RCSC holds annual press meet

The Russian Center for Science and Culture (RCSC) in Dhaka held an annual press meeting on November 26 regarding main activities during the ongoing year, according to a press release. 

The Director of RCSC, Maxim Dobrokhotov spoke about plans and answered questions of journalists from different mass media. He emphasized the traditionally strong relationship between Bangladesh and Russia and expressed the hope that they would only strengthen in the future. 

Maxim reminded that this year Russia celebrated the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War. On this occasion, RCSC in Dhaka has organized many important and informative online events, such the 'Immortal Regiment', ‘Documentary and Feature Films Show’ and ‘Online Meetings’ marking this historical date as well as the victory in World War II.  

Another significant jubilee to honour was the 90th anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore visit to Russia which became a sort of harbinger of future friendly relations between Russia and Bangladesh. 

The Director noted that the RCSC focuses on educational activities, including the selection of candidates for Russian government scholarship programs, adding that in the 2020-2021 academic year the Russian authorities have allocated a total of 65 scholarships for bachelor's, masters' and PhD. He also pointed out that every year over 200 Bangladeshi citizens choose Russia as a place for higher education. 

“There is a growing interest in Russian language education in Bangladesh as a result of which more than 100 students have taken part in the Russian language courses offered by RCSC this year,” said the Director.

The Heads of the Cultural Programs and Education Sections, respectively Proshanta Kumar Barman and Sayed Bazlul Hassan Rajib, gave wide commentaries and replied to several questions.

RCSC Director stressed out the important contribution of local media in daily life and thanked for highlighting activities of RCSC in the press and expressed hope that this trend would continue in future. He said that online journalism is now very popular in Bangladesh and plays a vital role in disseminating information.

Over thirty journalists from different media including news channels (RTV, Jamuna TV, Channel 24), as well as print and online portals (Daily Ittefaq, The Independent, Daily New Age, Daily Observer, Bangladesh Post, Daily Sangbad, Daily Janakantho, Daily Jugantor, Daily Amader Somoy, Bangla News 24.com, the Bangladesh beyond.com, Voicebd24.com, Simi Tech), attended the meeting, the press release added.
