"For people separated from their homeland, it is important to keep in touch with fellow countrymen"

As Khabarovsk residents who moved to live in Moscow, do not forget about their roots

In Moscow in the Golyanovo district there is Khabarovskaya Street, which the people of Khabarovsk moved to the capital for permanent residence consider "their own". They even introduced the tradition of celebrating the name-day of the highway, named after the Khabarovsk Territory, and conducting business walks along it. The idea of ​​such walks and not only belongs to the Khabarovsk community of Moscow and the Moscow region.

About their community of Muscovites Khabarovsk people say simply: people gathered here who at different times and for different reasons moved to the capital, but they keep the memory of their small homeland, they try to maintain close ties with fellow countrymen. For them, Komsomolsk-on-Amur, Khabarovsk, Sovetskaya Gavan is not just a point on the map. There they grew up, studied, served, raised children, achieved success.

The success of Khabarovsk could have been devoted to a separate book: one should only look at the list of the government of the community. This is the well-known musicologist, producer Natalia Vakhova, choreographer, professor of GITIS Anna Dementieva, adviser to the Foreign Ministry Vladimir Polikanov and even ex-mayor of Khabarovsk and former head of the metropolitan Lefortovo municipal district Pavel Filippov. Is not the list - the color of the nation, and when only people find time to promote in Moscow the traditions and values ​​of their native land?

"It is realistic to involve people in joint activities, if everyone feels the significance and meaning of such work," explains EastRussia chairman of the community, an advisor to the Governor of the Khabarovsk Krai for working with the media, Sergei Akulich. - Someone, let's say, want to attend cultural and educational and entertainment events organized by the community. Someone is attracted to sports or hiking. For others, personal participation in charitable projects is important. And someone himself urgently needs support or even protection, for example, among veterans. Businessmen may want to use the ties and the "lobbying" potential of the community to promote their goods and services in the regions.

In order to conduct work at a higher level and develop ties throughout Russia and abroad, in June last year, the community was registered with the Ministry of Justice and received the status of the Union for the Development of Interregional Relations and Support of Countrymen "Khabarovsk Association".

The program of activities is rich: from the celebration of the Days of the Far East in Moscow, the holding of festivals with the invitation of national teams to help the boarding school for visually impaired children in Korolev and other charitable activities. So, with the participation of "Moscow" Khabarovsk citizens in 2016, money was collected to create a monument to Marshal Vasilevsky, which was solemnly opened in Khabarovsk on the birthday of the famous commander.

- For people geographically separated from their native land, it is very important to keep in touch with fellow countrymen. And they took advantage of this opportunity in the Khabarovsk krai, participating in the common cause of restoring historical memory, - explains Sergey Akulich.

That's why Khabarovskaya Street in the capital is considered a native of the Far East. In the spring, trees are planted, in the winter they clean the approaches to the children's library No. 71.

"It is noteworthy that" our "street is located in the municipal district of Golyanovo on the eastern outskirts of the capital, that is closest to Khabarovsk - some 6140 km in a straight line," the chairman of the community laughs.

On this street, holidays are held in the Days of the Far East, festivals, creative meetings, which are welcomed by guests from all over the district.


One of the important events, which is now being prepared by the community - with the active support of the Governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Vyacheslav Shport, the regional government and the Moscow authorities - the anniversary of Khabarovsk and the Khabarovsk Territory. Celebrate them will be 20-21 October and the base pad, of course, will be the capital's Khabarovskaya street. Scheduled and festivals, and creative meetings.

And, of course, the patriotic waltz "The Coast of a Happy Childhood", written by the famous composer Grigory Gladkov (also a former Khabarovsk resident) on poems of the winners of the poetic competition, will sound. The competition was held the whole past year, 26 poets-Far Eastern artists presented their works, in the end the author of "Plasticine Crow" selected the lines of Khabarovsk residents Lyudmila Lembertovich and Vasily Ushakov.

The record holder of the Guinness Book of Records in terms of the number of children's songs, Gladkov actively encourages Russians to go to master the Far Eastern lands, adding: they say, would be younger, he would leave himself - "there is so much free space!".

By the way, the compatriots are trying to help solve the problem of developing Far Eastern lands, to the best of their ability, knowing perfectly well how different is the standard of living in the cities. For example, to the same musicians to make their way to the musical Olympus, it is necessary, like many years ago, to go conquer Moscow. In the native lands of prospects is not enough, if only to become a celebrity to the whole Far East ... And for many residents of central Russia, the Far East is associated with exile since the Stalin era. And to start from scratch where there is a completely different way of life and standard of living, not everyone will decide.

- The older generation is burdened with families, property, and young people can easily get out of the way. Although, of course, they will have to radically change their lives, - says Sergei Akulich.

To help solve this problem, the country's community, together with the Minsk region, regularly conducts discussions, trying to answer on the basis of experts' opinions on the following questions: what can the Moscow earth organizations do to "mobilize" young people for the development of the Far East and whether the desired effect in modern conditions "romanticization" The Far East with the help of fiction, music, songs, movies?

It is not a secret that the romance was attracted to the construction of the BAM of the first Komsomol members, as well as to all the great construction projects of the century. And the fact that the Moscow youth shows genuine interest to the Far East, mass visits to the Days of the Far East in the capital say. What was the value of the Far Eastern Fair? The people with pleasure bought honey, fish, wild herbs, souvenirs. Special success was enjoyed by the master classes of Nanaian craftsmen, who taught everyone who wanted to create souvenirs from fish skin.


Members of the community are always happy to welcome visitors to the capital of masters and creative teams from their native land. As far as they can, they themselves try to interest the Muscovites with the history and culture of the Far East. So, a couple of years ago, Khabarovsk citizens recreated in Moscow after 100 years the Society of Zealots of Russian History, Culture and Art, which is now headed by musicologist, producer, vice-president of the public organization "Russian Wealth" Natalia Vakhova. The same society "Moscow" Khabarovsk citizens want to create in the Far East.

A major achievement of the community members is the conclusion of two agreements on cooperation with the organizations of the Khabarovsk Territory, signed in January this year. This agreement between the libraries of Khabarovsk and Moscow, in particular, the creative friendship of Khabarovsk Komarov Library and the library No. 71 in Golyanovo, which has lasted for several years, but now has received official status. The second agreement was an agreement on cooperation between the Khabarovsk community and the NGO Far Eastern Women Movement.

- The subject of this agreement was the joint activity of the parties in carrying out activities to create a positive image of the Khabarovsk Territory as a dynamically developing region of the country, attractive for life, recreation, tourism and investment, - explains Sergey Akulich.

And libraries happily took up the matter and already in February held a unique joint event with Khabarovsk, dedicated to the 100 anniversary of the famous Far Eastern writer Anatoly Vakhov, the author of the famous trilogy "Whalers". The space bridge connected two cities, the experts of which were vividly discussing not only the creativity of the writer, but also the problem of preserving his literary heritage.

This year, the community showed itself at the festival of applied creativity of young disabled people "We are together!", Which was held at the Palace of Pioneers on Vorobyovy Gory.

It is noteworthy that in Khabarovsk itself they follow the fate of fellow countrymen and from time to time local mass media report on which of the famous Khabarovsk residents lives and does what. For example, that live in Moscow, two famous Khabarovsk generals - Vladimir Losik and Vyacheslav Khvostov. In the capital, settled for many years, led the municipal chamber choir of Khabarovsk Lydia Gladkaya and her son Maxim, who worked on the radio "East of Russia", and after - on NTV. Follow Khabarovsk and the fate of those who left not only their native land, but also the country. Glorified Khabarovsk in a very young age, the brilliant violinist Sasha Kuznetsov lives and works in Zurich, he is now a star in the musical horizon, laureate of many international and Russian competitions. Lives in America brilliant teacher of the Institute of Culture and Arts Nina Paulova. The special pride of the Khabarovsk people is the former archbishop Ignaty, who now heads the Argentine and South American diocese and lives in Buenos Aires.

"The most loyal friends of the region were and are fellow countrymen who left for the capital," adds Sergei Akulich to the story about the compatriot. - In our creative plans - to plant on the street Khabarovskaya alley from 240 Far Eastern cedars, to realize the ideas of Grigory Gladkov about the creation of songs and movies about the Far East. There are plans to hold a competition for the best design of the decoration of one of the houses along Khabarovskaya Street. And it is possible that the Khabarovsk symbolics will appear on its wall.
