These are books from publishing houses 'Kuchkovo Pole', 'Political Encyclopedia', 'Historical Literature', and 'Veche'. Some of the books are published with the support of The History of the Fatherland Foundation. The following editions: The Saved World Remembers.... Congratulatory telegrams and messages to the Soviet people. 1941–1945 (published by the 'Link of Epochs' Foundation), The Atomic Era of Russian Aviation (Stolichnaya Encyclopedia Publishing House), The Russian idea in national spiritual quest (from the birth of Rus' to the 19th century) by Andrei Loginov ('Russkiy Put' Publishing House), the album Gagarin — the first! by Victor Taran ('Russkiye Vityazi' Publishers), and Peter the Great.

Chairman of the Russian Historical Society Board and Executive Director of the History of the Fatherland Foundation Konstantin Mogilevsky; Director of the Institute of International Relations of Kazan Federal University and Chairman of the Russian Historical Society Office in the Republic of Tatarstan Ramil Khairutdinov; Vice-Rector of the Russian State Humanitarian University and Academic Supervisor of the 'My Country — My Russia' All-Russian competition Larisa Pastukhova are taking part in the presentations of new historical books from Russian publishing houses. Participants talk about the key book novelties of the Russian market of historical literature, dedicated to prominent Soviet and Russian figures of science and culture, inventors, patrons, leaders of the Soviet state, as well as the events of the Great Patriotic War. We can say with certainty that the books presented do not contain speculation or distortion, but only an accurate and truthful reflection of history.

Mikhail Wiesel, editor-in-chief of GodLiteratury.ru, Moscow journalist and translator, presents his book Pushkin. Boldino. Quarantine. Flipping through the calendar of Boldino Autumn, the author parses letters sent by Pushkin from his Nizhny Novgorod estate to his bride, friends and business associates.

The historical events also form the basis of a new children's book, which Mikhail Wiesel presents at the Eurasian Fair: Engineer Termen's Voxrecorder. This fantasy comic strip, drawn by Russian comic book pioneer Alexei 'Kapyninsky,' tells the story of today's teenagers, Peter the Great, Peter II, Lefort and the Dolgorukys — and how, in one palace on the Yauza bank, Russia's fate changed dramatically three times in thirty-two years, until it became what we know it. The publication is timed to coincide with the 350th anniversary of the birth of the first Russian emperor.

A full program of events is available online at mibf.info/nursultan2022.
