I have been cooperating with the ministry since the creation of this structure. On December 4, 1991, the Committee on Interethnic Relations under the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Kazakhstan was formed, which began its activity in March 1992. And already in March 1992, together with the Deputy Chairman of the Committee, Viktor Nikolayevich Birin, participated in the project “Karelians and Finns in Russia”. As a result of the project, a collection of articles was published in Moscow. In it, I published an article “Resettlement of Ingrian residents to Karelia at the end of the 1940s.” So my cooperation with Minnats goes back almost 30 years
