Kirsan Ilyumzhinov: Preparations for the 75th anniversary of MGIMO are underway

On 6 September, the First Channel made a film dedicated to the anniversary of MGIMO. It was attended by a graduate of the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO), the first president of Kalmykia, the sixth president of FIDE Kirsan Ilyumzhinov.

As we already reported, one of the oldest universities in our country MGIMO turns 75 years old in 2019. The anniversary year is a unique opportunity for promoting and advertising MGIMO, including in the media.


The anniversary campaign is designed to cover new graduates and applicants, provide a long-term, including tangible, “legacy” of the anniversary, and attract additional funds for the development of the university. The 75th anniversary of Alma Mater will give a new impetus to the development of the Association and the entire MGIMO alumni community.

It should be noted that 2019 is the anniversary year for MGIMO. All this year, various events are held dedicated to the anniversary. Thus, on 18 May, the sixth FIDE President Kirsan Ilyumzhinov flew to Tashkent to take part in the fifth MGIMO International Alumni Forum - an informal meeting of public officials, entrepreneurs, heads of multilateral institutions and influential journalists. This forum was also held as part of the celebrations.
