Abstract
First students from Somali Republic arrived to the Soviet Union in 1961 as a result of launching the programme of Soviet scholarships for students from Asian and African developing countries. Thus the Soviets promoted communist ideas across the world through the minds of Asian and African students. In the beginning of 1960s the Soviet Union took an advantage of acquiring its strategic and ideological position in the Horn of Africa using European and American rivalry in the region. At the time the Soviet knowledge of Somali realities was quite limited and mostly theoretical. Political environment in the USSR in the beginning of 1960s had a great impact on the relations between Soviet citizens and Somalis students as well as it opened advantages and disadvantages of the Soviet education and Soviet ideology at the time.
