Kaliningrad continues to be an active member of UBC

UBC Vice-President and Rakvere Mayor Andres Jaadla participated in the Kaliningrad City Days Celebrations on July 7-8.

During the visit Jaadla met with Kaliningrad Mayor Alexander Yaroshuk and representatives of the city who assured Jaadla that Kaliningrad is as committed as ever to take part in the activities of UBC. Mayor Alexander Yaroshuk said that Kaliningrad considers itself to be a developing Russian city and wishes to be the bridge that links Russia with Europe.

As the Vice-President of UBC, Jaadla invited the representatives of Kaliningrad to the next Executive Board meeting which will take place in Koszalin, Poland (October 4, 2012).

This year’s Kaliningrad city days were a joint event along with the Fisherman’s Day and the national Family Day. On the whole it was a grand event and the entire visit can be considered a success.

During the visit mayors Yaroshuk and Jaadla as well as Kaliningrad Region governor Nikolay Tsukanov also took part in the inauguration ceremony of Kaliningrad’s newly completed school complex No. 56. It is a modern educational establishment with two standard-sized sports halls, a swimming-pool, a football field with artificial grass and an athletics stadium. The school is meant for around a thousand children and is furnished with up-to-date learning facilities. Jaadla noted that it is undoubtedly one of the most modern schools in the Baltic Sea region.
