On May 21 the new lineup of the Russian Cabinet was announced. Dmitry Livanov, who for the past five years has served as rector of the National University of Science and Technology MISiS, was appointed Minister of Education and Science.

The Student’s Day celebrated on January 25 appeared in Russia back in the 19th century when Nicholas I decided to celebrate the decision to open the Moscow University on January 25, 1755 as the Student’s Day. In 2006 Tatiana’s Day was proclaimed the Day of Russian Students and a national holiday, even though it remained a business day – perhaps because the business days of students do not resemble holidays. Many experts of the education market admit that the ubiquitous brain drain has come down from the academic realm to the level of studentship. It has become fashionable to earn degrees abroad or to get a double...

The Lyceum Day celebrated on October 19 – an informal holiday of Russian culture – excites provocative emotions. We wonder, whether Alexander Pushkin, a graduate of Tsarskoye Selo Lyceum, could study in its modern-day prototype (a private lyceum)? Most likely he would escape from such an institution, believes Vladimir Emelyanenko, a columnist of Russkiy Mir. His poetic soul would not stand the transformation of private education into a lucrative business. A historic parallel could be spectacular indeed, but alas! October 19, 2011, marked the 200th anniversary of the Imperial Lyceum and 200th anniversary of private education in...

Fifty years ago, June 6, 1961, the Agreement on Friendship, Cooperation and Mutual Assistance between the USSR and the People’s Democratic Republic of Korea (North Korea) was signed. Russia unilaterally pulled out of the agreement in the 1990s, and it rarely gets mentioned today. Nonetheless, new progress is being made in relations between these two countries. A decade ago, in August 2001, Kim Jong-Il made his historic visit to Russia. We spoke with Georgy Toloraya, Director of Regional Programs at the Russkiy Mir Foundation and a North Korea expert, about how the ten-year anniversary of this event will be celebrated. – There are...
