China's first Russian Center celebrates anniversary


Russian Center started its work at Beijing Foreign Studies University (BFSU) 10 years ago. It is one of the best higher educational institutions in China.

Over the years of work, an active intellectual and educational platform was created thanks to the efforts of Chinese Russianists, operating with the support of Russkiy Mir Foundation. Beijing Russian Center regularly hosts scientific and student conferences, round tables, seminars for Russian teachers, exhibitions and meetings with interesting people. Scientists from Russia and other countries, diplomats and writers perform there.


BFSU students study Russian language diligently, learn about the history and culture of Russia, discuss Russian politics and current Russian-Chinese relations. Russian Center holds quizzes on the knowledge of Russian language, in which schoolchildren from Beijing schools also take part. The training is designed for active mastering of lively Russian speech. Competitions on oratorical skills and declamations are regularly held, students participate in theatrical performances and Russian holidays.

On the anniversary, Executive Director of Russkiy Mir Foundation Vladimir Kochin sent a congratulatory message to Rector of BFSU, Professor Peng Lun. He noted that the events held at Russian Center “bring our peoples together and give the students an opportunity to learn more about Russia, its history, cultural traditions and customs of Russian people."
