During an official visit of the President of Ukraine to the State of Qatar, First Lady Olena Zelenska visited the National Museum of Qatar, where on her initiative a Memorandum was signed on the introduction of the first Ukrainian-language audio guide in this country.
Such agreements were reached after talks between Olena Zelenska and Chairperson of Qatar Museums Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani.
"I want the Ukrainian language to be heard in historical landmarks wherever Ukrainians are. The introduction of the first Ukrainian-language audio guide in Qatar is a great step for our countries to get to know each other," said Olena Zelenska.
For her part, Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani supported the initiative of the wife of the President of Ukraine and expressed hope it would be only the first step in cooperation between the two countries.
"Your initiative prompted me to think that the Arabic language should be heard in most Ukrainian museums as well," Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani said.
In addition, the parties discussed a number of specific projects in the cultural sphere. In particular, the exchange of experience between employees of museum institutions of the two countries, holding joint events in Ukraine and the State of Qatar in the field of culture, art and fashion, as well as the introduction of online exhibitions that became relevant in times of COVID-19.
