The official, who also heads the Russian Society of Friendship with Cuba on the peninsula, told Prensa Latina that she was referring to the creation of solid ties between the Crimean Engineering and Pedagogical University and one of the Cuban universities.
Kiviko, speaking Wednesday at the first Cuba-Crimea readings, commemorating the 170th anniversary of José Martí´s birth, stressed that Cubans have paid and are paying more and more attention to education. It is no coincidence that in 1961, two years after the triumph of the revolution, the first Cubans went to study at the Soviet Union, she said.
According to the regional vice-president, more than 200 young people from the Caribbean island studied in the city of Szhankoy, on the peninsula, specializing in the agricultural sector as tractor drivers, farmers, horticulturists and drivers.
Kiviko also did not rule out the possibility of opening a joint scientific and educational portal ‘Crimea-Cuba’, a kind of virtual platform where conferences, seminars, lectures could be held to familiarize with the life of the two countries.
She especially pointed out the needs of inculcate patriotism among young people, as knowledge about life and work of outstanding personalities, as José Martí, should continue to be deepened even now, taking into account the challenges facing humanity.
