Within the framework of the international forum "Sport. Leadership. Unity", which was held in Ufa from September 3 to 4, an expanded meeting of the Public Council of the Regional Representation of the Assembly of the Peoples of Eurasia in the Republic of Bashkortostan (Russia) was held under the chairmanship of the Prime Minister of the Government of the Republic of Bashkortostan Andrey Nazarov.


Measures aimed at supporting the sports industry were discussed at the meeting.


The Secretary General of the Assembly of the Peoples of Eurasia conveyed greetings to the participants of the meeting Andrey Belyaninov, who stressed that the initiative and energy of the organizers and participants of the forum are able not only to solve the tasks of promoting the idea of increasing the role of sports in modern society, but can also become an incentive to search for a new vector of development in the world of big sports.


Forum "Sport. Leadership. Unity" opens a series of events dedicated to the large-scale international competitions in ethnic sports "Towards the Eurasiad", which will be held in Ufa in 2024.



"These days, the traditional Ufa International Marathon is being held in the republic. Of course, the combination of the marathon and the forum gives a powerful synergistic effect. This will bring together more than 6 thousand participants from 30 countries and 11 Russian regions. I am sure that it is through sport, spirituality and national cohesion that we are able to strengthen friendship and creative cooperation between countries and peoples," said Andrei Nazarov.


The Prime Minister noted that much attention is paid to the development of sports in Bashkortostan.


"The construction of the Wrestling Palace and Fencing Center has begun. A complex for rowing slalom is being built. The Gymnastics Center named after Olympic champion Svetlana Khorkina has already opened. At the same time, we are developing new sports that are interesting for the population, for example, obstacle races. A unique track has been created in Patriot Park for the competitions, which is one of the longest in Russia," Andrei Nazarov said.


The Prime Minister stressed that in Bashkortostan since this year, grants for non-profit organizations for holding sports events have been established as a support measure. The total amount of grants allocated this year amounted to 50 million rubles. In particular, a subsidy from the Ministry of Sports of the Republic was allocated for the implementation of the international forum "Sport. Leadership. Unity".


According to the Minister of Sports of the Republic of Bashkortostan Ruslan Khabibov, the Republic of Bashkortostan is one of the leading sports regions of the country.


"In the rating of regions by the number of sports facilities, Bashkortostan ranks second among the subjects of Russia after Moscow - it is more than 13 thousand sports facilities. The number of residents of the republic systematically engaged in physical culture and sports is increasing. If in 2019 this percentage was 45.2% (1.6 million people), by 2021 it has increased to 52.3% (1.9 million people), which is higher than the national average," the minister said.


He also noted that in recent years the republic has managed to increase funding for the sports industry, including through the attraction of funds from the federal budget.


Ruslan Kinzikeev, head of the Committee for Business, Scientific and Cultural Cooperation with Italy, Deputy Chairman of the Public Council of the Representative Office, told about how cooperation with the friendly Italian Republic is implemented in Bashkortostan, who made a proposal to include Italian coaches in the coaching staff of sports federations, which will help ensure the exchange of best practices.


Representatives of the largest sports associations highly appreciated the business part of the forum, held in the format of the "idea factory". In particular, the event identified optimal development vectors for the industry. They touched upon mass children's and family sports, the organization of new venues for the placement of sports facilities, and further state support.
