The representatives of the Russian State Pedagogical University Herzen from St. Petersburg and the University of Nis met at the Nis City Hall in order to keep the Russian language in primary and secondary schools in Nis, but also in order to facilitate holding lectures in the Russian language. The two universities will jointly implement the project, which will be funded by the Russian side. The idea for this project came from the state level, and Nis was selected to be the representative of the Serbian side, said Deputy Mayor Milos Bandjur. He said the Russian side was ready to fund the project as a whole. The Deputy Mayor said that the content and the manner of implementation would be defined in the coming period. He pointed out that the need for learning Russian language was increasing. In continuation of the visit to Nis, the delegation laid flowers on the monument to the Russian pilots killed in World War II, and then visited the Museum of Former Concentration Camp Crveni Krst and the Skull Tower memorial complex.
