They successfully defended their theses and some of them are Doctors of Sciences now. The BSU chancellor Muchamet Harrasov was also the student of Moscow State University; he even attended my lecturers on functional analysis."
Victor Sadovnichy reminded that the history of the higher education in Russia starts with the foundation of Moscow State University, which was followed by universities in other major Russian cities, including Ufa. The MSU chancellor called the centenary of the higher education in Bashkortostan an important historic event.
