The Governor of Primorsky Krai Oleg Kozhemyako presented his vision of a strategy for the development of sports in Russia. He proposes to create a network of sports clubs throughout the country in which middle and older citizens could be involved.

The head of the region voiced his proposals during a meeting of the working group to prepare a meeting of the Presidential Council on the development of physical education and sports. In his opinion, it is necessary to improve the organization of competitions from the municipal to the All-Russian level, including the development of the All-Russian Spartakiad among subjects for various population groups.

Oleg Kozhemyako also touched upon the topic of financing sports from extrabudgetary sources. In 2018, expenses for sports events amounted to 67 billion rubles. However, these statistics do not include extrabudgetary expenses from the all-Russian sports federations and other public organizations, and do not fully show the costs of professional sports and the activities of fitness clubs. It, according to the governor, needs to be improved.

The necessity of using the land of the Ministry of Defense for the construction of bicycle and racetracks, flat structures is noted. This will help to massively engage citizens in their favorite and affordable sports.
