The Russian-Chinese educational center began to operate on the territory of the Greenwood Business Park, located outside the Moscow Ring Road. The founders of the center are the Russian University of Transport (RUT) and the Eurasia International Corporation. The educational center will allow students from China studying in the main transport university of Russia to improve their knowledge of the Russian language and to replenish knowledge in other disciplines, Gudok.ru reports

The opening ceremony of the center was attended by the leaders of the Russian university, representatives of Chinese business in Russia, as well as Vice Governor of Henan Province Ho Jinzua. According to her, the opening of the center was another step towards the rapprochement of the two countries and the solution of tasks set by the heads of Russia and China.

RUT has long and fruitfully collaborated with relevant universities in China. At present, 36 agreements on cooperation between the Russian university and educational institutions of China are in force, seven of which involve a double diploma program. RUT conducts joint research activities with a number of universities.

The educational center is designed to help Chinese students who come to Russia for exchange, as well as for bachelor's and master's programs in RUT. In the new center, students will attend classes in the Russian language, and from the second half of the year they will become students of courses in physics, mathematics and computer science.

Anna Kurumchina, director of the Agency for Cultural and Science Diplomacy (Yekaterinburg) and the organizer of the exhibition, shared the details of the international project.
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.
