Today, the Chairman of the Federation Council of Russia Valentina Matvienko is making an official visit to Issyk-Kul. In the morning, she managed to meet with the toraga of the Jogorku Kenesh, Chynybay Tursunbekov, and then together they decided to talk with the participants of the “Children of the Commonwealth” forum.
The International Cultural and Educational Forum “Children of the Commonwealth” is being held on the shore of Issyk-Kul for the fifth time. This year 92 schoolchildren from Kyrgyzstan, Armenia, Belarus, Moldova, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Russia were invited to rest in the Aurora Plus boarding house.
Valentina Matvienko has already been to Kyrgyzstan. She came on an official visit to Bishkek in 2014. But she came to Issyk-Kul for the first time. The pearl of Kyrgyzstan was impressed by the politics. At the meeting with the children, she noted that many people dream of visiting such a lake.
Valentina Matvienko did not make long speeches about the necessity and importance of communication between schoolchildren from different countries. They spoke about this at a meeting with the Speaker of the Kyrgyz Parliament Chynybai Tursunbekov. Instead, the chairman of the Federation Council chose to meet the guys in person.
The territory of “Aurora Plus” is quite large. Therefore, Chynybai Tursunbekova and the entire delegation rode on it in electric cars. The distinguished guests had time to watch a small video about the camp itself and visit a mini-exhibition dedicated to the history of the forum. Schoolchildren presented Valentina Matvienko with a picture of her own work as a keepsake.
The final stage of the meeting took place on the shore of the lake. At first, the schoolchildren told that they had prepared exhibits for the museum of the CIS Interparliamentary Assembly. Some of the gifts were so much to their liking that the guests decided to try them on right there.
The schoolchildren prepared for Valentina Matvienko’s visit in advance. They decided to conquer the heart of the politician not only with crafts, but also with dances. They arranged a dance flash mob right on the shore of the lake. The Chairman of the Federation Council could not resist and started dancing with the guys.
“Many people dream of coming to Issyk-Kul and seeing this pearl of Kyrgyzstan. Many are here for the first time. How many memories will last a lifetime! I will advise each of you to write a letter to the Chairman of the Kyrgyz Parliament Chynybai Tursunbekov at the end of your shift. Tell us about how you spent your time, thank you for organizing. Just write a letter, not an SMS, as you like now, ”the chairman of the CIS Interparliamentary Assembly said goodbye to the schoolchildren.
