A platform of Ruthenian professional institutions, civil associations and activists have pronounced the year 2020 as the Year of the Ruthenian Village.
They have also introduced a logo that will connect all the activities linked to the year-long event.
“The logo is based on a detail of folk embroidery that we often see in Ruthenian regions,” said Peter Medviď of the Round Table of Ruthenians in Slovakia (OSRS), as quoted by the SITA newswire.
He added that it exemplifies the richness of the folk culture that has been preserved mainly in the villages.
Chairman of the OSRS, Peter Štefaňák, also introduced an action plan for the Year of the Ruthenian Village that was approved at the meeting. This includes activities on social networks, air-time in the Ruthenian media and central and local cultural events within the project.
