Congratulating foreign students on the upcoming start of the academic year, Viktor Anatolyevich paid special attention to the observance of precautionary measures during the spread of coronavirus infection:

– Keep a safe distance from others, wear a mask, ventilate the area well, avoid crowded places, wash your hands and cover your nose and mouth with the fold of your elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. But the most reliable protection against infection is vaccination.

At the end of the solemn part, Viktor Anatolyevich and students of the International Medical Institute planted a blue spruce – a symbol of strength, health and longevity. Fitness training and sports activities – contests organized by the Department of Physical Culture and the Department of Social and Cultural Adaptation of the IMI took place at the outdoor gym.
