The Democritus University of Thrace is a good friend of Mariupol State University and supports the academic community of MSU in implementing joint projects. Ukrainian and Greek lecturers considered ways to expand the existing cooperation between universities.
We considered the development of joint educational programs for students of the Chair of Greek philology and Translation of double diplomas in the future. We also paid attention to the discussion of the publication of a joint project of the Chairs of our universities for Ukrainian-speaking students of Greek schools. This is especially true in the context of forced resettlement of people due to military operations in Ukraine,
