It was decided to postpone the Yalta International Economic Forum (YIEF), TASS reports. Earlier, due to restrictions aimed at combating the spread of coronavirus infection, it was postponed to a later date. Now it has been postponed to the next year.

According to the head of Crimea, Sergei Aksyonov, in 2021 the forum will be held in the spring.

Aksyonov explained that the unfavorable epidemiological situation forced him to abandon the plans outlined for the current year. In addition, in Yalta, cases of infection were recorded among employees of government bodies, and the government switched to work online.

The work of the organizing committee of the forum will be headed by the Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Marat Khusnullin. A very large-scale international agenda is expected,  Aksyonov said.

Crimea was to host the forum for the 5th time. Last year, the forum gathered more than 3,000 guests from 100 countries. The delegates included businessmen, politicians, government officials, deputies of national and European parliaments. Delegations from Belgium, Italy, Germany and Austria have traditionally become guests of the forum. For the first time, representatives of Great Britain came to Yalta.

More than 50 thematic sessions were held within the framework of the forum. They covered a wide variety of economic topics, ranging from tourism and winemaking to construction and agriculture.

On September 1, millions of children in Russia went to school. And millions of their peers in Ukraine also went to schools. Everything seems to be the same: flowers, bows, well-dressed children, excited parents... And yet there is a difference and a very significant one: children in Russia go to schools to study in their native language. However, starting with this academic year, hundreds of thousands of Russian-speaking children no longer have this opportunity in Ukraine.
