“The trip was very productive. Students, lecturers, and university administrators are motivated for long-term cooperation with Ural Federal University in the development of natural, exact, and mathematical sciences. The universities are waiting for Russian specialists, many students want to continue their studies in Russia. Four students from Slavonic University – a physicist, a chemist, and two biologists – have already come to our university for one semester and are studying in their respective fields. Our students are invited to practice in the Ramit State Nature Reserve of Tajikistan, where they will be able to study the species diversity of flora and fauna. This is really a great opportunity for biologists,” says Svetlana Zimnitskaya, associate professor of the Faculty of Biology and Fundamental Medicine and Director of the Institute of Natural Sciences and Mathematics Bachelor’s Degree School.

An Agreement on the Development of Cooperation was reached through the visit of a delegation of the university to Tajikistan. It took place on March 9-12.
