Moscow (VNA) – Vietnamese students staged a performance opening an outdoor musical event in Sochi, Russia, on October 20, as part of the ongoing 19th World Festival of Youth and Students.

The performers wearing ao dai (traditional Vietnamese dress) received loud applauses from the audience.

Since the early days of the festival, the students have run a Vietnamese space, which promotes the country’s signatures and goods, as well as provides information on Vietnam in Russian and English.

Lasting from October 15 to 22, the festival draws nearly 50,000 delegates, compared to the initial estimation of 20,000.

Up to 5,000 volunteers, including 314 foreigners, were mobilised to support delegates.-VNA
