On June 14 RSUH signed a cooperation agreement with MGLU. The agreement provides for joint Latin American research and for the opening of a RSUH branch in Guatemala.
MGLU Rector Kraeva and Rector Bezborodov both noted the importance of creating educational consortia to promote fundamental and applied research.
The Guatemala branch, set to promote Russian studies in Latin America in Spanish, will open in September 2019. The pilot project, initiated by the Knorozov Center of RSUH, will consist of teaching Latin American students online.
