In February of 2017, free Russian language courses were held jointly with Government of Belgrade for students of Belgrade University. 50 winners received scholarships based on results of the selection procedure.

 

Representatives of the City Hall wished the winners success in learning Russian and developing communications between the youth of the two countries. They mentioned importance of public initiatives and their support by the government.
