Moscow Twin Festival

MOSCOW -- Moscow will play host to more than 4,000 sets of twins from nine countries at a six-day festival in March, Itar-Tass reported Friday.

Organizer Marina Parusnikova said the aim was "to penetrate the difficult spiritual world of twins and demonstrate their psychological peculiarities." Russia, which has 2 million of the world's estimated population of 60 million twins, staged similar festivals in 1990 and 1991.

Prizes will be awarded to achievers in the fields of science, culture, art, sports and business, Parusnikova said.
