Dr. Alexandr Khoroshev, Associate Professor at the Lomonosov Moscow State University, was appointed Chairman of the IALE-RU, and UTMN Associate Professor Dmitry Maryinskikh was named its secretary.

“The establishment of this chapter gives us access to all of the International Association’s academic events which, in turn, encourages international cooperation”, said Alexandr Khoroshev. “Under the banner of the chapter, we want to create a platform for information and discussion, something like an electronic bulletin, to exchange the latest news in landscape science and discuss its current issues”. 

UTMN, represented by the director of the Institute of Earth Sciences, Vitaly Khoroshavin, was chosen to be the coordinating organization for the Russian Chapter.
