Cosmonaut training Center and Peoples’ Friendship University actively cooperates for many years. Almost all foreign cosmonauts learnt the Russian language at faculty of PFUR. Teachers of the Department of Russian language were prepared astronauts from France, Germany, Japan, Syria, United Kingdom, Czechoslovakia, Poland, India, Austria, USA, Canada and many other countries.
It is difficult to overestimate the contribution of PFUR to the development of partnership and friendly relations between the peoples in the case of a joint space exploration leading countries.
Study programs, developed in the University allow preparing their alternates, and the main members of the space crew for a short time and study space technical disciplines in the Russian language.
