On Saturday 11th November I was invited to Bogazkőy picnic area to the south of Girne where the North Cyprus Russian Speaking Association had a special day celebrating Scarlet Day or Unity Day so I went there with my camera crew for my Vox Pop programme on BRT 2 TV and interviewed many guests.

There were around 70 people enjoying Russian food, barbeques’ and drink and having a wonderful  time and great entertainers put on a spectacular show.  There was singing by Galina Konnova and Vladdislava Matvevva. The children were entertained by Kristina Sergaina who was a professional entertainer in a circus and the children were amazed by her tricks.

The North Cyprus Russian Speaking Association has been established for seven years and speaking to the President of NCRSA, Maria Kocadal, she explained that the event has been going on for six years now and it has been a great success every year.

The sponsors for the events were Lemar Supermarket’s, Gems Jewellery, Association of Turkish Cypriots Real Estate Agency and another sponsor, Hasan Sungur.

For a Fun packed Vox Pop programme watch this space for the BRT2 transmission dates of my show which will be published very soon.
