The secretary of the Mordvinian national-cultural autonomy RB Alevtina Karpova shared her impressions of the congress with the news-agency “Bashinform”.
“Organization of the congress was quite good and we were happy that the work on development and preservation of Mordvinian traditions and language, kept in Republic of Bashkortostan, was highly estimated by the participants of the congress. The achievements of our national policy were mentioned in the report of the head of Mordvinian Republic Nikolai Merkushkin and in the speech of the chairman of Mordvinia’s state national policy committee Alexander Luzgin.
