Colonel-General Zarudnitsky, Head of Military Academy of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation:


Colonel-General Zarudnitsky, Head of Military Academy of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation:

Historical issues are very important for us, because in the course of our work we rely on historical conclusions, patterns and development. We see prospects in our relations with Russian State University for the Humanities. Humanitarian knowledge is, first of all, intelligence, understanding of historical issues, trends, culture. Without this, the development of military sciences would be impossible.


The event was attended by: Lieutenant General Savchenko, Deputy Head of the Academy, Major General Serzhantov, Deputy Head of the Academy, Major General Korzhevsky, Head of Military Institute (Department of National Defense) and Deputy Head of Military Academy of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, Major General Botev, Head of the Department of the History of Wars and Military Art of the Military Academy, Dr. Krasheninnikov, Director General of the autonomous non-profit organization Institute for Foreign Policy Research and Initiatives, employees of the Military Academy, as well as members of the administration of RSUH.

Rector Bezborodov noted the importance of cooperation between RSUH and Military Academy: “The Russian army today is directly connected with many humanitarian projects that are important for the country and the world. At RSUH, research activities have never bypassed or evaded issues related to the military history of Russia. The University is actively working on the patriotic education of students. We have big plans with the Academy and there are common topics for interaction.”

Colonel-General Zarudnitsky, Head of the Military Academy, expressed gratitude to RSUH, drawing attention to the role of history for the Russian army: “It is important for us to sign a cooperation agreement with RSUH, since the main directions of the University's activities coincide with the interests of our Academy. We attach particular importance to history, because, in our opinion, it is important to always study and research it, especially now, when the West is making attempts to falsify it. I am sure that when we start working together, we will find those points of contact that will expand our opportunities for further fruitful cooperation.”

All students, without exception, will be involved in the joint work with Military Academy of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.

“The academic and educational model of RSUH is unique. Not only are we a traditional humanitarian university, but also a university that includes IT technologies in humanitarian developments, and is engaged in interdisciplinary research, state assignments, as well as the implementation of large academic projects. We hope that knowledge and experience of RSUH will be useful in cooperation with the Military Academy,” said Olga Vyacheslavovna.

Particular attention was paid to the research activities of students.

The presence of such a subdivision in a humanitarian university is a response to the modern challenges of the digital age, where we cannot exist without the protection against threats to information,” stressed Andrey Aryevich.
