TSU graduate Elena Podaneva has authored the video project “Hello, Russia!” in which international students view various traditions of the peoples of Russia. In the first video, students from Tomsk universities tasted Avar, Russian, and Buryat dinners and Tatar and Russian German sweets. TSU students Hussein Baalbaki from Syria and Aya Natalia from Indonesia took part in the tasting event.
In the first video, Hussein Baalbaki and Aya Nataliya tasted national dishes of the peoples of Russia - Avar cabbage rolls, Russian pies, and Tatar chak-chak, and then shared their impressions.
Most of all, the students liked cabbage rolls and chicken giblets, which are often cooked in Russian villages.
Other international students will take part in the next editions. They will play folk games on the Russian vechorka and see household items and traditions that are new to them.
