Ilsur Metshin comments on the opening ceremony of the Universiade-2013
ceremony of XXVII World Student Games in Kazan was similar to an accounting
concert of Russian culture, not Kazan, Tatarstan. 182 nationalities were walking
along the central stadium and they have shown a multinational Russia to the
whole world. Anyone who watched the ceremony felt that we are proud of our city
and our country. Do you remember Rodnina’s tears at the Olympics after winning?
The same emotional tears of pride were for our city and republic. It is not just
high words, I say that we have experienced.
