Discover a kaleidoscope of humanity in RTD’s Peoples of Russia documentaries
As one of the most ethnically-diverse countries in the world, Russia can boast over 180 defined ethnic groups. The numbers vary from the millions of ethnic Russians, to a few thousand Sami in the Arctic, to a handful of Kereks in the Far East. All of these groups bring their own language and traditions to add to the multiculturalism of modern Russia. Their history, customs and lifestyle are examined in RTD’s Peoples of Russia documentaries. These films give a glimpse of the struggle these cultures are enduring against assimilation in the 21st century.
