The scope of the centre is to promote professional communication and economic ties.

“Today’s launch signifies the culmination of the mutual cooperation between Zimbabwe and Russia as you are aware that our countries have already existing strong bilateral relations. The cooperation we have can only be strengthened when we understand the language and culture of one another.

“We are very grateful for the support we are getting from Zimbabwe. As part of our foreign policy we put it as a priority to introduce our language in friendly countries so that we can communicate efficiently and professionally. We are expecting to replicate the same in Russia,” he said.
