MOSCOW, June 13 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed resignation of Vasily Yakimenko, who heads the federal agency for youth affairs.
The decree was signed on June 9 and was placed on the government’s website on Wednesday.
In May 2000 Yakimenko, 41, established the youth movement Walking Together and since April 2005 he has served as the federal commissioner of the Nashi (Ours) youth movement.
On October 8, 2007, he was appointed as head of the State Duma’s youth affairs committee.
Since July 6, 2008, he has headed the federal agency for youth affairs.
In May Yakimenko announced his intention to create a new party entitled “The Party of the Future”.
He said his party should focus on “people of the future” aged between 25-35 years, as “in many respects the country’s future depends on them.”
“The party’s task is to rearrange the living environment and daily living activities of people of the future, the party’s principle is mass network co-partnership and the party’s achievement – new people in power, new talents, new ideas and the result – the country’s success through success of people,” Yakimenko said.
According to his forecasts, initially the party will consist of 500-600 people and in the future it may grow up to 10,000.
Yakimenko said he planned to file documents for the party’s registration already in autumn.
