The chairman of the public council "Friendship" Badrudin Ibragimov in particular noted: "Easter is one of the most important religious fests celebrated by the public council. The Armenian Easter is called "Zatik", which means "liberation" and "purification".
The holiday symbolizes the deliverance from sins and the return to God. An unusual tradition is to sanctify trees, held by elderly Armenians on Easter morning with a candle in their hands. Also on this day, the Armenians traditionally have a pilaf and colored eggs on the festive table. So, the guests and the participants can get acquainted more closely with other festive traditions."
The event ended with an awarding ceremony of the most active representatives of the regional Armenian Cultural Center.
