The delegation of Russian University visited chemical laboratories, learned about the advanced developments of scientists in field of chemistry, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and the features of training students and undergraduates.

Guests from Russia explained that they managed to find several points of intersection of interests. They expressed hope that the cooperation of scientists of the two countries will continue in the future. MUCTR is convinced that the experience of DTU will allow to enhance the position of Mendeleev University in international rankings.

The UN General Assembly declared 2019 the International Year of Mendeleev’s Periodic Table. Various events dedicated to the 150th anniversary of the Mendeleev Periodic Table will be held in honor of famous scientist in Russia.  

The Year of the Periodic Table will contribute to enhancing the prestige of Russian science abroad and achieving the goals of the Science national project. 

February 8 marked 185 years since the birth of great scientist Dmitri Mendeleev. His name was glorified by the discovery of periodic law, but he was an encyclopaedist scholar. Along with chemistry, he was interested in economics, physics, geology, meteorology, and designing instruments.

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.
