“Already the first two reports at the III World Bashkir Kurultay – one of the President RB and another one – of the chairman of the World Bashkir kurultay executive committee – show that for the period since the first and the second kurultays the Bashkirs have done rather good work” – the delegate of the kurultay, the director of the Institute of history, culture and language RB Firdaus Khisamitdinova shared her impressions about the first day of the kurultay with the journalists.

“First, there are few people among the kurultay’s delegates, having poor knowledge of Bashkir language, and for me, as a linguist, this is an important index. Now I can see many people here, ready to take the responsibility for preservation of their native language, culture and national mentality upon themselves. If the nation follows such principles of self-organization, it means the nation moves forward” – the director of the Institute of history, culture and language RB concluded.
