«Read Pushkin

Dear Friend!

We invite you to take part in the international project “Read Pushkin!” dedicated to the Russian Language Day. This holiday is traditionally celebrated on the birthday of the great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin, June 6.

It is no secret that Alexander Pushkin is a unique poet whose poems have been loved and revered throughout the world for almost 200 years. We hope you love them too!

To participate in the project simply record a video of you or your friends reading one of Pushkin's poems and send it to us!

There are some simple requirements for the video:

Please do not forget to introduce yourself, say what country you are from and name the work of Alexander Pushkin (poem or excerpt) that you are going to recite.

And most importantly - recite with pleasure! Pushkin is our everything!
