On Saturday, November 19 the Congress of National Minorities of Ukraine (CNMU) participated in the Weekend of Twinning by organizing an exhibition and discussion event in Kiev entitled: Together: Ethnic and Religious minorities in Ukraine”. 22 panels of the exhibition were devoted to the history and identity issues of young Jews, Crimean Tatars, Armenians, Roma, Poles, Russians and Ukrainians in modern day Ukraine. There was a panel discussion among members of the Inter-ethnic inter-religious group of Kiev Youth Tolerance Club about the problem of refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in modern-day Ukraine.

The exhibition focused on controversial issues in the history of Ukraine as a polycultural state and on mutual contributions of various ethnic and religious groups to society and culture of our country. The exhibition “Together” is a joint project of the CNMU and the Anne Frank House (Amsterdam). The official opening of the exhibition will take place on December 9 in honor of International Human Rights Day. The exhibit will then travel to several Ukrainian cities.
