Vladimir Putin took part in a volunteer training session held in the format of an intellectual game.
The meeting was attended by volunteers from 15 Russian regions chosen to work at the 29th Winter Universiade, which will be held in Krasnoyarsk in 2019. A total of 5,000 volunteers will be involved in the games.
Over 36,000 applications were sent in for the job. The recruiting centre holds about 80 interviews daily, both onsite and remotely.
The lists will be finalised by the end of this year. After the selection, all volunteers receive special training, including courses in the history of Krasnoyarsk and the English language.
The 29th Winter Universiade will be held on March 2–12, 2019, in Krasnoyarsk.
