Several MBBS students left stranded in Russia

After 133 students from across India were forced to abandon their MBBS course at Smolensk State Medical University (SSMU) in Russia for being taught in the Russian medium from their second year onwards, the university, as a precautionary measure, has now altered its policy and decided to not admit any Indian students in the Russian medium's MBBS course, but only in the English medium.
The Indian students have now decided to seek relief from the Medical Council of India and have written to them regarding their plight. They have also requested the council to allow them to continue their second year in another Russsian university.
MY Dyakov, Dean, faculty for foreign students at SSMU told DNA, "We plan to not admit Indian students in the Russian medium. The education consultancy has cheated Indian students and this incident has given a bad name to the university. We have to take a firm stand on the issue so that no other Indian student is cheated again."
DNA had reported how 133 Indian students who had gained admission at SSMU for an MBBS course were left in the lurch after they were told that they were enrolled for the course in the Russian medium, not English, by a Delhi-based agency, Rus Education.
While lessons were imparted in English for the initial year, the problems for the students began when the university started instructing them in the Russian medium from the second year onwards.
