RUDN forges diplomatic personnel. Many university graduates who start diplomatic service, do not lose contact with the university and promote the values and traditions of Alma Mater. At the initiative of such graduates, the International Club of Diplomatic Alumni and Friends of RUDN was established, the first meeting taking place on December 13. The meeting participants discussed the Regulations on the Club and outlined a work plan and interaction formats, as well as elected the management.
