Culture When will the model be brought to life?
When will the model be brought to life?

On April 13 a council of tourism development agencies of Chuvashia took place. The minister of culture Vadim Efimov reported on the progress of constructing Ethnic Chuvashia Tourism and Recreation Cluster.

It is not like you can recall promptly even where this project started. Still in a recent development the Federal Agency of Touristic Development imbued 250 million roubles to provide the cluster's Amazonia complex with natural gas, water and asphalt road.

However, Chuvashia's Prime Minister Ivan Motorin is skeptical these measures are sufficient to realize the apathetic Recreation Cluster project and ordered to hurry up.

Amazonia and Vedasuar are the names of Chuvashia and Cheboksary in 1450's medieval map by Italian cartographer Fra Mauro.

During Chuvash and Belorussian heads of states meeting on April 9 in Minsk Ignatiev expressed his belief that Belarus is a reliable and promising partner. The Chuvash head noted : "there are some areas of common interest that can give an additional impetus to our businessmen and enterprises and can help us develop this field through horizontal ties."

It was emphasized that the two states have worked hard to establish close economic ties which resulted in double increase in bilateral trade over the last three years. Strengthening technical, scientific and agricultural cooperation seems most promising to Ignatiev.



The St. Petersburg Chuvash national culture autonomy runs a fairly successful Chuvash language club.

The members of the club gather together on Wednesdays in the national literature library, among them are Chuvash expats and their children residing in St. Petersburg.

Not long ago a language festival took place in the city. Ekaterina Danilova presented Chuvash to the audience of 450 people.

The viewers observed the softness of Chuvash sounds, and the song-like melody of it. Language enthusiasts asked many questions about the Turkic influences and foreign loans in the language, about the similarity of old Chuvash script with runes and the place of traditional script-like embroidery in today's life. Ekaterina felt sorry that the hour appointed for Q&A was not enough to answer all the questions.

Chuvashia improved its environmental rating among federal subjects of Russia. In 2014-2015 charts prepared by non-governmental organization Green Patrol the republic is 9th of 85 subjects, a four positions leap from #13 last year.

The main environmental event of the winter happened in the city of Novocheboksarsk where a full-cycle solar panel manufacturing plant was launched, the first of its kind in Russia. This influenced the industrial environmental index of the region despite economical difficulties the country is facing, according to the environmentalists.

The ecological rating is formed from three indices: environmental protection, industrial environmental impact, social ecology.

On March 12, Chuvash Orthography: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow conference was held in the Humanities Institute of Chuvash Republic. The event gathered together teachers, journalists and researchers.

Surely there are many thinkers and ideas on how to write correctly - those who want to return to the old rules, those who prefer no change, and those who want "reforms" like eliminating ambiguity when writing compound words. The Bible translator Eva Lisina, for instance, considers old rules to let words be perceived in deeper, more meaningful ways.

But yes, the question was put forward - is it really necessary to debate orthography when school hours for Chuvash are significantly reduced?

The Conference was attended by the head of Chuvash Republic's State Council Committee of Social Politics and National Question Peter Krasnov.



Mufti of Moscow, Central Region and Chuvashia, member of the Russian Public Chamber Ali Krganov found the Richard Wagner's Tannhauser staged in the Novosibirsk Opera Theatre unacceptable in a press statement released on March 13.

He pointed out anything that has connection to Jesus (Prophet Isa) and the mother Mary (Mariam) are holy in Islam. Krganov considers staging Tannhauser in Great Lent is an attempt by liberal public to destablilize situation, and expressed that Muslims are against the discrediting of religious values and symbols regardless of which confession.

Novosibirsk prosecutors brought administrative charges of public desecration of religious and church literature, holy relics, symbols and attributes against Mr. Kulyabin, who staged Wagner's Tannhauser. The case was initiated by Metropolitan Tikhon of Novosibirsk and Berdsk.
