Confucius Institute Case

The Prosecutor’s Office of Blagoveshchensk appealed to the City Court with a demand to suspend the activities of the Confucius Institute working on the basis of the Blagoveshchensk State Pedagogical University (BSPU), according to TASS. The trial is scheduled for August 4.

      The applicant considers that the institution violates the legislation on foreign cultural centres on the territory of Russia. In particular, the Prosecutor’s Office thinks that the establishment of the institute was not agreed with the Russian government, it is not registered as a non-profit organization and is not registered with tax authorities.

      Besides, according to the applicant’s opinion, the institution has no grounds to involve foreign teachers in the educational activities. In response to the claims the BSPU representatives stated that the Confucius Institute is a division of the university and does not have a status of an independent legal entity.

      Confucius Institutes present an international network of cultural and educational centres for the study of Chinese language and culture. A total of 443 Confucius Institutes are operating in the world, 18 of them are working in Russia. Large institutions operate in Moscow on the basis of the Moscow State University and Russian State Humanitarian University, as well as in St. Petersburg. The institute in Blagoveshchensk was opened in 2007.
