Our country showed the consolidation of all the affiliates of WFDY, the largest student unions and youth associations, submitted a guarantee from the state, successfully presented the proposed location of the festival - the city of Sochi, with its high level of infrastructure.

Head of the Federal Agency for Youth Affairs Sergey Pospelov noted considerable interest in Russia and our youth organizations. "The delegates of the member countries of the General Assembly are ready not only to talk, but to act. To act towards our activities and joint projects with Russian youth organizations. Russia's proposal to hold the festival received an extremely positive response from future participants. Many of them expressed their words of support, on the sidelines of the event, and noted that Russia today is an example of the activity in the foreign policy that makes the festival in our country on the front burner."
