100 Young Russians to Watch



We continue our year-long series on 100 Young Russians to Watch with another 16 individuals who are as diverse as they are talented. From sports stars to teachers, from artists to businesspeople, these 16 individuals are personifications of Russia’s future.

To be selected as one of our 100 Young Russians, individuals must meet the following criteria: the individual is a citizen of Russia; the individual is 45 years of age or under; the individual has made a significant, positive contribution to their sphere of activity and shows particular promise for a lifetime of achievement; the individual’s achievement and promise is recognized by Russian and international observers.

Special thanks in putting together this selection of young individuals goes to Valentina Kolesnikova, Semyon Ekshtut, Alexei Dospekhov, Rick Walker, Sherry Merrick, Bolshoi Press Service and the Russian National Orchestra.
