RZD International paves a way for knowledge
RZD International not only constructs and modernizes the railway infrastructure of Serbia, but also helps schoolchildren to learn the Russian language. As part of the company’s humanitarian program, the fifth school has been renovated in the regions where construction works are underway.

The Russian company has refurbished the Russian language classroom in the transport school Pinki in Novi Sad, bought new furniture and equipment including a modern interactive whiteboard, as well as new educational and training materials.

On September 17, the school hosted a ceremony dedicated to the completion of the renovation work. Representatives of the Russian Embassy in Serbia, Novi Sad’s city administration, management of the Serbian railways and other honored guests attended the event. The pupils and the school managers thanked RZD International by organizing a small concert, which showed the pupils’ high level of Russian language skills.

The Pinki school trains future transport workers and pays a lot of attention to Russian language learning. The First deputy director of RZD International branch office in the Republic of Serbia Mansurbek Sultanov pointed out that it would be even more comfortable for the schoolchildren to receive the necessary knowledge and to develop their talents in the new classroom. “It’s crucial for us that today we are opening a new classroom in which our future colleagues are being trained”, – added Mr. Sultanov.

The managers of the company offered the Pinki school pupils an opportunity to find out about the technologies used at the largest railway construction site in Serbia, and to organize special educational excursions and lectures. RZD International is now working on the construction of a new railway line at a speed of up to 200 km/h between the cities of Stara Pazova and Novi Sad and building a viaduct in the Danube floodplain and a tunnel in the Chortanovci area.

Additionally, during the ceremony an announcement was made about the launch of the creativity contest for all Serbian schoolchildren “My Big Journey. From Serbia to Russia” within the framework of the annual project “The Train of Wishes”.
