On June 6, Tashkent, hosted a poetic event dedicated to the anniversary of the birth of the great Russian poet A.S. Pushkin, as well as the Day of the Russian Language. It was participated by representatives of the creative community and national cultural centers of the capital of Uzbekistan, teachers of the Russian language and students. The chairman of the Union of Writers of Uzbekistan, Muhammad Ali, opened the event. He said in his speech, “The brilliant Russian poet is known and loved in Uzbekistan. Poets and writers of the republic are trying to comprehend the philosophy of his poetry, which allows them to get acquainted with all the richness of the Russian language.”

 

The Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation in Uzbekistan, Vladimir Tyurdenev, noted, “Pushkin's genius continues to inspire many Uzbek authors even today.” He also cited the words of the classic Uzbek poet, Aybek, “Pushkin's poetry will have a great impact on Uzbek literature. Today we already feel the influence of his mastery on the work of many poets.”

 

“All houses that honor Navoi honor Pushkin as well,” Tyurdenev cited another classic of Uzbek literature, Khamid Alimdzhan.

 

Worth recalling, the monument to Pushkin was opened in Tashkent in 1974, to coincide with the 175th anniversary of the birth of the great poet. Its creators were the famous architect Sabir Adylov and sculptor Mikhail Anikushin. During the poetic event, the speakers noted, “This monument not only symbolizes the poet's creative heritage, but also demonstrates the strengthening of the Russian-Uzbek humanitarian and cultural ties, which allows the Russian language to remain the language of interethnic communication.”
