On May 12, 2021 in Moscow on the occasion of the 110th anniversary of the People's Poet, Hero of the Republic of Tajikistan Mirzo Tursunzade was held a memorial evening.

In his opening speech, the Ambassador of Tajikistan to Russia Imomuddin Sattorov noted that this year, on the instructions of the Leader of the Nation, President Emomali Rahmon, the 110th anniversary of Ustad Mirzo Tursunzade will be celebrated in the framework of the 30th anniversary of Tajikistan's independence. In this regard, various cultural events are planned to be held in the country on the occasion of the creativity and activity of this outstanding son of the Tajik people.

?. Sattorov reminded that over the centuries, the land of Tajiks has given birth to many poets, writers and heroes, whose names are immortalized in the history of not only Tajik and Persian literature, but also world literature. “From the very beginning of its rule, our ancestral land has been able to present itself to the world as a civilized country with a rich ancient identity and culture. The history of Tajik culture and literature has a long history and has gone through many complex paths over the centuries. However, in spite of all these difficulties, it has always remained the same and to this day provides a favorable environment for the understanding of human values - honesty, courage, foresight, generosity and friendship.

An example of this is the life and exemplary work of one of the representatives of modern Tajik literature, Ustad Mirzo Tursunzade. Mirzo Tursunzade has made a great contribution to the development of literature and culture of the Tajik people, ”said the head of the diplomatic mission of Tajikistan.

It was noted that the style of poetry of M. Tursunzade stems from the fact that he fully enjoyed the classical Tajik literature and other peoples of the world, and as a result of extensive reading has acquired high poetic skills and created Tajik poetry.

He spoke about the extensive cultural and humanitarian ties between Tajikistan and Russia, emphasizing the important role of uniting classical and modern Tajik literature.

The Director General of the Library of Foreign Literature Pavel Kuzmin read a congratulatory message from the Deputy Minister of Culture of the Russian Federation Olga Yarilova.
