Petersburg school leavers are wildly optimistic about their country’s future.
Graduates of Petersburg schools will leave Russia
Twenty-five and a half thousand school leavers gathered for this year’s Scarlet Sails event [on June 23, 2013]. The massive farewell celebration set the city budget back 20 million rubles [approx. 466 000 euros].
A survey of schoolchildren at the festival revealed a huge number of young people not wanting to stay in the country. The young men and women say they do not see a future in Russia.
