First Russian International School named after Valentina Tereshkova is opened in Belgrade. The school founder Sasha Boroevich and director Elena Elnatanova cut the red ribbon at the ceremonial event.

Some part of the school premises was given by the neighbouring school Artmedia.

In his speech Sasha Boroevich marked that in a course of last years several international schools were opened, such as Turkish, British, German and now Russian school. Until now there was only single Russian school of the Embassy with very limited number of places.

First Russian International School named after Valentina Tereshkova is a big step towards the cooperation in education field between Serbia and Russia.

The question, “What are you, illiterate?” has long been regarded as ironic. Indeed, some may be more capable than others, but everyone in Russia can read and write, so no one would ever think of patting themselves on the back for it. International Literacy Day is celebrated right between Knowledge Day (1 September) and World Teachers’ Day (5 October). Perhaps this is why this holiday isn’t very widely celebrated in Russia.
The new law “On Education” passed by the Ukrainian parliament essentially forbids citizens from receiving an education in any language other than Ukrainian. Beginning on 1 September 2018, students will only be able to study in Russian or the languages of other national minorities before the fifth grade. And beginning in 2020, Russian, Hungarian, Romanian, and other languages will be removed from the lower grades as well. Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Russkiy Mir Foundation, Vyacheslav Nikonov, reflects on how this trend meshes with Ukraine’s attempt to become a full-fledged European country.
