TOMSK, August 6 (Itar-Tass) —— Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said his son, Ilya, had received enough points to enroll in any of the three major higher educational institutions in Russia: Moscow Institute of International Relations, Moscow State University and St. Petersburg State University.
Medvedev confirmed this at a meeting with reporters during a railway trip from Omsk to Tomsk on Monday, August 6. They asked him whether Ilya had consulted him when choosing his future profession.
“Ilya consulted me of course when choosing the institute three years ago when he opted for law,” the prime minister said.
He said Ilya had taken entrance examinations at three institutes and fared well in each of them. “He chose Moscow Institute of International Relations and international law,” Medvedev said.
“Ilya is almost of age. He will turn 18 next year. He will decide himself how often to attend classes or communicate with anyone,” he added.
