The message reads, in part:
“Many talented and enterprising young people have gathered here today on hospitable soil of the Kaliningrad Region – Russian citizens and our compatriots from different countries that are striving to make a contribution to promoting the ideas of the Russian world and expansion of the Russian-language information space. Importantly, you are here because you care about the future of Russia and have a sincere desire to promote the popularity of the Russian language and the wealth of our historical and cultural heritage. This serious and diverse work is of great importance for developing international humanitarian and personal contacts and for enhancing Russia’s prestige in the world.
I am confident that the forum’s busy schedule will allow you to spend these days on the Baltic coast usefully and to map out prospects for personal and professional growth, and to exchange your experience and practices with other participants. Naturally, you will certainly make new acquaintances and friends.”|
The forum is being held on the Baltic Sea Coast in Svetlogorsk, Kaliningrad Region, on August 9–16.
