Yevgeny Primakov, who was recently appointed head of Rossotrudnichestvo by presidential decree, named our region among those with which the department is ready to conclude a partnership agreement among the first.

Volgogradskaya Pravda.ru reports about these words of an influential expert, international journalist and grandson of the ex-Prime Minister of the Russian Federation and renowned diplomat Yevgeny Maksimovich Primakov.

The head of Rossotrudnichestvo made a statement during an online meeting with journalists and the expert community. New priorities were discussed, as well as the nearest plans of the department.

Yevgeny Primakov stressed that he considers it important to work with the regions of the country, aimed at expanding and strengthening ties abroad, primarily at the level of social interaction. The head of Rossotrudnichestvo noted that he recently traveled to Oryol. A corresponding agreement was signed there.

– In September I’m going to come to Volgograd. We are also planning to conclude a cooperation agreement there, ” Yevgeny Primakov said and added that strengthening twin cities’ ties, as well as developing partnerships between the regions of the Russian Federation and abroad is one of the priorities of Rossotrudnichestvo.

Note that Volgograd is considered the recognized capital of public diplomacy. For several years the region has been developing international partnership. The first agreement with the British city of Coventry was signed in 1944 – thus, Volgograd is the founder of the movement of twin cities in the world. Now the regional center has 22 twin cities, as well as several partner cities in neighboring countries.

At the initiative of the head of the region, Andrei Bocharov, in recent years, the Volgograd Region has been holding traditional meetings within the framework of the Dialogue on the Volga project. They discuss topical issues of the development of public diplomacy, interaction of regions and cities with foreign partners, as well as the implementation of joint projects.

The annual event in Volgograd is attended by representatives of government agencies, public organizations of the Russian Federation and other countries. It is planned that the next meetings of the “Dialogue on the Volga” project will be held this fall.
