Yesterday, April 15, on the Day of Culture, at the initiative of Alexandra Ochirova, Deputy Secretary General of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly, poet, UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador, a poetic marathon dedicated to Nicholas Roerich started.

It will last one year. Its goal is to remind people of human life as the highest value.

“On April 15, 1935, the Roerich Pact was signed in Washington, D.C. — the first international document that outlined the advantage of protecting cultural property over the so-called military necessity. I remember with gratitude and bow the name of Nicholas Roerich, a humanist who turned to all mankind with his idea of protecting culture in all its manifestations, - says Alexandra Ochirova. - We live in a special time, the risks and challenges of which are acquiring a dramatic and sometimes tragic character before our eyes - the destruction of nature and the inner world of man, the threat of the destruction of mankind in general. A tragic situation has developed all over the world, no matter how it is designated at the national levels. The intrinsic value of human life is on everyone’s agenda…”

The poetic marathon has an ambitious program — 365 poems by Alexandra Ochirova, the author of many collections of poetry and popular songs, the initiator of a number of conceptually formulated ideas concerning the saving of humanity and a new moral order, every day appear on the YouTube channel. Famous writers, poets, artists, musicians, people of different ages and professions, friends and simply admirers of the author's work read poetry.

In parallel, meetings with students, various forums, presentations of festivals will be held.

The final project will be the release of a separate book of poems and the results of discussions, round tables and public meetings held over the year - from April 15, 2020 to April 15, 2021.
