Sports in the Far East: Creating New Opportunities
We will present specific proposals in the near future. Now is the time to integrate the work done by the government and business sector, so that the sports development strategy [Development Strategy for Physical Culture and Sport in the Russian Federation to 2030 – ed.] is implemented

Sports in the Far East: Creating New Opportunities
Unless we build business partnerships, some projects will be very difficult to implement. These include infrastructure projects, personnel training initiatives, and international cooperation. <...> Our position at the Ministry of Sport is that we want to understand which projects are being overseen by companies in the regions so that we can draw up a map of sporting infrastructure. We know that companies are building [sporting facilities – ed.], but we do not have an understanding of the overall sports budget – how much is being invested, and where. We do not have a clear picture of that

Sports in the Far East: Creating New Opportunities
Sport and the spirit of victory permeates everything here [in the Far East – ed.]. We must not lose this. We are holding talks with the BRICS and SCO nations to hold competitions and meetings here [in the Far East – ed.]. We are not isolating ourselves. The position of Russian President Vladimir Putin is that we are a self-sufficient sporting power. We have massive sporting resources, and have revived the Spartakiad movement. <...> A proposal has been submitted to the Government of the Russian Federation to establish national and regional sports training centres, [with – ed.] the Far East being prioritized

Sports in the Far East: Creating New Opportunities
Sport is not just something which comes under the purview of the Ministry of Sport; it forms a significant part of government policy. Sport helps make people healthy, successful, and patriotic, and helps ensure steady economic growth. Developing the Far East’s potential is not just about buildings and facilities. The biggest potential lies in the region’s people. Training personnel is a foundational element of developing sport in the Far East. We’re talking about instructors and coaches. And we should not forget about the potential of sports diplomacy. This is where athletes trained for Seoul and for Tokyo in 1964. There have been Olympic champions thanks to the training setup here and the unwavering attention given by the region’s governors. We see enormous potential here through the construction of infrastructure. The federal university should become a base for the development of mass sports. The university has more than 30,000 students, which is also key to fostering a culture of doing sports and leading a healthy lifestyle

Sport Without Borders: New Scenarios and Formats
Yes, we have lost the training camps that we had in the Soviet Union in our republics, but we have been analyzing the camps in the highlands, middle mountains, Siberia, the Far East for the past two months and we can see that we are able to provide our athletes with a training process for a full preparation. We had an incredible experience preparing for the Olympic Games in the Far East, and it was a success

Sport Without Borders: New Scenarios and Formats
The realization that the world of sports cannot develop without Russia, will come, it is already there. Another thing is that people are afraid to admit it. <...> We know an example when the tennis community reacted in no uncertain terms to the ban of our athletes from Wimbledon. <...> The voice of the real sports community did not sound in defence of Russia, it sounded in defence of the integrity of the sports world. Not only Russian and Belarusian athletes are suffering, the entire sports world is suffering

Champions: From Medal to Brand
The Ministry of Sport does not use the opportunities that give social networks enough. We will certainly pay the most serious attention to this, because the most important thing is the value of communication, human communication. And sports have huge potential. When people join sports groups, they start communicating. But these are usually some specific tasks set by the coach, and these tasks sometimes narrow the worldview and horizons of the athletes. The paths to the medal and from the medal to the brand are not two different paths. It is one path. You cannot win a medal and then start from scratch to move to the brand

Champions: From Medal to Brand
The most important role of the Ministry of Sports today, is to create opportunities for an open dialogue with society, with athletes, with coaches in order to realistically assess the current situation and all the risks that arise due to very tough sanctions from international sports organizations. On the other hand, we need to evaluate our resources, and understand the potential of our national sports system

The Sanitary Shield. How to Prevent New Pandemics
As we were locking down federal sports bases, the athletes were not happy with that, many coaches said, “Why, the Olympics are coming!” It was not easy to explain that if someone got ill and if we did not comply with the requirements, if we did not make a temporary break in training, it could be impossible to resume, a career might be ruined and even a life might be lost. We found understanding with the sports community. It is crucial that everyone is responsible for everyone. If we want to go on working and living effectively, communicate, we should understand that each and every one of us is responsible
