Today we talk about studying in Russia. In Soviet times the system of education was rated among the best in the world. And it was absolutely free. Thousands of young men and women from abroad, especially from other socialist countries, came to study in Soviet Universities. But during Perestroika and the tough economic reforms of the 90s, much of the tradition of excellence was lost. But in recent years much has been regained. The question now is whether Russia is again a destination for quality education. We'll be putting that to the rector of the Peoples' Friendship University of Russia, Vladimir Filippov.
