Chingiz Aitmatov’s works will be included in “Library of Eurasia Classicists”
Works of the Kyrgyz writer Chingiz Aitmatov will be included in a large-scale almanac under the Russian cultural-humanitarian “Library of Eurasia Classicists” Project.
Cultural project will be implemented in early spring this year in Russia. It is initiated by the Eurasian Commonwealth International Organization. It is envisaged to acquaint readers with nearly three dozen writers from the countries of the Eurasian continent. Also the organizers plan to publish all the works of authors not only in Russian, but also in their native languages.
According to plan, the library will be in form of hard-copy books and in electronic format. In the first phase, implementation of which will begin in this year, it is planned to introduce the writers and poets of the former USSR.
“Chingiz Aitmatov is in the first “cage” here. We think that it is extremely important to involve young generations of the newly independent States to read his books, because literary exchange between these countries has deteriorated significantly or even was interrupted”, – Ruslan Makhmutov, the Chairman of Eurasian Commonwealth says.
Eurasian Commonwealth International Organization for the promotion of cooperation with the countries of the Eurasian space brings together dozens of universities in the former Soviet Union. It implements international youth humanitarian projects in the field of education, science, culture, environment, international security, social progress, tourism and sports. Eurasian Commonwealth declares interest in promoting inter-university research and educational activities in Russia and in the CIS member-states, and humanitarian integration processes on the post-Soviet space. Activity of the Organization is not political, but only within the framework of youth and student projects.
