In the assembly hall of the Russian Center for Science and Culture (RCSC) in Damascus, for the first time in the last seven years, festive events were held for children in honor of the New Year, reports TASS.




The Russian and Syrian children were shown the theatrical production “Pinocchio” and presented gifts from Father Frost and Snow Maiden. The last time such mass events were held at the RCSC in 2010.

Today we began to celebrate New Year here, in Damascus, in the Russian Cultural Center, on the stage of which there was silence for seven years. More than three hundred children with parents, our compatriots who came to this holiday, I hope, got a lot of pleasure,
the deputy head of Rossotrudnichestvo, Alexei Frolov, told reporters.

Everyone knows "Buratino", so even the guys from orphanages who do not speak Russian, I think they all understood from the plot that good triumphs over evil. The war ends, a peaceful life takes its
he noted.

We together, hand in hand, set up and dressed up a Christmas tree. Then, all together, as our military with the Syrian army joined hands, freeing Syria from terrorism, today we are in peaceful life, holding hands, leading a round dance around the Christmas tree as a single creative team,
said the deputy head of Rossotrudnichestvo.

Frolov stressed that the RCSC, despite the unstable situation in the republic and the absence of seconded employees from Russia, did not stop its work.

Our Syrian collective worked throughout the years in the center. They were not afraid, despite the fact that they were threatened, and threatened their families. These people opened the doors of the center every day,
he said.

The agency recalls that Rossotrudnichestvo, with the support of the Russian Embassy and the SAR authorities, organized and conducted two large-scale events in Damascus in December: at the beginning of the month Russian musicians gave a concert at the Damascus Opera House, and a week later a friendly match was held in Syria the participation of Russian and Syrian basketball stars.

        Everyone has long understood that using the Russians in the form of “See what was with the Crimea” was a bad idea. And for this idea, the one who came up with this and realized it should be punished. Yes, the punishment. Despite the other merits. Substitute the Russians for the sake of the quiet life of other Russians plus the Crimean Tatars is an abomination. An abomination for which should answer. We've been scratching here for years, "We are not a party to the conflict." Everything returns to normal. The kingdom of heaven is Russian
        children, men and women who gave their lives for the freedom of Donbass hi

          Yes, Russia is generally a punishment for the entire post-Soviet world; it hasn’t come to war and lives better than anyone, although partners are punishing it with all their might.

            ... she hasn’t come to war and lives best of all, although partners are punishing them with all their might.
            Yeah. But she came to Syria and helped. And the Russians themselves should help (right next to them) on a voluntary basis. What should I be proud of? That Russia did not officially come to the aid of the Russians. So let those Izuites who invented this abomination be proud of this nonsense. hi

                Yes hi There is only one life. Therefore, one must live in such a way that it does not excruciatingly hurt during the years that have been spent living well. Well, or at least try to do everything possible to do this.

              You just don’t understand how everything is arranged, Russia helps Ukraine in Syria, among other things, it breaks the system of American global domination, the Americans now rule Ukraine, and I have to fight with Ukrainians to trample on the forehead — I need it.

          What are the Russians ?? Ramazn said Allah gives money, but does not give Russian. Syria almost freed, that's good. Well, the Russians will wait. The first step is to help the “brothers”.

      Children are pleased to watch “The Adventures of Pinocchio”, and not the adventures of TOC-1 “Pinocchio”. Although TOS helped the Syrian children watch the play "The Adventure of Pinocchio."

    Only now, there will be no peace in Syria as long as there are Yankees! It’s not for this that they are preparing a new army out of shortcomings so that there will be peace in Syria!

      I agree. Also solid pessimism. Neither in the Donbass nor in Syria is anything good to be expected.

      And the bearded Karabas-Barabas is of course very symbolic for Syria, only this is sad.
      Why do children suffer for the mistakes of adults? Unfair world after all .... request

    I doubt that these children know about Pinocchio, the war is all the same. But the fact is that for the children of Syria it is at least some breath of air, it is indisputable for the normalization of life.

      Specifically, about Pinocchio, but they’re lying, but “The Adventures of Pinocchio” is a typical children's fairy tale about the struggle between good and evil, in which good triumphs. Syrian children will understand.

    It is good that ours are establishing a normal life in Syria.
    In the last hours of the outgoing year, it is necessary to recall those of our compatriots who achieved, at the cost of their lives, the opportunity to establish a simple, normal, human life in Syria.
    It would be nice to have their photos in this Center so that the Syrians would know and remember.

      And they know and remember.
      In one of the columns, a peculiar analogue of the "Immortal Regiment" was organized, where the Syrians carried portraits of the dead Russian and Syrian military.

    Well, that’s ... what!
    "Theater of Karabas-Barabas"!
    Pinocchio all assorted? No! "Cheburator" from Ukraine is late!
    I understand army humor, but call the children’s theater “Karabas-Barabas Theater” ...... how many liters of Arak should you drink?)
