MOSCOW, August 2 (Itar-Tass) - President Vladimir Putin will pay his fourth visit to the Seliger youth camp in Tver Region on Friday, August 2.
He will meet with the participants of the so-called Civil Forum, which has become the closing event of this year’s youth camp and has brought together more than 5,000 representatives from the youth divisions of political parties and public organizations, and civil activists.
The first two are Youth Project Forum and Business Forum. More than 15,000 people from Russian regions and abroad have visited the camp this year.
Visits to Seliger by top leaders have become a tradition. Putin was there in 2009, 2011 and 2012. Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, presidential chief of staff Sergei Ivanov and ministers visited the camp as well.
Seliger is a youth educational forum held since 2005 on Lake Seliger in the Tver region, near the city of Ostashkov (370 kilometers from Moscow). The Federal Agency for Youth Affairs is the organizer of the forum.
This is an educational mega project that brings together the leaders of Russian youth organisations and thousands of the best students who are interested in politics, economics and innovations.
According to Sergei Belokonev, Head of the Federal Agency for Youth Affairs, about 250 million rubles from the budget have been invested in this year’s forum. Sponsors and regional authorities made their contributions as well.
