MOSCOW, January 16 /ITAR-TASS/. President Vladimir Putin will meet on January 17 with volunteers who are helping prepare the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in Sochi to start in February 2014.

They will review the goals and objectives of the Olympic volunteer programme and volunteers’ work. “The volunteers will speak about their functions and their expectations for the Games,” the presidential press service said on Thursday, January 16.

The volunteer programme is one of the key innovation projects launched by the Sochi 2014 Organising Committee. Volunteers make up 35 percent of the service personnel at the Olypics.

“Extensive work was done to hire volunteers. As a result, about 200,000 candidates were registered, with about 25,000 of them selected and trained subsequently. The volunteer team Sochi2014 includes representatives from all Russian regions and 60 foreign countries,” the presidential press service said.
