Video confirming the text of the quote:
This time the video is recorded in English, so it is included in the article. — Виктор Пинчук (talk) 14:46, 9 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

  • I don't know Viktor. I can't access a single one of the source articles. The last paragraph is you summarising YOUR book, covering some things YOU wrote, within an article about an event where you were the speaker and the people came to hear you speak and you wrote the article for Russian WN -- the level of naval gazing here is astronomical. I like your photos and the whole travelogue thing here is clever and I like it, on a personal level -- but we just have to have some outside inputs (to a minimal degree at least) to establish what is happening here. In terms of credibility, we just keep stretching things here to a pretty severe degree. Are there any English (U.S., or UK, maybe) source articles you could use to beef this up a bit?--Bddpaux (talk) 16:27, 9 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
Unfortunately, there are no sources in English, and this is understandable. If I lived in Fiji, Egypt or India — every third person there speaks English; They sell books and newspapers in English. In Russia, the press does not cover events in English..
The last paragraph is a quote from the author of the book and I, as a Wikinews journalist, quote it verbatim without changing it.
I added 5 more sources, but all in Russian. If previous sources do not open or have other problems, I will remove them.
The text of the quote can be removed from the article (if desired) because it duplicates the quote in the video format.
The last link is the official website of the library, an important source from the event organizer, which contains information about the past event: a report and many photographs. Doesn't it open?— Виктор Пинчук (talk) 18:19, 9 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
P.S. Two more links:пригашаем-на-презентацию-книги-крымс/ (official website of the Crimean government) (announcement on the official account of the Youth Library) Add to article? — Виктор Пинчук (talk) 04:50, 10 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
