Today VSU is the biggest university accommodating foreign students in Chernozemye region. The Head of the International Collaboration Оleg Belenov rationalizes what makes Voronezh State University attractive for foreigners.
Early this year the Solzhenitsyn House of Russia Abroad received the key to a new building, where the Museum of Russian Immigration is to open soon. Now is the hardest part of work, placing the exhibits so that they would “talk” to the visitors. Igor Domnin, the deputy director for the Solzhenitsyn House of Russia Abroad and Andrey Vovk, the director for the Russian branch of Ralph Appelbaum Associates are discussing the ways to do it.
