Students started their studies in Russia at the end of last year, but they already know well the name of our literary genius. They know that he was and remains "the number one poet" in our country. The students read texts about Pushkin, watched fragments of films dedicated to him at Russian language lessons. Teacher Olga Kareva spoke about the life and work of the great writer, about the fact that on this day - February 10 - his life was tragically cut short after a duel. The students laid flowers at the poet's monument.
