On the occasion of the anniversary, the Executive Director of the Russkiy Mir Foundation, Vladimir Kochin, sent a congratulatory message to the Director of the Y.Y. Zmai Gymnasium Radivoj Stojkovic. “Thanks to the creative approach in the work of the head of the Russian Center, Mr. Nenad Spasic, the teachers and the management of the gymnasium became one of the best,” the letter says.

The Russian center holds competitions in the Russian language, book presentations and creative contests, organizes Russian cinema shows, the Russian language lovers' meetings, exhibitions devoted to Russia, lectures and training seminars for teachers. Holidays and memorable dates are celebrated at the center, and experts in the Russian language from Russia are invited there.

“The events and meetings with interesting people allow us to bring our nations together, and gymnasium students can expand their scientific horizons and learn more about Russia, its culture and traditions,” said V. Kochin in his message.
