Dmitry Medvedev: “RCSC in Beijing is a center of attraction for our compatriots and Chinese friends”

Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev congratulated the Russian Center for Science and Culture (RCSC) in Beijing on its 10th anniversary.

“It is not by chance that the Center was opened in the capital of China, having close friendly and partnership relations with Russia”, the greeting telegram says.

Dmitry Medvedev emphasized that this Rossotrudnichestvo representative office is entrusted with an important mission to promote Russian culture in China, introducing the PRC citizens to the Russian rich artistic, musical and spiritual heritage, as well as its traditions and new achievements in various spheres. In September 2010, Dmitry Medvedev attended the RCSC’s opening ceremony and he still fondly remembers this event.

For 10 years, the RCSC in Beijing has been involved in the promotion of Russian language and literature in China and implementation of major educational projects. It has also been advocating the idea of twin-city ties establishment between Russian and Chinese cities.

“Thanks to all these activities, Rossotrudnichestvo representative office has been serving as an important center of attraction both for our Chinese friends and for our compatriots living in China”, the greeting telegram says.
