During the visit delegation of RSDUY attended the Lvov round of the all-Ukrainian project “Debates” organised and held by UYS. International secretary of the RSDUY saluted the participants of the debates and described similar projects held by the Social Democrats of Russia. Together with the admission of the debates the program of the visit included negotiations on progressing of cooperation and interaction between the two youth organisations in the future. Such cooperation appears very important especially in the conditions when on the governmental level relations between the countries can only be characterised as the cold war.
