SUM Rector Ivan Lobanov expressed his gratitude for the support and proposed broadening the scope of publications, beyond scientific papers and educational materials, to include those aimed at educating the younger generation and developing patriotic qualities, such as essays and memories related to the university, its history and teachers.
I would like to thank you for the support from experienced, professional and strong people. These are the qualities underpinning both science and management,

I have no particular concerns right now; I have a positive feeling of moving even faster forward. It all depends on us,
