100 Young Russians to Watch



This is the third article in our year-long series on 100 Young Russians to Watch. This issue we present another 10 individuals from around Russia—teachers, artists, entrepreneurs and athletes ... all personifications of Russia’s 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 Natalia Fedosova (Ogonyok magazine), Yuri Medvedev  (Vek weekly), photographer Valery Bliznyuk (for sharing with us his image for this issue’s cover), art critic Margarita Karlova, vice-chairman of the Executive Committee of the International Confederationof Artists, Valery Kuzmin, chairman of the editorial board of Diplomat magazine Yuri Tavrovsky, Vladimir Poglazov from GOSNIAS, and Konstantin Sokolov from Afanasy-Pivo.
