MOSCOW, January 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree to prepare and hold the 29th World Winter University Games in Russian Siberia’s Krasnoyarsk in 2019. The document was posted at the Kremlin official website on Tuesday.
Putin instructed the country’s government to form an organizing committee of the Winter Universiade in 2019 and take all the measures to prepare and hold the Universiade jointly with Krasnoyarsk territorial authorities.
The president also instructed to make up a list of construction sites needed to prepare and hold the 29th World Winter University Games in Krasnoyarsk with the funding from federal budget allocations.
The government was instructed to assist in the coverage of Krasnoyarsk Universiade in state media, including the coverage of pressing problems in development of student sports.
Putin also recommended in his decree to Russian regional authorities to participate in the measures over the Winter Universiade in the Siberian city.
On November 9, 2013, in Brussels the International Federation of University Sports (FISU) voted for the city of Krasnoyarsk to host the 29th World Winter Universiade. Winter Universiades were never held in Russia before.
The latest Summer Universiade was held in Russian Tatarstan’s capital Kazan in 2013.
