Further, Chairman of the Student Council of RUDN University Kirill Bogatyrev read the text of the Declaration:

Support the RUDN University Mission and promote tolerance.
To support and, through all activities, facilitate interaction of representatives of the student team in order to develop common solutions to all issues arising in the student community.
We confirm that neglect of the principles of friendship, tolerance and mutual assistance is incompatible with the rank of RUDN University student. If only the prerequisites for intolerant behavior arise, student organizations and their leaders are not entitled to provide any support to violators of this Declaration.
To promote the status and responsibility of student organizations through the process of making and implementing critical decisions.
To promote the student life of the University through strengthening cooperation with student organizations of educational institutions of Russia, Europe, and the world.”
