On October 8, 2016, the Open republican festival in powerlifting “Power of Republic” took place. The event was attended by the Chairman of the DPR People’s Council Denis Pushilin and Minister of Youth Policy, Sports and Tourism Michael Mishin.
Denis Pushilin noted that the leadership of the Republic is trying to provide maximum support for proponents of sporting events and healthy lifestyle devotees.
“For our young Republic every sporting event this is a big step forward. The leadership of the Republic fully supports the healthy lifestyle. The number of sports grounds and complexes must not simply increase – their attendance should be as accessible as possible to young people,” the Chairman of the People’s Council said.
According to the Minister of Youth Policy, Sports and Tourism, the basis of a healthy society is the health of individual citizens.
“A healthy state is, above all, healthy people. It contributes to the prosperity and improvement of the state system as a whole,” Michael Mishin said.
The Speaker of Parliament expressed his gratitude to the organisers of the sporting event and wished the participants good results.
“The participants of the competition, I wish you all the best and wish you to show good results. Thanks also to the sports complex “SportMAX” and event organisers,” Denis Pushilin thanked.
