“I was invited to give a lecture about prospects of development of youth diplomacy in the EEU space by the Gorchakov Fund and RAU in Yerevan at summer school “The Eurasian Integration Project from the Perspective of Modern Geopolitical Dimensions”. I believe that youth is a driver of relations between our countries and youth diplomacy in the EEU space has all the opportunities for strengthening relations between the nations of the union and advancing relations in the future onto a new level. In the future, active leaders of youth events and conferences will become leaders in their countries and will be governing our countries based on the same independent, constructive and inclusive beginnings. We hope to see as many possible representatives from Armenia and all the EEU member states at the World Festival of Youth and Students 2017 in Sochi in less than three months! I am especially pleased to participate in the event together with Yelena Kuzmina, who will speak to the attendees of the School about political and economic aspects of increasing integration in the Eurasian space”, Roman Chukov wrote on his page o Facebook.
