October 25, the United editorial board of national newspapers 'Khanty Yasang' and 'Luima Saripos' held a presentation of the printed collection 'Sixty Years With a Reader' during the celebration of the Finno-Ugric Kinfolk Days hosted in YUSU. The book aimed to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the newspaper 'Khanty Yasang' and Grigory Lazarev's birthday centenary, the first editor-in-chief of the newspaper 'Lenin Pantkhuvat' (eng. Lenin's Cause).

The collection broadly discovers and traces the making of and the rise of the Khanty press. The edition comprises articles about full-time and freelance contributors to the newspaper over its lifetime. The book claims to be a chronicle of Khanty people's lives, with the articles to provide insight into Khanty life stories and folklore of different historical periods. The printed issue will be of use for designated historians, literature scholars, journalists, students, lecturers and those who are interested in Khanty way of life.

At the meeting, the students saw a presentation of an exhibition of Finno-Ugric printed publications and a photo exhibition 'We are all Russia'. The photographs were taken during the Finno-Ugric photography workshops in villages and small settlements where the identity and the ancient culture of the Khanty and Mansi peoples remained preserved.

Raisa Reshetnikova, the head of the editorial board 'Khanty Yasang', told about the history of the Finno-Ugric Kinfolk Days and what the staff lives and breathes, and publishes along with the newspaper. 

Irina Samsonova, 'Khanty Yasang' news reporter, introduced the students to a 'Young Reporter' project focused on fostering journalists for the national press. Besides that, the students were welcome to do internships in 'Khanty Yasang' and 'Luima Saripos' to have the opportunity to work here in future.
