SOCHI, February 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko has promised the volunteers’ centres set up before the Sochi Olympics will be preserved after the Games.
“All of our volunteers are good-looking, educated and have a good command of a foreign language, and many of them know several languages,” he said at a news conference in the Olympic media center on Friday.
“The fact was an absolute revelation for our guests,” Mutko said adding that he didn’t understand “why they thought it wouldn't be like that, though, and they are elated by their [the volunteers’] work now.”
“If speaking of the future of the volunteering movement, we’re going to preserve all the volunteers’ centres and to use their expertise later in other sports events,” he said. “We’ll focus not only on sport institutes but on other higher educational institutions as well. We think they will offer good practice for the guys."
