The second session of the video interview cycle "Promoting International Development: Russia’s Contribution" was successfully held on 17 March 2021. The event was organised by the Financial University together with the Representative Office of Rossotrudnichestvo and the Youth Club of Russian Compatriots in the Republic of Cyprus.
The concept of "international development" is often used by politicians, journalists, diplomats and financiers, sometimes in a very loose interpretation. At the same time, it is a well-defined legal and scientific term, underpinned by real forms and instruments of international interaction among different countries. Thus, the Russian Federation and Cyprus promote international development on the basis of international law and their own national legislation.
During the discussion, Deputy Head of the International Cooperation Office Alexey Sereda addressed a number of aspects of Russia’s direct participation in developing international assistance programs, and also reviewed the programs prioritised by Russia.
