- Our organization the fourth year has been successfully running the "Days of Ossetian culture in Europe." The event has been held in Belgium, France, Holland, Hungary and other countries, and each time caused great interest among Europeans.
Relationships are established not only with the cultural centers of Rossotrudnichestv, embassies of Russia, Ossetian diaspora, but also with local municipal and regional authorities.
