    Background: Celebration to mark the 50th anniversary of Moldavian, Turkmen, Uzbek, Tajik and Kirghiz constituent republics took place in Moscow at the National Exhibition of Economic Achievements on August 18.
    Amateur performers from different republics appeared before numerous spectators in the Exhibition's Druzhba Narodov (Friendship of Nations) Square. This was their final show after a three-months-long performing art contest that had been held on the open-air stages here at the Exhibition.
    800 amateur performers from all constituent republics took part in this show.
    These young dancers from Moldavia as all the participants wear their national costumes. One can easily imagine the riot of colours at the festival if one knows that there are more than 100 different nationalities that make up the USSR's 15 republics.
    The Song of Homeland sang by all the participants concluded this festival symbolic of the unity of all nationalities of the Soviet Union.
