The fact that a person belongs to another nationality should not interfere with good relations with him. It was in order to remind about this, and the Day of Friendship was introduced.
Holidays that have a similar meaning. Day dedicated to the friendship of the Slavic peoples
Shortly before it began to celebrateInternational Day of Friendship, another similar holiday was introduced. It has a similar meaning - on this day the Slavs are reminded of their common roots, that they should be friendly and united. It is celebrated on June 25 and is especially relevant in light of the events that are taking place in Ukraine.
It began to be celebrated in the 90s of the 20th century. It was at this time that the USSR collapsed, and many independent Slavic states appeared. They needed to establish friendly relations between them. In the 90s, another Slavic state, Yugoslavia, collapsed. Therefore, the introduction of the Day of Unification of the Slavs had a special meaning.
The day was introduced in order for the Slavic countriesremembered their past, preserved their culture and communication with each other, which lasted for many centuries. The most significant steps for unification were undertaken by Belarus and Russia. Our countries cooperate in many spheres. Especially widely the holiday is celebrated in these countries and in Ukraine. Despite the disagreements that have arisen between the leadership of our country and Ukraine, the people still remain close because of similar traditions and customs, common roots and should not be at enmity.

Friendship has always been the main moral andspiritual value. For many, it has always been considered and is still considered a mythical concept, gone into the distant past and into the field of stereotypes. For example, according to many, there can not be friendship between women.
