In Russia today there are about seven million volunteers who are engaged in this activity regularly. In an interview with TASS said the Head of Repatriate Xenia Ruzaeva.
According to her, to count the number of volunteers is hard enough. “As to whether only those who every day is doing, or only once a week or once a month,” she said. At the same time Razuvaev noted that according to sociological research, to become volunteers in Russia are ready to 50 percent of the citizens.
“It is important to note that volunteers become an integral part of many processes. For example, we spend a lot of work with the Ministry of labour and social protection, the same story with the volunteers who work at liquidation of emergency situations”, — she said.
