Jean-Maurice Ripert, ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary of France, visited students at MGIMO University in Russia on March 20.

The meeting focused on several issues relevant to Russian students, such as the freedom of expression, opinion and the press.

Artem Malgin, vice rector of MGIMO, presented Ripert to answer questions from students. Malgin also mediated the discussion between students and Ripert. The discussions included freedoms, social rights, religion and the need for self-restraint to protect and preserve social stability.

When the lecture finished, Ripert continued the lengthy discussion by interacting with Anatoly Torkunovym, rector of MGIMO. They discussed different designated plans that will require the cooperation of Russia and the French Embassy, as well as Moscow State Institute.
