    First of all, Pavel Kolobkov congratulated Alexander Uss with his appointment of the Acting Head of the region. He expressed confidence that it was Alexander Uss, a native of the Krasnoyarsk Territory, who was fully able to realize the enormous potential of one of the largest constituent entities of the Russian Federation. The Minister also stressed that during his forthcoming working visit to the Krasnoyarsk Territory he intends to personally get acquainted with the process of construction and modernization of the venues of the Winter Universiade 2019 which are carried out within the framework of the Federal Target Program "Development of Physical Culture and Sport in the Russian Federation for 2016-2020" and assess the degree of work compliance with the plan.

     

    In turn, Alexander Uss accepted the congratulations with gratitude and noted that Krasnoyarsk Territory is very responsible for the implementation of the program for preparation for the Winter Universiade 2019 and is ready to fully justify the high trust of the international sports community. He declared that the readiness of the Krasnoyarsk Territory to hold major international competitions among students can now be determined at 50 percent. According to him, the preparatory work is carried out without complications.

     

    “As in any big affair, there are some problems here,” the head of the region said. “But I'm sure that all the necessary sports venues will be built. These facilities are of proper quality and as a legacy of the Winter Universiade 2019 will serve Krasnoyarsk citizens for many years, make the city of Krasnoyarsk even more attractive, add to it some kind of Siberian “capital city feeling”. It is very important for us to properly prepare the city in terms of infrastructure, appearance, and, most importantly, motivation and cohesion of people.”

     

    The Interim Governor of the Krasnoyarsk Territory thanked the Ministry of Sport of the Russian Federation and personally the Minister of Sport of the Russian Federation for supporting the implementation of such a large-scale project as Winter Universiade 2019. "I believe that Pavel Kolobkov's visit to Krasnoyarsk will add to the organization and optimism in the preparation process," Alexander Uss said after the meeting. "I am very glad that Pavel Anatolyevich considers this project as his personal task."
