    ASTANA, May 1, (RIA Novosti) - Kazakhstan, which is a Central Asian republic where representatives of more than 120 nations and ethnic groups live, is celebrating National Unity Day May 1.

    Regional festivals were organized on the threshold of May Day with the help of the Assembly of Kazakh Nations, involving more than 500,000 people this year.

    The Congress Hall building in Astana, which is the republic's new capital, is to host the final gala concert of the fifth republican people's friendship anniversary.

    Kazakhstan boasts national-culture associations, national theaters, studios and folk-art groups. For instance, Russian theaters account for 15 of the republic's 49 theaters. Uighurs, Germans and Koreans all have their own theater troupes.

    Four national-language newspapers, i.e. the Korean-language Kore Ilbo, the German-language Deutsche Algemeine Zeitung, the Ukrainian-language Ukrainski Novini and the Uighur-language Uighur Avazi, are printed in Kazakhstan with state assistance. 15 regional ethnic-language newspapers also come off the press, what with seven radio stations broadcasting in seven Kazakh ethnic-group languages.
