Working meeting with Culture Minister Alexander Avdeyev

February 3, 2011, The Kremlin, Moscow

Dmitry Medvedev informed the minister about the establishment of Presidential awards for young cultural professionals and the presentation of 2011–2013 grants to six leading professional folk music and dance ensembles.

Earlier today Dmitry Medvedev signed the relevant Executive Order and instructions.

In total, over 300 million rubles [about $10 million] will be allocated for the grants. President Medvedev expressed his hope that this will help outstanding Russian music and dance ensembles to expand their performance tours around Russia.
