“At the festival venues it will be built a dialogue between the states on various topics and we, of course, also want to participate and identify our position, the position of young people and our state. This is a youth forum, but we all understand that this is to some extent a political event, so we want to be represented at the Forum quite weighty ,” Tibilov said.

He has added that this is a very significant event for Russia, “and for South Ossetia in particular, because the Eepublic will be represented by a large delegation.”
