In addition, Tatiana Moskalkova spoke about the main directions of the Commissioner’s activities, paying special attention to dealing with citizens' complaints, human rights education and legislation improvement.

Speaking about interaction with the Council of Europe, Tatiana Moskalkova informed that more than 25 events were conducted in 2018–2021 to discuss both systemic problems and specific human rights cases.

In conclusion, the High Commissioner wished success to the course participants and expressed gratitude to the MGIMO management for organizing such a platform with the involvement of a wide range of Russian and international experts.
