Russia has received the right to host the 1st festival of the World Map of the World movement, which will be held next year. A draw will take place on June 1 of this year, during which the order of the festivals in the participating countries will be determined, the Chechnya Today newspaper reports.

Within the framework of the festivals, performers and creative groups from different countries will perform in their languages. The World Map movement unites children from different countries around the idea of ​​peace and rejection of armed conflicts on the planet. The purpose of the World Map campaign is to demonstrate the cultural diversity of different countries and friendship of peoples.

The first action within the framework of the movement took place four years ago; performers and ensembles from Russia, China, Spain and other countries from different continents became its participants. The second action in 2018 was a large-scale flash mob with the participation of representatives from France, Israel, Thailand, Brazil and other countries.

In March it became known that the Ukrainian authorities would not allow children's creative teams to participate in the Map of the World events and festivals. In a letter to the Ukrainian education authorities, Deputy Minister of Education and Science of the country Vera Rogova considered the participation of Ukrainian children in the World Map unacceptable and called the worldwide movement, recognized in dozens of countries, a "propaganda campaign" of Moscow aimed at "shaping a peacemaking image of Russia." Similar letters from other authorities were received by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Youth and Sports of Ukraine.

“Sometimes I wandered about a huge park in the center of New York and, looking at the skyscrapers that bordered it, thought with cold fury about wonderful American orchestras that didn’t care about my music…” Sergei Prokofiev wrote in 1918, immediately after emigration. The audience listening to The Love for Three Oranges, his opera, would never think that the composer of this brilliant sunny music could speak that bitterly about the country where he had his first real success. And that 18 years later, he would finally return to his homeland to see new openings for both life and creativity.
