Autumn Calls For New Heights
RZD International congratulated the students of the "23 October" school in Sremski Karlovci on the holiday of the 23-rd of October, in honor of which the school is called.

First deputy director of RZD International branch office in Serbia Mansurbek Sultanov attended the ceremony and presented children with school supplies and sports equipment.

In summer 2018, the Company rehabilitated the Russian language classroom and fitted it with modern furniture, an Interactive Whiteboard and training materials. Moreover, in September RZD International declared the start of the creativity writing contest for the pupils – "Old stories and tales with a modern twist", the results of which will be announced in the end of this year. Useful prizes, already prepared for the winners, will help them in their studies and extracurricular activities.

"This date – October 23 – reminds us once again about the deep cultural and historical ties between Russian and Serbian people that are especially strong in Sremski Karlovci. We are glad to see the children being so interested in learning the Russian language and showing significant results in this subject.

And our help goes much further – the modern high-speed railway, which our company is constructing now, is coming up soon in Sremski Karlovci. It is the way to the new discoveries, achievements and journeys, that will open the whole world for children and adults", — commented Mansurbek Sultanov.

The “23 October” school was chosen to be included in the company's humanitarian program as it is situated in the area of the Stara Pazova – Novi Sad section of the Belgrade – Budapest railway line, where RZD International is performing construction works on the Chortanovci tunnel and the viaduct in the floodplain of the Danube river, as well as the new railway tracks for the speed of 200 km/h.

Since 2014, RZD International has been carrying out extensive humanitarian program in Serbia. In particular, it supports the educational establishments of the country. The Company has already renovated schools in Pancevo, Golubinci, Vranje and Sremski Karlovci. Moreover, RZD International annually organizes children and youth creativity contests in Serbia under the project "The Train of Wishes". This year the contest is called "By the Road of Dreams". The announcement of the winners and the awards ceremony will traditionally take place in Belgrade in December 2018.
