Russia welcomes the amount of countries that sent their representatives to the International Youth Festival in Russia, but the country is not completing with anyone, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday.
"We are very pleased that so many representatives have arrived from almost 190 countries of the world, from all continents, but I want to emphasize that we are not competing with anyone, we do not want to prove anything to anyone," Putin said at meeting with the festival participants.
