The fate of the 5th Interstate Russian-Armenian Youth Forum was finally predetermined. It will take place on November 24-27 in Moscow. It should be reminded that Iravunk had mentioned that the Russian side's letters had remained unanswered for a long time and it was questionable whether the forum would take place this year or not.

We also asked the Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Armenia Gevorg Lorejyan for the aforementioned issue, who informed that the 5th Armenian-Russian Youth Forum is planned to be held in Armenia in November. Moreover, in response to our inquiry, the deputy minister said: “Taking into consideration the fact that the 4th forum was held in Russia in November 2018 and the next forum is to be held in Armenia, we have planned to hold the 5th Armenian-Russian Youth Forum in 2019. In Armenia. Currently, the Armenian body responsible for organizing the forum is the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport of the Republic of Armenia, which has informed both the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation about its readiness to continue the tradition of the forums and has offered Armenian- 5th Russian Youth Forum to be held in 2019 in Armenia in November. ”

Referring to the above mentioned, Russian political scientist Mariam Hovsepyan told us: “In 2014, raising the idea of ​​holding a bilateral forum with various officials in Moscow and achieving results, the first Armenian-Russian intergovernmental youth forum in Armenia took place in 2015, and later I also fought for its establishment and longevity. I am glad that the forum will be held this year too. Of course, according to tradition, this year it should have been in Yerevan, but since the ministry still lacks stability to break the chain of Russian-Armenian forums, this year too the Russian side assumed responsibility for holding it and it will take place in Moscow. "

Anyway, didn't the Armenian side's proposal accept Russia or the ministry lied, saying that they offered to hold the forum in Armenia, this is not the only problem. It is not lost on our eyes that the forum announcement states that one of the conditions for participation is the commitment to pay for the Yerevan-Moscow-Yerevan travel. In fact, it turns out that anyone between the ages of 16 and 30 can attend this forum only if they pay their own way. Of course, one could get upset that the ministry could not afford the 25-person delegation's trip if it were not known just days ago that the ministry had allocated 2.7 million drams for a disgraceful event at the Republic Square metro station. Speaking of such a widespread statement, M. Hovsepyan added: “The ticket price will remain on the shoulders of the participants, which, in my opinion, is not appropriate for an intergovernmental forum. I am sorry that there will be people who are worthy of participating in the forum and can be effective with their participation but may not come because of the airline fee. In any case, I hope that young people from Armenia who are truly advocates of Armenian-Russian relations will come from Armenia who have something to say both during this forum and afterwards, working in Armenia to further deepen relations between the two states, not will come just to see Moscow.
