Lavrov also worked with his university’s student construction brigades in Khakassia, Tuva, and the Russian Far East during his summer holidays.
Each semester, Lavrov and his classmates put on theatre plays that were ultimately shown on the university’s main stage. Lavrov married during his third year of studies.
