According to the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan on November 1, 2019, a presentation of the book of the President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov “Türkmen alabaýy” (“Turkmen Alabay”) and the opening ceremony of the exhibition “Turkmenistan - Homeland of Prosperity” took place in St. Petersburg.

The event, supported by the Embassy of Turkmenistan in the Russian Federation, was organized by the branch of the Humanitarian Association of the World Turkmens in St. Petersburg and the Mekan Society of Turkmen Culture in St. Petersburg.

In the speeches, it was emphasized that the new work of the President of Turkmenistan, dedicated to the Turkmen alabay, clearly reveals the nature and significance of this breed of dog, which for many millennia has been faithful companions of the Turkmens. The book "Türkmen alabaýy" does not just tell about the origin and the development of the famous dog breed, one of the oldest in the world, but the Alabai cultural phenomenon reveals itself, standing on a par with such national symbols as the Akhal-Teke horse and carpet.

The exhibition “Turkmenistan - Homeland of Prosperity” was launched in the lobby of the Historical Park “Russia - My History”, including books about Turkmenistan, works by Turkmen artists, national costumes, and jewelry made by Turkmen artists. Also on large screens was broadcasting videos about the achievements of modern Turkmenistan.
