The message reads, in part:
“Over the years, the University has come a long way towards fulfilling its creative and constructive agenda, and has earned well-deserved prestige as a major educational, research and methodology centre. The school takes rightful pride in its strong traditions, its experienced and enthusiastic teachers and, of course, its talented students. It has fostered an entire constellation of prominent scholars and public figures, politicians and diplomats, and employees of international organisations. Largely thanks to its solid research base and the most up-to-date teaching methods, Moscow State Linguistic University has been awarded the status of the Basic Educational Institution for Languages and Culture of the CIS Member States by the decision of the Council of CIS Heads of Government.
I am confident that, while maintaining the connection between generations and openness to everything new, the University will continue to grow and make a significant contribution to strengthening the remarkable potential of the national higher education in humanities.”
