'Following the University traditions, we award the title of Honorary Doctor of Voronezh State University to the most outstanding scientists connected with VSU. Today I have the honour of greeting famous Russian mathematician Viktor Buchstaber. His lectures at the Voronezh School of Mathematics and joint work with mathematicians of VSU played a great role in studying new fields of topology and differential equations and creating new courses in topology and geometry for the students of the faculty of Mathematics. You are the second mathematician awarded with the title of Honorary Doctor of Voronezh State University, and this is a great honour for us. I am glad to see a lot of young people here, who look at you as an example of devotion to science and research', – said Dmintry Endovitsky.
