The signing ceremony of cooperation agreements between the Primorye region, the All-Russian Rhythmic Gymnastics Federation and the Russian Artistic Gymnastics Federation took place at the RUSSIA EXPO on the Sports Day.

The participants of the signing ceremony were greeted by Oleg Matytsin, Minister of Sport of Russia: "Today we are honored to represent the achievements of Russian sports and the domestic school of sports, and, of course, the signing of these agreements is a very important part of today's celebration. Because the task set by the President of the Russian Federation - to provide our citizens with comfortable conditions for sports - is being fulfilled, and we are happy when we are in such a commonwealth, and we are proud of our successes and look with confidence into the future. I want to thank you for your teamwork, because teamwork and team spirit today is probably more important than ever. Let the new gymnastics center give joy to thousands of boys and girls who will look up to our Olympic champions. Fare thee well!".

The cooperation necessary for further development of gymnastics in the Primorye region, including on the basis of the modern Gymnastics Center in Vladivostok, was announced by the participants of the signing at the Meeting of the Presidential Council for the Development of Physical Culture and Sports, which was held in October 2023.

"Here in Primorye we are embarking on a grandiose project. On the instructions of our President, a Federal Sports and Training Center will be created in Vladivostok, which will include development centers for artistic and rhythmic gymnastics, hockey, boxing, water sports, athletics, tennis, and the Center for artistic and rhythmic gymnastics is the first swallow in the halo of these sports facilities. It is very important for us that our athletes are trained in gyms of such level. And we see that the Pacific Ocean and Primorye bring good luck: for example, our Primorye gymnast Lilia Akhaimova became an Olympic champion in Tokyo. That is why we have done everything to make this project happen, so that stars would light up more often and lead us to new victories," said Oleg Kozhemyako, Governor of the Primorye region.

Prospects of cooperation under the agreements cause joy and enthusiasm of all its participants.

"I want to thank the Governor of the Primorye region, who has created all conditions for us to prepare for the Olympic Games, and for training, and for food, and for medical care for our children. He is involved in everything, and just look at his figure - he is an athlete himself and swims across the Pacific Ocean, I have seen it myself. So I am happy that now we will train in Vladivostok, because it is a place of great strength and energy. And it's a great happiness that now we will have our own gym, which we don't have to share with anyone, as we did before. And we will be happy to hold competitions there, and maybe we will live there," said Irina Viner, President of the All-Russian Rhythmic Gymnastics Federation.

 Participants of the signing ceremony also noted that domestic sports continue to develop actively despite the sanctions pressure.

"Our competitions that take place in the country are no worse in level, and often even better and brighter than any international ones, while international sport loses a lot from the fact that Russian athletes are not there. I can say this looking at the results of the last two World Championships in artistic gymnastics. We are moving forward, creating new infrastructure in very important parts of our country, and the Far East is just such a place. And we are doing this with the aim that we will definitely return to international sport and we need and value this area of the world very much. I am sure that it will be a truly beautiful and powerful center of rhythmic and artistic gymnastics, which will be loved by the whole country," Vasily Titov, President of the Russian Artistic Gymnastics Federation, is convinced.
