Solemn meeting, devoted to the 20th anniversary of the Bashkir national center “Ural” has taken place in Ufa yesterday. On this occasion more than 100 delegates both from our Republic and the neighboring regions gathered at the Bashkir State Philharmonic Society.

The Bashkir national center “Ural” is considered one of the largest public organizations in Bashkortostan at present time. It was established in 1989 on the base of the Bashkir national culture center “AK TIRMA”. During 20 years the center works over preservation of the cultural heritage of Bashkir nation and restoration of Bashkir national traditions and history.

“The contribution of the Bashkir national center “Ural” to preservation of cultural traditions, revival of Bashkir nation’s national self-consciousness, consolidation of international agreement and support of a productive dialogue between all nations in Bashkortostan and the authority can hardly be overestimated” – the chairman of the World Bashkir Kurultay executive committee Azamat Galin said – “The modern history RB is closely connected with the public community, which by its will power made the decisions of the Bashkir national center “Ural” a reality”.
