The St. Petersburg Sports and Patriotic Forum was held online on September 17, 2021. The forum was attended by about 10 thousand people from many regions of Russia, including Volgograd, Rostov, Krasnodar, Chelyabinsk, Kaliningrad, Murmansk, Vladivostok, Cherkessk, Novgorod. The online format caused by this pandemic, on the one hand, did not allow everyone to meet in person, on the other hand, significantly strengthened the geography of participation. Registration of participants was announced long before the start, until the last there was hope for the possibility of holding the event in full-time format, but reality has made its own adjustments.
Last weekend, meetings were held in several regions of Russia following the results of the forum, with the discussion of topical issues, which began in 2021. The issues of military-patriotic education, the development of military-applied sports, the training of the personnel reserve, the development of a system of clubs working with teenagers and youth, all issues are very relevant.
