The tradition to create between the cities official of the Commonwealth, the so-called blood-brotherhood was born in 1944. Then the inhabitants of the English city of Coventry was prepared for Stalingrad tablecloth, and on it was embroidered “Better little help than great regret.” In the cloth they wrapped the whole town collected money and sent it all through the Soviet Embassy in London in war-torn Stalingrad. Since then, the city began to fraternize. On the official level, this means the exchange of cultural delegations, exhibitions and sporting events.

– I’m very hurt that such a thing happened, – said “MK” born in Ukrainian Odessa, the famous Director, people’s artist of Russia Iosif Raihelgauz. – I think that to blame the propaganda machine of Russia and Ukraine. So-called journalists, mostly television, of course. On all these talk shows — a lot of them I see on our, and on the Ukrainian channels — they are inciting ethnic hatred. I would and those and others have called for criminal responsibility for it. All done, of course, with the filing of politicians. That can’t develop culture in the broadest sense of the word — to develop the economy, agriculture, education, and all those holes in his work to justify the presence of enemies. They most of these enemies materialize. It is a great misfortune of our friendly Nations.

By the WAY, a sister city of Odessa, in addition to a number of different major ports, remains in the Russian city of Rostov. Moreover, and Odessa, and Rostov didn’t want to deprive the titles of the twin cities. But whatever it was, forever will remain two inseparable expressions of folk – Rostov-daddy and Odessa-Mama.
