Thanks to this large-scale event in the World Youth City, foreign guests were able to get to know Russia, learn about the country’s traditions and culture, and feel its multinational unity.

“People who came to the festival realized that the debate was open. Many of them say they are surprised by the variety of options and opportunities. They see the openness, the situation of young Russians, their history, their culture, and the traditions of guests from other countries. The feeling of mutual respect and understanding allows them to feel Russia in a completely different way,” said Sergei Kiriyenko, First Deputy Chief of Staff of the Presidential Executive Office and chairman of the WYF2024 Organizing Committee.
