MOSCOW, January 01, 10:40 /ITAR-TASS/. An official site on the Internet of Russia’s presidency in the Group of Eight countries is launched at www.g8russia.ru. The site will inform on all events in the Group.

As for the topics on the site, the new resource offers multimedia content, documents and a special section Russia and G8.
The main page contains links to major social networks, where the Russian presidency has official accounts - Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
Reporters will be able to file for accreditation to the events in the framework of the Russian presidency, including the summit due on June 4-5 in Sochi.
