Nis City Mayor Darko Bulatovic met with new Ambassador of France to Serbia Mr. Jean Louis Falconi on the occasion of the Ambassador’s visit to Nis. During the discussions the special emphasis was put on the realization of the project of archeological research of the city field and Nis Fortress, which included experts from France, more specifically from the city of Arles, which has been cooperating with Nis for several years. Ambassador Falconi said his first visit to Nis was motivated by cultural-university co-operation between the two countries and that he would attend the conference of university departments for French language in Serbia. He would also visit secondary grammar school Svetozar Markovic and its bilingual French Serbian class. Later that day Ambassador Falconi also opened the exhibition entitled France emotion at Nis National Library. The international exhibition France eMotion, created by the tourism and culture cluster Atout France in partnership with the French Institute, takes the viewer on a unique walk into exploring French cultural heritage, at the intersection of photography, augmented reality and digital animation. The exhibition is being held within the “Digital November” organized by the French Institute.

Manchenkov stressed that there was a firm conviction of the Russian side in the further successful work of the center and in the introduction of new elements in its work. “At my meetings at the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Belgrade and the Embassy of the Russian Federation I was welcomed with positive prospects for the future. There have been many compliments for everything that the center has done so far,” Manchenkov said. Solovjov said on this occasion that the Russian-Serbian Humanitarian Center differed from many ministries and institutions precisely in that it dealt with the rescue and safety of people regardless of political views and skin color. “We believe that the center has a great future perspective because its primary goal is to save and protect people, not only in the Nis city area, but wherever it is needed,” said Solovjov. The Delegations from Russian-Serbian Humanitarian Center and the City of Nis laid wreaths on the monument to fallen Russian pilots at the Memorial Complex of Former Concentration Camp Crveni Krst
