On September 18, the prestigious Kamani Auditorium in New Delhi hosted the Farewell ceremony “Sobraniye 2017” for the students departing to study in Russia. The function was organized jointly by the Russian Centre for Science and Culture in New Delhi (RCSC) and RusEducation company, and saw the presence of the Russian Embassy employees, Indian MEA and other government agencies’ officials, public figures and politicians, activists of friendship societies, alumni of Russian Universities, compatriots, future students, postgraduates and their parents.

G.V.Srinivas, JS (ERS), MEA, Government of India, pointed out that “today’s farewell ceremony for a large group of students departing to study in Russia enjoys the atmosphere of high spirits. We are heartened by the fact that the number of young Indian students travelling to Russia to get higher education has been constantly increasing. It is of utmost importance that this trend consolidated especially this year, the year of 70th anniversary of the establishment of bilateral relations”. Anatoly Kargapolov, Chargé D'affaires, a.i. of the Russian Embassy in India, noted, that “Moscow and New Delhi actively develop political engagement, we successfully cooperate in economic and many other spheres. Today’s “Sobraniye 2017” is a clear testimony of the fact that these fruitful relations has been developing gradually in the field of education as well. We can see how the Indian students are very much eager to go to Russia. It makes perfect sense, cause our Higher School has preserved the best Soviet practices and traditions while having been successfully integrated into the modern global educational system. It makes Russian education very attractive for young Indians”.
