"Graduation is certainly an important event in a young person's life. I hope that the knowledge that you have acquired at IIRWH will help you in your future life, and the experience that you have gained during the study will be successfully applied in the countries where you will return. Over the years, you got to know Russia and the language and mentality of our country, and I hope that you enjoyed it. We, in turn, always try to maintain a warm relationship with all of our graduates. I congratulate you and wish you every success in your future lives and careers! "
Eight international students received their diplomas from Lobachevsky University, and four of them graduated with honours.
