Greetings to participants of the 9th Russian Winter Rural Sports Games

March 19, 2019

Vladimir Putin sent his greetings to participants of the 9th Russian Winter Rural Sports Games, the final stage of which is underway in Tyumen.

The message reads, in part:

“These large-scale competitions have become very popular as a major sporting event.

The rich agenda and an open and friendly atmosphere at the Rural Games attracts ever more participants from across the country every year, introduces young people to the values of active and healthy lifestyle, physical culture and sports, as well as leave bright and positive emotions among both participants and numerous fans of this wonderful sports festival.

I am confident that the 9th Russian Winter Rural Sports Games will live up to our expectations, that they will be remembered for the outstanding victories and achievements and will also promote cooperation in resolving current social problems in rural areas.”
