The message reads, in part:
“This year Stavropol welcomes your traditional festival. Creative platforms, universities, theatres, and cultural centres in this wonderful city will play host to interesting contests and competitions and roundtable discussions with masters of arts and representatives of prestigious public organisations. And, of course, the Russian Student Spring helps talented young men and women acquire useful experience in diverse areas of endeavor, and presents them with excellent opportunities for professional growth and participation in quality forums and festivals.
I am sure that the festival will be remembered by its inspiring, friendly atmosphere and will become an exceptional and unforgettable event for everyone.”
Every year over 1.5 million students from about a thousand universities and colleges take part in different stages of the National Russian Student Spring Festival. The final stage will be held in Stavropol on May 15–20, 2018.
