Foreign Languages Department of Mariupol State University celebrated Neutrality Day of Turkmenistan
On December 12 Turkmenistan celebrates Neutrality Day which is second most important state holiday in the independent history of this country. On December 12, 1995 the 50th Session of the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution which supported the government of Turkmenistan in its decision to become a state with the status of permanent neutrality.
The students from Turkmenistan in joint effort with the Student Council arranged celebrations on this occasion at the Foreign Languages Department of MSU. The event was of great interest for students and academic staff since this holiday has never been celebrated at the Department before. The event started with the national anthem of Turkmenistan; then foreign students presented folk dances, songs, history and traditions of their country to the students and guests of the Department. All those present at this holiday were congratulated by Vice-Dean of the Foreign Languages Department Maksym Stiopin.
The students from Turkmenistan treated everyone to the traditional Turkmen dish pilaf and oriental sweets, which was a real culmination of the celebrations.
