NDO/VNA – The beauty of Vietnamese people and the country’s natural landscapes are under the spotlight at a spring festival taking place in Odessa city, Ukraine, as part of activities to kick off the Vietnamese Culture Year in the East European nation.

At the opening ceremony on February 22, Vietnamese Ambassador to Ukraine Nguyen Anh Tuan noted that the festival is designed to help Ukrainian people learn more about Vietnam and the Vietnamese community in the country, who are integrating into and becoming a part of the host nation. They have served as a bridge for the friendship between Vietnam and Ukraine.

He also took the occasion to thank the Ukrainian government and Odessa authorities for creating favourable conditions for the embassy to organise the event.

Resnhikova Daroslava, a cultural official of Odessa city, expressed her delight over the organisation of the event, saying that it helps to maintain and promote the bilateral traditional relations and friendship between Ho Chi Minh City and Odessa city.
