Crimean Tatar craftsman, ceramic master Rustem Skibin initiates creation of Crimean Tatar craft cultural center in Kyiv.

Activity of the center will be focused on popularization of Crimean Tatar national handcraft. According to Skibin, the priority task is to create a gallery to display works of Crimean Tatar craftsmen, still the items are yet to be collected.

For now, the center is conducting the lectures, masterclasses and exhibitions to popularize Crimean Tatar art.

We have already conducted 15 events, among them lectures. Some universities and cultural centers even asked us to hold the lectures.

Skibin also said he is to combine efforts with Crimean Tatar association in Kyiv to promote Crimean Tatar culture in Ukraine.
