Plenipotentiary representative of the Russian president to the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev visited the fair organized on Tverskaya Street within the framework of Days of the Far East in Moscow.
Yuri Trutnev tasted one of the most famous dishes of national cuisine at the pavilion of Yakutia - Indigirka fish salad. According to the organizers, Yakut fish is in high demand among the guests of the fair - chir, omul, nelma, muksun and other northern fish (frozen and smoked).
In the pavilion of traditional crafts of the Far East, the plenipotentiary stopped near the stand of the creative workshop of Konstantin Mamontov, professor of Arctic State Institute of Culture and Arts.
"Frankly, I did not expect that Muscovites will be so interested in our art," says the Honored Artist of the Russian Federation. “A lot of people are visiting master classes of mammoth bone carving and buy souvenirs."
In the pavilion "Tea" Yuri Trutnev became interested in the most northern tea on the planet. He asked the manufacturer about the secret of the taste of their products. "It's all because of our climate," the representatives of the Sakha Tea Company answered. “Sharp temperature changes, short flowering - this is what makes the Yakut herbs unique."
The Far Eastern Fair is open through December 13. December 15-17 Days of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) will be held as a separate program in Moscow, timed to coincide with the 385th anniversary of joining the Russian state, the press service of the head and government of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) reports.
