Chinese students congratulated RANEPA NWIM on the Victory Day
In honor of the 77th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War, the North-West Institute of Management, branch of RANEPA, received congratulatory videos from several Chinese universities.
Students from Harbin University of Commerce and Guangdong University of Foreign Languages and International Trade of the People’s Republic of China sent their sincere best wishes.
The foreign partners sang one of the greatest wartime songs, “Katyusha”, in Russian. This choice of musical composition was not accidental: the song is highly popular in China, and its tunes are loved and easily recognized by the Chinese public.
For our Chinese friends, this has become a tradition. Colleagues from China have been congratulating RANEPA NWIM with colorful video postcards since 2020. Interaction with the Russian university is conducted within the framework of the “Katyusha” cultural and patriotic project organized by the Center for Cooperation with the PRC of the Department of International Cooperation at NWIM.
The number of international students wishing to congratulate our university has been growing year after year. This year, six students from Harbin University of Commerce and 37 students from Guangdong University of Foreign Languages and International Trade participated in the video.
Notably, in their video message, the Bachelors and Masters degree students of the Russian language faculty of Guangdong University of Foreign Languages and International Trade also performed a heart-touching poem “Wait for me, and I will come back” by Konstantin Simonov. The video is available here.
RANEPA NWIM is currently implementing a number of cultural projects with Guangdong University of Foreign Languages and International Trade. In particular, Guangdong University of Foreign Languages and International Trade students participate in the “I Love You, Peter’s Creation” project, which involves reading of poetry and prose dedicated to St. Petersburg and Russia. The event coincides with the 350th anniversary of the birth of the first Russian emperor, Peter the Great.
