Viktor Vorobyov, a deputy to the State Council of the Komi Republic and a representative of the Communist Party, submitted a draft law to the State Council’s Legislative Committee to allow the use of the Komi language in parliament.
The Komi-Permyak Literary Language Day is celebrated on February 17 by decree of the Governor of Perm Krai since 2010. As has become customary, a number of events and activities are organised on the occasion to promote the Komi-Permyak language.
Since 2007, the Kindred Peoples’ Programme confers the Literary Award in honour of the Udmurt writer and public figure Kuzebai Gerd.
The main objective of the Kindred Peoples’ Programme (in Estonian: Hõimurahvaste programm) is to support the preservation and development of the languages and cultures of kindred Uralic (i.e., Finno-Ugric and Samoyedic) indigenous peoples.
We do not consider cooperation possible with Finno-Ugric peoples’ organisations and individuals that support military action against Ukraine by the Russian Federation, until they stop supporting the activities against humanity by the leadership of their country.
The programme of Finno-Ugric Capitals of Culture aims to raise awareness of Finno-Ugric and Samoyedic peoples as well as Uralic languages, to strengthen collective Finno-Ugric identity and to stimulate sustainable local development in different corners of the Finno-Ugric world.
