At the award ceremony it was said that Turkmen students organize business and scientific events, take an active civic position and pay special attention to gaining knowledge as part of their academic activities. Young people from Turkmenistan living in St. Petersburg do not forget their national traditions and regularly participate in cultural events.

More than 500 students from Turkmenistan study at Polytechnic University. Thanks to the work of the Turkmen community together with the administration of St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, we have a clear system of interaction with Turkmen students. They receive all the important information, give us feedback and have the opportunity to inform us about the difficulties that arise. Significant support is also provided by SPbPU student organizations aimed at interacting with foreign students: Tutor Forces and PolyUnion international student club, said Pavel Nedelko, SPbPU assistant vice-rector for international affairs.
