"Eurasian integration" is the creation of a model (development of conditions) for the conflict-free and sustainable development of all peoples and states living on the largest continent. Having gone through hundreds of wars and conflicts, through centuries of unlimited exploitation of natural resources, our mainland needs to build a new system of relations between man and nature, relations between peoples and states, and relations between people on the basis of the great cultural heritage of the peoples of the continent, their age-old moral and religious values. Eurasian integration is not the "abolition" of nations and nation-states, but a way to solve common problems facing people living on the continent.

I would also note that the number of universities of the CIS countries exceeded the number of Russian ones among the participants, which indicates a growing international interest in our event,” said Roman Krasnov.
