Dear colleagues,

The government of the Russian Federation has introduced numerous measures to control the spread of coronavirus infection in our country. Russian universities are also concerned about the situation and are actively following all the recommendations provided by the government in order to protect the health and safety of students.

Though there are no cases of coronavirus infection at MSLU, starting March 16, MSLU will provide online courses for all students including foreign exchange students. Access to MSLU Main building will be limited for students but we all remain in touch via e-mail. We have already forwarded this information to all students.

All the important information regarding the current situation is published on our website.  If you or your students have questions we will be glad to help you., +7 (499) 245-22-11.
