“Cooperation between the Russian Federation and the People's Republic of China in the Humanities has acquired a systemic character and has begun to play no less a role than political or economic. Cooperation between educational institutions of the two countries has increased dramatically and reached a level unprecedented in the history of bilateral relations. This, among other things, was facilitated by the implementation of projects within the framework of the One Belt One Road concept, as well as the introduction of specific initiatives, such as government scholarships for education and training at the interstate level,” said G.V. Sintsov.
