President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Friends, I am very happy to be here with you, participants of the Russia – Land of Opportunity forum.
People of various ages and occupations have gathered here, but all of you have something in common, something very important. All of you are talented, active, interesting and amazing people.
You have passed through various contests and festivals and have achieved positive results. We have many such people in Russia, from Kaliningrad to Kamchatka, from Murmansk and Arkhangelsk in the north to Sochi and Sevastopol.
I will say that Russia is interested in seeing each of you succeed because each success contributes to the success of our homeland, Russia. I would sincerely like you to achieve everything you are striving for of and dreaming of.
I know, of course, that many of you will implement your plans; in fact, all of you can do that. But in order to start this additional internal engine in each heart, I would like to ask each of you, can you do it?
Audience: Yes, I can!
Vladimir Putin: It would be difficult to expect a different answer from this audience. And our country, our homeland, our beloved Russia, expects and wants you to implement all your plans, all your dreams and ideas, because if this happens, the entire country will develop along with you. It will look forward to the future; it will be a country we will all be proud of. We are proud now, and will be in the future, too.
We will provide for its future, and we will do this together. Yes?
Vladimir Putin: I wish you success. Thank you very much.
