    * The 20-th international Moscow festival of movies for children and teenagers is to close at the local Cinema House. Festival results will be announced and prizes awarded. A new film by Andrei Proshkin, i.e. "Butterfly Games", will be shown after the ceremony.

    * An international men's handball tournament for the Moscow-region governor cup is to open at the Olympic sports complex in the town of Chekhov, Moscow region.


    * The birth anniversary of great Russian ballerina Galina Ulanova (1909-1989) will be marked here today. A monument to Ulanova will be unveiled in an impressive setting at the courtyard of the Russian ballet academy. Ulanova graduated on top of her class from this academy.


    * A delegation of Finnish and Estonian doctors is to arrive in Karelia, a federal republic in European Russia's north-western region, analyzing the local diabetes-prevention experience. The delegation's visit is timed to coincide with the beginning of the Fin-Est-Karelia international research project. Doctors, who are involved in this project, will try and explain low diabetes-incidence rates in the Karelia republic; by the way, neighboring Finland has 200 percent more diabetes sufferers than Karelia does.
