“The ministries and departments which are engaged in the educational process, are set out to meet the demands and requirements of the people”, – Putin said. He stressed that Russia’s young people “is the inner margin to education and access to new intellectual position.” “This trend, and this drive to our youth, we should use” – Putin added.

I am often at work, I can see, these complex machines, such sophisticated equipment is used today, and there really in demand are people with higher education, and work people with higher education, and they are happy with their situation, “- said the head of government, noting that they have decent wages and demand for knowledge.
