The work of the International Youth Forum of Russian Compatriots Abroad "20.20" started on the eve of July 29. It is conducted online. Forum venues will cover three cities: Moscow, Samara and Volgograd. A special platform will be organized for online participants. It will host lectures and master classes. Young people will be able to ask questions to speakers and leave comments.

The forum has become one of the key platforms aimed at developing practice-oriented dialogue and interaction between Russian youth and their peers from abroad. Representatives of Russian-speaking organizations, communities, members of associations and unions of compatriots aged 18 to 40 were invited to participate in the event. 

The forum is held on the initiative of the Community of Young Compatriots with the assistance of the Russian Foreign Ministry and other departments and organizations. 

The forum of Russian compatriots was to take place at the end of September last year. Due to restrictions aimed at countering the spread of the coronavirus, it was postponed for a year.
