(Minghui.org) Practitioners from Russia introduced Falun Gong during a celebration held in the spa city of Kislovodsk on September 15, 2019. Many people heard the soothing music and stopped to watch the exercise demonstration. They learned about Falun Gong and the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution of practitioners in China.

Passersby accept information about Falun Gong.

In addition to the exercise demonstration, practitioners performed a fan dance and, as part of the Petals of Peace effort, invited people to make paper lotus flowers to express their support for Falun Gong practitioners in China. The guiding principles of Falun Gong, Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance, are universal. People throughout the world have condemned the CCP for attempting to stamp out these values.

Local residents and tourists said they would help spread the information and hoped that the persecution would soon end.
