at the junction of the borders of Russia, Kazakhstan, China and Mongolia there is a unique macro-region - the Great Altai. This is the center of the Turkic-Mongolian world, the cradle of the peoples of the Altai language family - Bashkirs and Uzbeks, Kyrgyz and Kazakhs, Gagauz and Karakalpaks and 30 other ethnic groups.




Explore the history, natural potential, current situation and development prospects of the Bolshoi Altai is sought by many scientists. A few years ago, they teamed up and created the Great Altai Research and Education Center, the main goal of which is to study and preserve the cultural and historical unity of the Turkic, Altai and Mongolian peoples together. One of the organization's projects is the International Altai Forum. This year it was held in Barnaul for the second time and was dedicated to the historical and cultural heritage and modernity of the Turko-Mongolian world of the Greater Altai.

. Studies that are not included in the individual borders of the state: this is history, this is archeology, this is ethnography - and these, of course, are more serious conclusions, - said Sergey Zemlyukov, President of the Altai State University, head of the REC "Altaistics and Turkology Great Altai. - These are joint expeditions that we are planning and which have just ended on Kyrgyz soil. These are new areas of our cooperation, which gives us an alliance with the universities of Central Asia on such a topical topic as Altaic and Turkic studies.

, which the university has been demonstrating over the past decades, - said Vitaly Snesar, Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Altai Territory as part of the event. - It's always great when pundits give the right guidelines. A common history, a common territory and a common future - this is probably such, if you like, an improvised slogan for our joint efforts.

The Great Altai is being explored in different countries and in different branches of science. Scientists study ethno-political and ethno-social processes, cultural heritage, legal systems of the Turkic world, religious movements, analyze the possibilities for sustainable development of the Greater Altai regions and model ecological and socio-economic processes in this space. All these topics were discussed by the forum participants at the plenary session and special sections. The researchers talked about their achievements, including in international teams, and found like-minded people for further joint work.

topics, - said Kanat Sadykov, rector of the Kyrgyz National University. J. Balasagyn. - It allows a very wide range of views. At the same time, this forum, in my opinion, allows us to understand that Altai unites many states that already exist in the space of Eurasia with a single source.

An important unifying element of the scientific community of Eurasia and the continent as a whole is a single information space. Several events of the Altai forum, including the media dialogue of the universities of the Greater Altai, were dedicated to its creation and development. Participants - employees of information services and journalists of universities, as well as representatives of professional media, agreed to create a platform for the rapid exchange of information, as well as hold a competition for journalists. The topic - Eurasian integration - was proposed by the General Director of the TV channel and the site "Big Asia" Alexander Lebedev, who became one of the main speakers of the media discussion.

“I like the idea of the competition,” said Alexander Lebedev as part of a media bridge. - I propose to make a competition for the best work on Eurasian integration, on the role of Russia in this process. This is very important today, because we are talking about the EAEU countries, we are talking about the old formats - the CIS, we are talking about new formats that are emerging. I would suggest making a nomination for the best work in this competition, which would describe the role of the Russian Federation in the integration processes, both integration processes in the EAEU space, and integration processes in our country itself.

competition will be published on our website bigasia.ru. And judging by the number of young people involved, there will be many such texts. The illusion that social networks unite is gradually disappearing today. People, including thanks to the pandemic, began to realize that real interaction, communication and, of course, integration at the international, interethnic level, is possible only in real life and with the help of real deeds. The International Altai Forum also contributed to the deepening of integration.

“The issues that we raise during the discussion and the topics that were voiced today are very relevant, and they really, first of all, work for that so that we develop peaceful, good-neighbourly relations and work together on all these important projects that lead to peace and prosperity for each of the states, - concluded Rector of Altai State University Sergey Bocharov.
