DRJUG Members Meeting with Germany's Federal Foreign Minister Heiko Maas
DRJUG Members, together with participants of the III German - Russian Youth forum "Capital talks", met the Federal Foreign Minister Minister Heiko Maas on on 22nd of August in Moscow. The minister encouraged the team by stating that “we need the younger generation in the German-Russian relations”. Among the discussed issues were: changing the visa regime for young people, digitalisation and the results of our DRJUG's recent Capital Talks 2019 forum.
The idea of creating the youth association “DRJUG” was initially presented at the German-Russian Youth Parliament. It was designed as an organisation that fosters contacts between young representatives of the two countries. For the past six years “DRJUG” members have organized a number of international events, ranging from round-tables to trilateral forums (e.g. German-Russian-Ukrainian and German-Polish-Russian forums).
