The guests of honour of the event became the Senior Political Adviser to the Ugandan President H.E. Mr. Yoweri Museveni H.E. Mr. Chris Rwakasisi and Lieutenant General of the UPDF Mr. Ivan Koreta. The meeting was also attended by the core group of the association of the alumni "Soyuzonline", led by its chairman Mr.Yona Mondo.

In his welcoming remarks, H.E. Ambassador Alexander Polyakov emphasized the need to intensify the Russian-Ugandan cooperation in practical areas, especially in the economic and humanitarian sphere, resting on the tradition of mutual understanding and respect between our countries. In this regard, he noted that Ugandan students who studied at Russian and Soviet universities (around four thousand) could and should play a major role in "bridging" the two friendly countries and peoples.
