Participation in the conference of scientists, ethnographers, statesmen and public figures of the Penza region from foreign countries and many regions of our country testifies to the high interest in the life and work of our outstanding compatriot. ”
Acting Head of the subject of the Russian Federation noted the outstanding contribution of Edgem Tenishev to science:
“The anniversary of Edkhyam Rakhimovich Tenishev is a great event for the region. He wrote more than 300 works on Turkic studies, this is a huge work. He devoted his whole life to science. And today’s conference has brought together a large number of scientists. I think holding such events deserves support and development. I am grateful to the Tatar National-Cultural Autonomy for the initiative. This conference is a good basis for the development and support of the traditions of the Turkic peoples ”.
