Russian diplomats and schoolchildren of the Turkmen-Russian school named after A.S. Pushkin laid flowers at the monument to the poet in one of the picturesque corners of Ashgabat. Later in the day, schoolchildren gathered in the assembly hall of the school and read Pushkin’s poetry and prose and sang songs on his poems.
