(Eagle News) — In this video taken by Eagle News Service correspondent in Russia, Emy Coloma, more Russian students express their love for the Filipino language.
These three students interviewed by Eagle News Service in Moscow are taking up studies on the Tagalog language at the Moscow State University.
They said they love the Filipino language and also expressed their admiration for Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte.
They, however, missed the chance to take a picture with Duterte when he attended the Philippine Gala performance of the Madrigal Singers and the Bayanihan Dance group at the Four Seasons Hotel in Moscow.
The students said they hope that the Philippines and Russia continue to strengthen bilateral relations.
The three were among the Russian students, including those studying Tagalog at the Moscow State University, who were invited to the event on Friday, Oct. 4, 2019 which was held during Duterte’s visit.
The 74-year old Philippine leader is also set to receive an honorary doctorate degree at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO).
