Mr. Mohammed Elbadri was given an excursion in the Museum of History of Kazan University. Then he shared his impressions of the University: “I came here with the understanding of richness of your history,” he said. “I have many missions; particularly, my interest is to help universities of Egypt and Russia to establish contacts and develop cooperation.
