Putin to head supervisory board of new movement of children and youth
A participant in the Big Change forum proposed to the president to head the Supervisory Board. Putin signed the law on the creation of a new movement last week. Among its goals is to promote the implementation of state policy in the interests of children and youth
Vladimir Putin during a video conference with the finalists of the “Big Change” contest announced that he would head the supervisory board of the Russian movement of children and youth. The broadcast was hosted by RBC. The proposal to accept this post was voiced by one of the contestants.
“I gladly accept your offer. I hope that this communication between us and the new movement will benefit me and my colleagues, who in one way or another will be involved in the activities of the movement,— said the head of state.
The bill on the all-Russian children's movement was submitted to the State Duma in May, on the date of the 100th anniversary of the pioneers. It will bring together schoolchildren and students aged 6 to 18 years, potentially more than 18 million children can become members. Primary cells of the movement will be created in schools and colleges. Amendments to the second reading allowed property to be transferred to the ownership of the new movement: we are talking primarily about the former homes of pioneers and children's camps.
Deputy head of Rosmolodezh Damir Fattakhov in an interview with RBC said that the new children's movement could become “the key operator of children's recreation” and its participants may have priority in the distribution of vouchers to children's camps.
Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova stated that the founding congress of the organization, which will announce its creation, could be held in the second half of July, and the first congress with child delegates— in December 2022.
At this congress, participants in the movement will have to choose its name themselves. It was originally planned that the movement would be called “Big Change”, but in the second reading the State Duma excluded this option from the bill. In early July, the lower house, and then the Federation Council, approved the bill, and on the 14th, Putin signed it.

The purpose of the law on the children's movement— promotion of state policy in the interests of children and youth, as well as for participation in the upbringing of children, their professional orientation, and leisure activities. The movement will be able to receive subsidies from the federal budget, send funds to regional offices, and receive movable and immovable property from the regions.
At the same time, there is no talk of any revival of the pioneers, the Kremlin noted. According to the press secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov, “no one is going to impose anything on children”; and they themselves will be the “generator of ideas.” He also noted that the new movement is not created as an organization and will work in a more flexible format, while existing organizations will be able to move “under its umbrella”.
