Read in Russian

LUGANSK, September 5 (Lugansk Media Centre) - The Russian and the Lugansk People’s Republic Youth Parliaments signed a cooperation agreement on Thursday.

The document was signed during a round table discussion focused on youth parliamentarism as groundwork in developing public and political diplomacy of the Russian Federation and LPR.

The meeting involved deputy chairman of the Russian Youth Parliament Vladimir Pukayev, Youth Parliament member for Dagestan Zagrat Magomedov, first deputy chairman of the LPR parliament Dmitry Khoroshilov, and deputies of the Republic’s People’s Council and Youth Parliament.

The agreement is aimed to promote round table discussions, conferences, workshops, joint events, projects and programmes, institutional partnership between students and young workers of the LPR and Russia and social organisations at the republican, federal and international levels.

The cooperation agreement was signed by Pukayev and LPR Youth Parliament chairman Vadim Isayev.

“We feel Russian support every day, while Russian guests’ visit to our land give us confidence that our friendship gets stronger and that our relations develop,” Khoroshilov said.

“Today’s event is part of the annual traditional conference "Russian Regions - Donbass Cooperation." The LPR Culture, Sport and Youth Ministry proposed to sign the agreement within the framework of this forum which we supported,” Pukayev said.

He informed the round table discussion participants about the experience gained by the Russian Youth Parliament.

In the Russian Youth Parliament, two persons from each region represent regional, youth or national interests in domestic or international politics.  When it all began in 2012, 20 regions out of 85 had set up their Councils of Young Deputies.  Now their number reaches over 70, Pukayev said.

“Young legislators have become members of the Council of Legislators with a consultative vote, who take the floor at sessions and house commission meetings to bringing forward their initiatives, he said adding that this secured the right of vote at the federal level for Russian youths.

“Your help and our cooperation is very important to us; we are happy that you were responsive and agreed to help us,” LPR Youth Parliament representative Vladislava Berezyuk told the Russian guests.
