesting contestants will also be posted on Rossotrudnichestvo social networks throughout June.
