On September 21, 2023, the city of Voronezh hosted the youth forum “Deistvuy!” (“Do It!”) organized by the region’s Civic Chamber. The forum which went for more than 7 hours included lectures, trainings, discussions, and roundtable talks on relevant social issues. Renowned figure-skater Alexei Yagudin was a special guest of the forum. Voronezh Oblast Governor Aleksandr Gusev made a welcoming speech.
