The Faculty of International Relations and Foreign Area Studies presented a number of projects. Dr. Olga Pavlenko, Head of the Department of Foreign Area Studies and Foreign Policy, presented the international project “The Role of Neutral States (Austria, Sweden, Finland and Switzerland) in the Implementation of the USSR Foreign Policy Strategy. 1969-1975 ". The implementation of the project became possible due to the fact that recently the Russian State Archive of Contemporary History and the Archive of Foreign Policy of the Russian Federation declassified a large number of documents: materials from the Politburo, the Central Committee of the CPSU and the Russian Foreign Ministry. These documents allow us to study how the process of informing the Soviet leadership about foreign policy events was carried out.
The third day of the Readings ended with a seminar "The Institute for Higher Research in Humanities at a writing table", which was held in the format of a videoconference. The organizer was the Meletinsky Institute of Higher Humanitarian Research.
