On March 22, a meeting was held in the format of an open dialogue between foreign students and employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for the Republic of Mordovia. Guests from different countries received clarifications on the rules of stay in Russia, and were also able to ask their questions.
Vice-Rector for International Affairs Denis Filetkin addressed the audience with a request to hear the important information that the employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs will bring to their attention. He also urged students not to postpone issues related to extending their visas and processing other documents necessary for their successful study at the university until the last moment.
In addition, international students were told about new and old types of telephone and cyber fraud: calls even from known phone numbers can be fraudulent, bank employees do not call via Whats App or Viber messengers, dubious emails can be infected with malicious viruses, and working as a courier with the transportation of unknown goods put the worker under suspicion and can lead to the dock.
The event was organized and hosted by the Coordinating Center for Counteracting the Ideology of Terrorism and Extremism of MRSU.
