The NCFU is hosting the Election Culture Week, which is to focus on developing active civil views among youngsters and increasing their knowledge related to elections.

This week started with a meeting where students could have a talk and ask questions directly to the local MPs – Viktor Goncharov (Communist Party) and Ilya Drozdov (Liberal-Democratic Party).

The two MPs expressed their thanks to the Administration of the NCFU for the event and a chance to talk openly with the best representative of the student body. When addressing the students Vladimir Magin (Pro-Rector for Educational Activities) informed the students on the purpose of the meeting: "You are expected to have a high level of legal culture, civil awareness, and hold the Russian flag high above your heads!”.

The meeting was arranged as a Q & A event, which allowed covering a wide range of issues and hold an open dialogue.

The young people were interested in everything from young generations’ being involved into politics to the events in Ukraine and the further development of the North Caucasus. Of course, the opinions expressed were very much different, yet there was one thing in common – interest in the future of Russia and readiness to lock arms in a joint effort despite belonging to different parties.

"We place a lot of hope on you. You were born in the new Russia, and it is important that Russia develop dynamically and in the right direction, so that laws should be working here. You are to carry further the great Russian traditions. In 2013 we started the campaign Victory Flag, the major purpose of that being raising winners, not just consumers. You should support these patriotic ideas.”, Viktor Goncharov was quoted as saying.

Ilya Drozdov, in turn, noted that the leader of the LDPR stress the importance of involving young people to the leading positions, and this has already yielded its result – there are many people just over 20 employed in the executive bodies of the Stavropol Region.

When bringing the meeting to an end Vladimir Magin invited the two MPs to join the event to be hosted by the NCFU – Forum Russian world in the Caucasus.
