100th Anniversary of Students Trade Unions marked in Moscow

On November 19, the celebration of the centenary of the student union movement took place at the Moscow State University. In April 1919, the student trade union organization Medsantrud was established at the Faculty of Medicine of the Moscow State University, which date is considered the date of the emergence of student unions in Russia. The long history of the formation and development of the student union movement has proved the importance of student union organizations, and today the union activists are successful leaders and true professionals in various fields.

A congratulatory speech was made by the chairman of the All-Russian Trade Union of Education Galina Merkulova, the Rector of Moscow State University Victor Sadovnichy and other guests of honor. The celebration brought together veterans of the Education Union, the founders and current members of the Student Coordination Council of the Union.

MADI was represented by the largest student delegation among all universities in Russia. Our students rendered assistance and support in organizing the celebrations.
