“Teacher for Russia” Today and Tomorrow 17.11.2017The idea for the Teacher for Russia program originated with two graduates from Saint Petersburg State University, Alena Makovich and Elena Yarmanova after they came across Teach for All, a major international network of nongovernmental social enterprises. Four years have passed since then, and this year the Russian program celebrated its first graduating class.

UN court rejects Kiev’s claims about Russian aggression
It is extremely important that International court of Justice did not support Kiev claims about so-called Russian aggression or occupation, as per Russian Foreign Ministry. The Hague court considered them irrelevant, TASS informs.
Russian diplomacy office added that there was no need to bring to a vote Ukraine’s statements that Moscow financed terrorism, as they did not have any grounds.
Moreover, Ukraine’s claims that Moscow is eliminating cultural identity of Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar communities were not supported too.
The UN court has accepted the decision about three temporary measures according to International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination. One of them concerns availability of education in the Ukrainian language, the second one is about possibilities of Crimean Tatars to have their own representative institutions and the third one addressed to Ukraine and Russia forbids any actions leading to deterioration of the conflict situation.
It is worth reminding that hearings of the case by Kiev against Moscow started in Hague at the beginning of March. Ukraine accused Russia of sponsoring terrorism and demanded to stop supporting Donetsk and Lugansk. Another demand concerned compensation for the hit plane over Donbass and shooting attack against civil population.
