Young foreign scientists will obtain grants of National Research University Higher School of Economics (HSE). The university established an award named by young scientist Dmitry Semenov, who set up a University Development laboratory in HSE and died tragically. The award implies an internship in the laboratory and participation in joint projects with HSE. Grants will be awarded twice a year, TASS informs.

The applications for Semyonov Award in field of education are already being accepted. Masters and graduate students from foreign countries may apply. First winners will be announced within upcoming months. HSE intends to invite two foreign researchers for 3 to 8 week internship in the middle or second half of 2019.

The internship participants will attend seminars and summer schools, and will have a chance to study the large data about Russian education. HSE press office reported that the main goal of Semyonov Award is providing support for international exchange and joint research work.

As Russkiy Mir reported, Russian President Vladimir Putin encouraged Russian scientists to collaborate with all interested countries during his meeting with Head of Russian Academy of Sciences Alexander Sergeev in January 2019. Along with this, Putin noted that the collaboration must be equally valuable.

Since the beginning of the unrest in Kazakhstan, some media and Telegram channels have speculated about the threat to Russians living in the Republic. Allegedly, the introduction of CSTO forces would put them in danger due to the rise of Kazakh nationalism. Izvestia talked to Russians living in the country to find out how the January events had affected their relations with Kazakhs. Interviewees claimed that the introduction of CSTO peacekeepers had no effect on interethnic dialogue because the Russians living in the Republic were not associated with Russia - they were locals. However, according to Izvestia's interlocutors, there is still intolerance at the mundane level.
