Youth activists from 18 to 30 years old from more than 30 countries of the world have become participants in the Compatriots congress, which takes place in Moscow. The five-day program of the forum includes meetings and discussions, as well as excursions, cultural trips and a voyage to Samara, the website of the Foundation for Support and Protection of Rights of Compatriots Living Abroad reports.

The forum is meant to unite young compatriots and include their activities and plans in the Russian youth agenda. The events of the congress are aimed at enhancing relations between the youth of Russia and compatriots living outside our country.

It is expected that the forum will result in joint projects of Russian and foreign youth organizations, the development of interaction systems and the creation of an event program in the framework of intercultural dialogue.

Russkiy Mir reported that United by Spirit Forum opened in early August in Ryazan. It united young Russian compatriots from ten countries. Participants discussed the preservation of historical, spiritual and cultural memory.
