‘’M. V. Lomonosov Moscow State University’’ is the biggest in Russia.
The University had been named in honor of Russian scientist M.V.Lomonosov.
Mikhail Vasilyevich Lomonosov was a Russian scientist and a writer. He had excelled in such branches of the science as: natural science, chemistry, physics, mineralogy, history, art, philology, math,optical devices and others.
Lomonosov was born in the village in the north of Russia. His father was a fisherman. He worked with his father. The boy was very clever and intellectual.
He wanted to be a scientist. That’s why he went to Saint- Petersburg in a secret from his father to study at the University. And he became a famous scientist.
He lived many years ago. And now, we have many changes in our country.
But and now a lot of talented young people want to study.
They have a lot of new ideas.
But the oldest generation has to help the talented youth to put into practice their ideas, projects.
That's why every year in Russia are held the Forums for helping the youth in the realisation of their ideas. The Forums took place in many regions of our country.
When I go for a walk I see many young people. Some of them are merry, the others are sad. They are different. They will have a brilliant future with interesting events and discoveries.
Now, they can achieve the realization of their dreams. Forums help them in it. These forums take place in open air, because the young people want to communicate in the informal conditions.
We have a proverb- I go to watch the people and to show himself.
So they come to the forums to show their ideas and learn from others participants, but not only for business cooperation, but also to make new friends, go in for sport, sit around the campfire with a guitar.
