Vladimir Putin:

Mr Medinsky, what about Russian theatres' touring activities on the whole? How do you see the situation?

From the response of Vladimir Medinsky, the Minister for Culture of the Russian FederationL

We are making efforts to support the most successful cultural institutions in their touring activities and in general. For instance, five years ago the Vakhtangov Theatre had two stages, while this year we will open the fifth and sixth stages, all at one venue on Arbat Street. This is going to be a theatre complex.

I would like to take the opportunity, Mr President, and extend an invitation from theatre professionals to you. A contest of young theatre directors will take place this November. These are young directors, future artistic directors of our theatres; they are a new generation growing up to take the lead. The finals of the contest will be held at the Vakhtangov Theatre on November 10. We would be happy to see you during the conclusion of that festival.

Vladimir Putin:

Thank you very much. Thank you for the invitation and for the information
