On Wednesday, November 8, 2023, Governor Dmitry Azarov, head of Rossotrudnichestvo Yevgeny Primakov, as well as students and young scientists of Samara University opened the Regional Centre for Development of Public Diplomacy and International Relations named after Yevgeniy M. Primakov. It was established on the basis of the university.
I am very glad that the memory of Yevgeny M. Primakov is carefully preserved here. Thanks to wonderful young people, students and teachers, the sphere to which Yevgeny M. paid great attention throughout his life is developing, – said Dmitry Azarov.
Today the center has 7 clubs where students get acquainted with the culture of countries, meet Russian and foreign experts and study foreign language. In addition, there is an exposition dedicated to Yevgeniy Primakov. Thanks to copies of documents and photographs, students can learn a lot about the life and work of the outstanding statesman.
“I am incredibly touched. Probably one of the best ways to keep the memory of Yevgeniy M. alive is to create scientific institutes, classrooms, scholarships – things that are dedicated to students who study and master the sciences,” shared Yevgeny Primakov, grandson of the famous diplomat.
On the same day, Rossotrudnichestvo and Samara University signed a bilateral agreement. According to the university’s rector, Vladimir Bogatyrev, the cooperation will open new opportunities for the university.
