And that’s why advanced Russian could be an absolute advantage, because “international relations require excellent knowledge of the language”.

What is the daughter of an Ecuadorian police officer studying in Moscow?

The second year of the master’s degree at RUDN Law Institute — Angelica Sandoval’s choice of major was certainly influenced by her father. He is a police officer, and as a child the girl listened to stories about the search for criminals, ambushes, chases and shootings. The key word is “the girl”, so despite father’s influence, the decision to study criminology looks a little bit extravagant. Especially when the training takes place literally on the other side of the world, in Russia. Although, if you look at it, everything turns out logical: childhood dreams, life goals — in RUDN Angelica managed to find everything she wanted.
