Mr. Andrey Manchenkov, former deputy head of the National Emergency Management Center of the Russian Federation Ministry of Emergency Situations, is the new co-director of the Russian-Serbian Humanitarian Center. The new Russian-Serbian Humanitarian Center co-director was introduced today at the reception with Nis City Deputy Mayor Milos Bandjur at City Hall, and the meeting was attended by Vladimir Solovjov, Head of the Department for International Cooperation of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations. 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
