Greetings to 25th Russian Student Spring National Festival

May 15, 2017

Vladimir Putin sent greetings to members, organisers and guests of the 25th Russian Student Spring National Festival, held in Tula and Moscow this year.

The message reads, in part:

“Having come a long way from an amateur competition between universities to a national festival of creative young people, your event has made a name for itself as a unique opportunity for students from all over the country to get to know each other and make the most of their talents and skills.

The festival’s packed programme helps gifted young men and women choose a career and gain useful experience in various fields, including volunteering, education, and philanthropy. What is most important, challenging and informative contests such as this help familiarise young people with the rich cultural and spiritual heritage of the peoples of Russia, and with the historical and patriotic traditions of our nation.”
