This is due to a difficult epidemiological situation, with an increase in morbidity throughout the country, ”he told RIA Novosti.

The forum will take place as soon as the situation allows, he added.

“I apologize to the invited guests.

We will plan to hold YIEF for the next year, ”added Aksyonov.

YIEF was supposed to take place at the site of the Mriya Resort & SPA hotel in Crimea.

As previously reported, the IX St. Petersburg International Cultural Forum, scheduled for November 11-13, will not take place due to the coronavirus pandemic.
