The President of Russia Vladimir Putin has addressed to participants of the world festival of youth and students in Sochi in English. It is reported RIA Novosti on Saturday, October 21.
The head of state noted that the future is in the hands of the participants: “Future starts here and now future is you”. Putin added that the festival has an unusual “energy of youth”, and expressed confidence in its utility for all 30 thousand guests.
“I am confident that, leaving Russia, you will leave here a piece of my heart. But Russia will always remain in your heart. We believe in you,” he said.
Finally, he wished everyone “all the best” (all the best). The participants of the festival started in response to chant “thank you,” and Putin was photographed with those on stage.
