Speaking at the festival, Mr. Evgeny Vlasov, Deputy Vice-President for International Relations at FEFU, highly appreciated both Vietnamese and Russian students for organizing the festival and adding that they have put great efforts to introduce and promote the beauty of the nature and people of Vietnam.

Diana Albertovna, Head of the FEFU Department of the Asia-Pacific Region, welcomed the event, noting that it provided visitors a better understanding of Vietnamese culture and people.

The festival helped Vietnam more understand about geography, its “Con Rong Chau Tien” (Offspring of Dragon and Fairy) tale and Tet Nguyen Dan (Lunar New Year) festival, and significance of the Vietnamese national flag.

During the festival, Vietnamese martial arts, songs and folk dances as well as various traditional folk games and “Pho cuon” (rice noodle roll), one of Vietnamese traditional dishes, were also introduced.

FEFU is among the universities in Russia with a large number of students, about 30, pursuing Vietnamese language studies. More than 80 Vietnamese students are studying at the university./.
