The documentary "At the origins of the Irtysh region", telling about the identity of the Omsk region, was filmed for the 200th anniversary of the region, which is celebrated this year. This was reported by the press service of the government of the Omsk region.

"For the 200th anniversary of the Omsk region, the book "Kinovideocenter" and the film company "Siberia" with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Omsk region created a documentary film "At the origins of the Irtysh region". <...> The documentary project shows the entire identity of folklore, crafts and traditions of Siberians living in 32 municipal districts of the Omsk region, as well as displays the achievements and sports life of our region," the message reads.

The film is aimed at preserving the historical truth and folk traditions of the residents of the Omsk region, which is home to more than 120 nationalities. The premiere of the tape will take place on October 1, when it was planned to hold an anniversary celebration in Omsk. However, the festive events were postponed to a more appropriate time by the decision of the authorities.

Omsk Region was created in 1822 by the decree of Emperor Alexander I "On the division of the Siberian provinces into Western and Eastern administrations". According to the document, the new Siberian region was established as part of the West Siberian Governor-General. The Omsk region includes the internal districts of Petropavlovsk, Semipalatinsk, Ust-Kamenogorsk (the territory of modern Kazakhstan) and Omsk, as well as seven external districts.


In 1838, Nicholas I, by his decree, liquidated a new territorial entity, while Omsk itself became the capital of the West Siberian Governor-General. The region received its name again in 1934. Then the Omsk Region, which today has 32 districts, stretched from the borders of Kazakhstan to the Kara Sea and was one of the largest regions of the USSR, consisting of 67 districts.
