TV BRICS CEO Janna Tolstikova and Acting Rector of GAUGN Ilya Sokolshchik acted as signatories
TV BRICS and the State Academic University for the Humanities (SAUH/GAUGN) have signed a cooperation agreement at the conclusion of a joint session entitled "Topical trends in the development of the media sphere in the context of today's global challenges".
The signatories were Janna Tolstikova, CEO of TV BRICS, and Ilya Sokolshchik, Acting Rector of GAUGN (SAUH). He spoke about the goals of the university and the expected results of the agreement: "There are different objectives: for example, in the field of information development in the BRICS space - we are ready as an expert platform to help in this by providing experts on certain issues <...>, there are educational objectives - internships for our students in the media holding company, trips. Perhaps it is to participate in the formation of "soft power", important in today's world. We are raising future experts who, in one space or another, including BRICS, should promote Russia's interests."
Ilya Sokolschik added that the acronym BRICS has entered the mainstream and is familiar to almost every university student.
"There is an understanding among our population, among our students, that these are the countries that are inevitably partners of Russia in the current geopolitical situation. In many ways they are similar in mentality in some respects, peoples, economies. <...> I think this is one very understandable entity for students," said the Acting Rector of GAUGN (SAUH).
Natalia Emelianova, Vice-Rector for Strategic Communications at GAUGN, (SAUH) described what news is important for her personally on TV BRICS: "What is significant for me is the news related to maintaining the security architecture, in the megaregional aspect, what is happening along the RIC (Russia, India, China) and how it affects the hypothetical constructs of ITR (Indo-Pacific region), what is and can happen in the interaction with BRICS, SCO, EAEU countries."
TV BRICS has a long history of cooperation with leading BRICS universities. TV BRICS, for example, held a public lecture on the five countries' cooperation in the humanitarian sphere, particularly in the field of film and television, for students at the Federal University of Latin American Integration in the state of Parana.
The 21st Russia-India Summit "Russia-India: Partnership for Peace, Progress and Prosperity" was followed by an open lecture for Indian students at Stella Maris College in Chennai, India.
In addition, an international videoconference took place, linking the two cities of São Paulo and Omsk by teleconference. Dialogue topic: "The Three Cities in the Creative Destiny of F.M. Dostoevsky". The Modern Russian outreach project of MKR-Media Holding held an interactive meeting with students and teachers of the University of São Paulo.
