The Russian language, cultural and educational center was opened in China thanks to the cooperation of the Southern Federal University (SFedU) from Rostov-on-Don and the Yonghe Gushi Secondary School of Henan Province. The center is meant to help Chinese students learn the Russian language and enter Russian universities, ROSTOF.RU reports.

SFedU Rector Inna Shevchenko called the opening of the center an important event for strengthening friendship and cooperation in the scientific and educational spheres. 

The center will organize pre-university courses for foreign applicants of SFedU. After successfully completing Russian language courses and passing exams, they will be able to enroll in a bachelor's degree program at Rostov University and other Russian universities.

Shevchenko emphasized that the university continues to develop cooperation with China and plans to hold joint summer schools, seminars, scientific conferences offline and online.

Emigrants founded clubs, played at packed stadiums as if they had been sports superstars, and led teams to championships as coaches and managers. Sports clubs are still established by our compatriots today.
A bear dressed in kosovorotka and bast shoes playing balalaika is one of the strongest Russian stereotypes.

In contrast, the balalaika has won its unique place not only on concert posters but also at an international stage, in concert halls, jazz and rock clubs.
