Kharkiv is home to representatives of 111 nationalities and ethnic groups. We have 65 ethnic and cultural associations the activities of which cover over 25% of the city population. Every year the city hosts ‘Kharkiv – Our Home’ Festival of National Cultures. Interethnic tolerance in our city is a unique heritage which we received from previous generations living in this area. Mayor Gennadiy Kernes and Kharkiv City Council do their best to maintain and strengthen the friendship and understanding between the representatives of various nationalities and ethnic groups living peacefully in Kharkiv.
