23 February


Well, in these unquiet days we are publishing our new video ‘23 february – Defender of the Fatherland Day’ in the Traditions and History section. Defender of the Fatherland Day is a public holiday in Russia. Many celebrate this holiday, many do not. People have different attitudes to this holiday. Watch our new video and find out different opinions of people of different ages.

We’d like to remind you as well that we have another article (with audio, B1-B2 8min) dedicated to the history of both public holidays – 23 February and 8 March‘Гендерные праздники в России’ in our Extra section.

Enjoy!
