The purpose of the project is to carry out expert monitoring of the world's basic trends, including the international political, trade, economic, energy and humanitarian components of the interaction between the states of the Great Silk Road.

Through the efforts of an international distributed team, including primarily students and teachers from leading universities of the participating countries, to create a modern encyclopedia of a unique multi-dimensional global historical, political, economic and cultural process, which was and will soon receive a new development of the grandiose trade route connecting East and West. The initial base of the project will be a three-dimensional digital relief model of the main routes of the Silk Road, made on the basis of scientific cartography. This model will be associated with a geographic information system (GIS "GSR"), containing in various forms of representation both general information about the GSR, and geographical, historical, political, economic, ethno-cultural, confessional, military-historical, environmental (natural and man-made disasters) and other processes and phenomena that describe the world's transport corridors and the main regions of the Silk Road as fully as possible.

The project is based on three layouts, including:

  • the main transport directions of the "Silk Road";
  • the states that created and supported the activities of these transport directions;
  • time periods of the origin and existence of the "Silk Road";
  • the main historical events that determined the development of these transport directions;
  • trajectories of the main transport directions.

“The last few years have been characterized by dramatic changes in the world caused by the years of COVID, the 4D revolution, sanctions and anti-sanctions, special military operation. The world has changed, the global vectors of relations between countries are acquiring new forms and areas. There are completely different players at the global level. All this requires the emergence of new professions, the rejection of old ones, new approaches to training personnel that can not only become competitive in the new labor market, but generally work in completely new conditions and new forms of relationships. Right now, universities are facing unprecedented challenges in the development of new directions in educational activities and the search for teachers who could meet these new requirements.

Chinese language has long been very popular in the world, and Russia is no exception. But the Chinese language is a tool, it is an extremely important addition to the main specialization. China is becoming the number one country in terms of economic development. Cooperation between Russia and China is strengthening and expanding, new joint projects are being developed, and the joint labor market is growing. It is the training of specialists for the new market who speak Chinese and the main profession, whether in the field of economics, finance, IT, engineering, law. This is the main task of all educational institutions,” - said Natalia Pecheritsa.

A feature of our Russian language training programs is a significant element of adaptation classes and activities that contribute to a quick immersion in the Russian socio-cultural environment.

Adaptation along with teaching the Russian language to foreign citizens to life and study in Russia is the main task of the preparatory faculty. To do this, a wide range of educational and extracurricular tools for socio-cultural, legal and professional adaptation is used.

We offer the following options for training foreign citizens in the Russian language:

  • Full-fledged preparatory faculty
    Russian as a foreign language plus profile (optional) - biomedical, engineering, socio-economic, humanitarian
    Purpose: to continue studying in higher education programs.
  • Russian language course with professional adaptation
    Russian as a foreign language plus training in the chosen working profession
    Goal: start a working career in Russia and/or continue college education.

The main distinguishing features of our programs in Russian as a foreign language are:

  • identifying the professional predisposition of students, considering cultural and individual characteristics;
  • social and legal adaptation of foreign citizens, including on issues of continuing education, employment and building a career in Russia;
  • inclusion of foreign students in the educational and cultural space of our country”, -
