New year’s address by the Minister of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation Mikhail Kotyukov

December 27, 2018

Dear friends!

On behalf of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation and on my own behalf, I wish you a happy New Year 2019!

There is a tradition to ring out the old year by remembering its milestones and to ring in the new year with new plans and expectations. We all know, that our future success relies on the results of the work we have done in the past and the efforts we are making now. However, the New Year’s eve is a special time, it is the time when we feel especially empowered, and also optimistic and excited about our future.

The year 2019 will be eventful. Russia is preparing to host Winter Universiade 2019. We also have launched two ambitious national projects, “Science” and “Education”. The coming year will set us new goals and objectives. I believe that together we will achieve great success and impressive results, we will with our own hands fill 2019 with memorable and important events.

I wish you the happiest New Year 2019!


Mikhail Kotyukov,

Minister of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation
