The Day of Union State 2017 at the festival is dedicated to the anniversary of the Belarusian musical band “Syabry” (Friends). The band is loved both in Belarus and in Russia.

Not only music but art as well unites Belarus and Russia. The place of attraction was the house-museum Zdravnevo of Ilya Repin. The representatives of the Standing Committee of the Union Sate spoke to young philologists about art and literature heritage. They also got acquainted with the biography of Alexander Zhirkevich, a public figure o the end of the 19th-20th centuries.

The copy of his portrait, which was painted by Repin, was presented to the House-Museum.

Grigory Rapota, State Secretary of the Union State of Belarus and Russia:
This place has already become a place which attracts people, who are interested in art and culture. Today we gather philologists. I suppose that this part has already settled as a place of attraction during the Slavonic Bazaar. Therefore, we will continue our cooperation.
