Minister of Sports of the Russian Federation

Dear Friends!

On behalf of the Ministry of Sports of the Russian Federation and personally on myself let me greet the Editorial Staff and readers of the first Russian-English federal edition Sports of Russia.

The goal of the state policy in the sphere of physical training and sports is the creation of conditions ensuring the possibility for the citizens of the Russian Federation of pursuing the healthy way of life. To a certain extent we have achieved the main thing –  stabilization of the situation with the development of physical training and sports in this country. During the recent years we have improved all main indicators of our branch, including the questions of the mass-scale and physical training of the population, training of sports reserves and top achievement sports. Among the important achievements is the assignment in the federal budget of the separate section physical training and sports, introduction of considerable amendments in the branch Federal Target program, improvement of the material and technical base, increase in sports financing.

But now with the adoption of the state program of the Russian Federation Development of Physical Training and Sports, envisaged for the period until 2020 we have to do even more. I hope that the appearance of the first Russian-English federal sports edition will provide for the popularization of the achievements of our sports both in Russia and abroad.

I wish the Editorial Staff and readers of the Sports of Russia interesting, informative and useful materials!
