100 Young Russians to Watch

This is the eighth article in our nine-part series: 100 Young Russians to Watch. In this issue we present ten notable individuals—from a chocolatier to a public defender, from an actor and a border guardian to an art dealer and a TV personality ... All personify the sort of excellence and hope which embody a positive Russian future.

To be selected as one of our 100 Young Russians, individuals must meet the following criteria: the individual is a citizen of Russia; the individual is 45 years of age or under; the individual has made a significant, positive contribution to his or her sphere of activity and shows particular promise for a lifetime of achievement; the individual’s achievement and promise is recognized by Russian and international observers.

Special thanks in putting together this selection of young individuals goes to Boleslav Lihterman from Meditsinskaya Gazeta,  Nikolai Poroskov (Vek weekly), Sport-Express daily, Andrei Zelenov, Korkunov company press service, Galina Papernaya (Kommersant daily), Aidan Salakhova Art Gallery, Sergei Bykhal  (Transaero) and Alexei Svistunov (PARI Agency).
