The message reads, in part:
“Your whole life is closely linked with one of the oldest universities in Russia – Lomonosov Moscow State University. Thanks largely to your academic authority, your outstanding organisational skills and commitment to innovation, MSU is developing dynamically, adding to the best traditions of national fundamental education. It is a widely recognised centre of attraction for talented young people.
Of course, I would also like to note your highly sought research and outstanding public activities aimed at strengthening the great potential of Russian higher education and improving international humanitarian cooperation.”
