In the historic Brooklyn Borough Hall (Brooklyn Borough Hall), an award ceremony was held for representatives of the New York Russian-American community with honorary diplomas of President Brooklyn Eric Adams (Eric L. Adams, Brooklyn Borough President).
This solemn event has become traditional for the festival of Russian culture "Our Heritage", held by the Russian-American Foundation (Russian American Foundation) with the support of one of the most widely read American newspapers New York Post (New York Post).
The ceremony took place in Brooklyn Borough Hall, a monument of American architecture, which was built in 1848 to house the Brooklyn City Hall. Now it is mainly used for important social events. On June 20, representatives of the New York Russian-American community gathered here to attend the awards ceremony.

Jose Valencia (Jose Valencia), in the past - one of the leaders of NYANA (New York Association for New Americans). In his response, he told us what path he has traveled since he arrived in the United States forty years ago. Mr. Valencia worked for many years at NYANA, which dealt with the adaptation of third and fourth wave Russian-speaking immigrants to refugees from the USSR, helping with accommodation, language courses and employment. As president of ASA College, Mr. Valencia and now helps newcomers: about 20 percent of college students are Russian speaking immigrants from the CIS countries.
Gratitude from the President of Brooklyn was received by NYPD sergeant Dmitry Zabrovsky, chairman of the Association of Russian-speaking police officers in New York (Russian American Officers' Association). Dmitry said that when he came to work at the police, his colleagues met him wary. The Russian-speaking community enjoyed a dubious reputation at NYPD. Over time, the Russian-speaking police have proven their best side. Now they are valued in the service, they assign the most difficult tasks. They have a rapid career growth. As a result, it is Russian-speaking officers who are given responsible and most prestigious appointments. The association of Russian-speaking policemen aims to destroy negative stereotypes associated with our community. Now in the "Russian-American officers' club" about sixty people from the NYPD and other law enforcement agencies.
The businessman and restaurateur Marat Novikov, a native of Minsk, the founder of Desly International, who supplies New York Russian stores, the owner of the recently opened popular Belarusskaya Khata restaurant on Sheepsheed. Marat came to the awards ceremony with his grandson. They were photographed together. It was obvious that his grandson was proud of his grandfather, and his grandfather was a grandson to whom he would someday pass on this business.

Although respected restaurateurs were not so verbose at the awards ceremony, they were happy to feed all the honored guests with their favorite dishes. After the official part, the guests descended into the rotunda, where by that time the buffet tables were laid.
