Largest museum-reserve over the Urals welcomes delegates of the BRICS Global Media Tour. Russian Edition

TVBRICS – Delegates of the BRICS Global Media Tour. Russian Edition visited the largest museum-reserve over the Urals “Tomskaya Pisanitsa”, a unique complex of history and culture of the peoples of Eurasia, located in Yashkinskiy district of Kemerovskaya oblast near the village of Pisanaya. It covers an area of 156 hectares.

“The essence of journalism is getting more and more lost because of the internet, many reporters do not go to the location, do not attend the events. However, it is important for journalists to be present at the epicentre of what is happening, to see, touch, feel everything that is happening in order to be able to report accurately, with responsibility. That’s why it’s so important the integration of TV BRICS with the radio and TV stations in Brazil, China, Russia, South Africa and India. It is very important for us, the journalists from the other five countries, to be able to visit the Russian Federation,” said Marcio Campos Dias
Editor-in-Chief of the Brazilian TV channel Terra Viva.

The basis of the Tomskaya Pisanitsa museum is the ancient monuments of rock art. The main, world famous exhibit is a huge rock, densely covered with drawings of ancient people. It rises above the right bank of the Tom River, so the scientists called the rock “Tomskaya Pisanitsa” which means (Tomsk drawings).

Members of the delegation learned about the everyday lives of the people who originally inhabited the Kemerovo land, and saw about 300 rock paintings, the oldest of which date back 4,000 years.

“Well, we are in a natural experience. We are learning how these people have been living for centuries. So they are demonstrating to us the story of Siberia and this region. Well, we used to be in towns where we visit museums, natural or national museums, but in towns it’s very different to find a museum in natural. You feel on your tongue, that you are dealing with something that was not processed, industrially” said Sergio Marcos Beatriz Chitsembe, a board member and TVM journalist from Mozambique.

Luiz Augusto de Freitas Erthal, editor-in-chief of the Brazilian newspaper Toda Palavra, also praised the museum-reserve: “It is an interesting park, a natural monument, a respectful tribute to the old Russian traditions, which is very important to maintain and preserve them. It deserves a wide popularity and fame”.

In addition, the participants of the media tour also took part in an archery shoot. Zhang Tianxiang, CEO of China.com, shared his experience.

“I really enjoyed it. It was my first time in the Siberian forest and my first time shooting a bow, and I realised what kind of strength the people of that time must have had. It was so hard to pull the string! Most of all, I was struck by the beauty of nature around me: forest, birds, animals. Of course, I was imbued with the culture of ancient Russia and nature, which is very energising. Some of the household items of the ancient Russian people really surprised me. I even asked my colleagues if there was an opportunity to buy some souvenirs. I would love to take them with me to China,” noted Zhang Tianxiang

Albert Mirirayi Chekayi, director of Zimbabwe’s ZBC news service, was so inspired by the trip that he said he would definitely come to Russia more than once.

“It’s my first time in Russia and Kemerovo, but definitely not my last year. I’m so much in love with this country, so much in love with this province, especially the way it is so natural. I really enjoyed the Russian natural drink, kvass, it feels like it gives you energy. I was impressed by the way the history is preserved, the way they narrate about history. Russian people are lovely and they love people, they welcome us with warmth. I’m sending pictures to my friends and say, this is Russia. You got to be here or you miss out. It’s beautiful.”

Durgesh Singh Bhadauria, senior producer of Asian News International (ANI), one of the largest news agencies in India and all over South Asia, mentioned that what he saw made a big impression on him.

“We were shown these rocks where this inscription, this carving was done about decades ago, and it is still intact there, which shows a lot of about the character of the people when they were there, because we were told that they used to climb down these rocks, not the up these rocks. So this speaks a lot about the spirit of the people who were here. I enjoyed it, I enjoyed the vibes here and it was a great experience,” he said.

The unique multi-purpose open-air museum Tomskaya Pisanitsa was established in accordance with a decree of the Council of Ministers of the RSFSR dated 16 February 1988. It is a world-known monument of primitive art.
