Vladimir Kalinkin:

“This summit has been the first major international event for me to participate in. Unfortunately, the time passed very quickly. We didn’t have any free time and managed to learn a lot of new information due to this. However, we had some time to have rest as well. We visited a cable way in Manzherok, a hydro-electric power station in Chemal, got acquainted with culture and history of Altai at the State Museum of Altai Republic. I hope that I will be able to go to the next summit. Great thanks to the organizers!”

Victoria Nechayeva:

“The II Summit for Student Leaders from the SCO Countries has been an event, where I managed to have a rest, find inspiration, establish new contacts, acquire new skills, and give thought to some philosophical and patriotic questions such as “Am I ready to sacrifice myself for my motherland?” The event was also practice-oriented. Due to it I have become a person responsible for organization of Russian Student Week at ASU. Let’s get down to business! I invite everybody to participate in this event. Stay tuned.”
