Academic relations between these two universities are supposed to be implemented within the framework of exchange programs for the teaching staff and students.

At present the ideas of this teacher and mentor live in the work of Anna Nilova, Anna Skoropadskaya, Elena Kaurova and Evgeniya Litinskaya, lecturers from the Department of Classic Philology, Russian Literature and Journalism, Institute of Philology.
