On Russian Youth Day, June 27, at 4:00 pm, the Valdai Discussion Club hosted a discussion within the framework of the Dialogue on an Equal featuring Russian Sports Minister Pavel Kolobkov, who will speak with Russian university students.
For young Russians, competitive sports are especially appealing, because they offer them the ability to reach their full potential. It is important for Russia to have qualified representatives in international sports organisations and federations.
What is happening in the field of sports now? Does hosting large sporting events deliver the desired effect? What international sporting events does Russia plan to host in the near future? Are sport managers in demand in our country? Where and how can one learn to be a sports manager, a sports lawyer, etc.? These and many other questions will be addressed by the participants of the discussion.
Pavel Kolobkov, Minister of Sports of the Russian Federation
