There are many large geographical regions speaking the same language for different historical and political reasons. In European Union it is English with the main educational programs using this language. The same situation is observed in transplantation, where the modern destinations in transplantation law, donation aspects, donor family approach, etc. being presented in English.
In the former USSR territory Russian was used as international language and this situation remains in many countries where Russian is more popular than English. At the same time they have big interest in the development of local transplantation programs that needs participation in education programs in transplantation.
