On February 23 25, 2018 in the Demino Ski Centre there was the 35th (Winter) Youth Rally of UEC-Saturn (a part of United Engine Corporation (JSC), a Rostec State Corporation company). All the attendees of the rally were pleased with the beauty of winter nature, spectacular contests, unforgettable impressions and the brightest emotions. The recipe for the secret of the event is a high level of the participating teams readiness, the organizers professionalism and, of course, the support lent by VTB Bank, title sponsor of the rally. And one more contributor here is the urgency of the rallys main topics reflected in the rich program of the event: a voluntary movement the year 2018 is announced to be a volunteers year in Russia, the already completed Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang and the presidential elections to take place in the RF on March 18.
From year to year Saturn’s youth rally movement picks up steam, expands its geography and attracts active, purposeful, talented young men and women from among the employees of UEC-Saturn and other Russian companies belonging to Rostec and UAC.

18 teams took part in the 35th (Winter) Youth Rally of UEC-Saturn. The program of the event – its sports and creative parts – consisted of 18 types of contests. The participants’ geography covered 6 cities (Rybinsk, Moscow, Lytkarino, Perm, Omsk and Komsomolsk-on-Amur) and 9 enterprises: UEC-Saturn, UEC-Gas Turbines, SatIZ, UEC-Perm Engines, Gas-Turbine Engineering Research and Production Centre “Salut”, Chernyshev Moscow Machine-Building Enterprise, Lytkarino Machine-Biulding Plant - a subsidiary of UEC- Ufa Engine Industrial Association, Omsk Engine Design Bureau, Gagarin Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aircraft Plant – a subsidiary of Sukhoi Company.

As pointed out by Andrei Dunaev, a representative of the title sponsor, Head of VTB Bank in the Yaroslavl Region, “I am very pleased at our bank having supported such remarkable events for a number of years. Thanks to UEC-Saturn management’s initiative such events unite young people from all over the country. And it has been demonstrated once again.”

Following the 35th (Winter) Youth Rally of UEC-Saturn the leaders are the teams “Nasledniki” (Successors) (1st place and Cup in Memory of Andrei Savin, UEC-Gas Turbines), “Aerofan” (2nd place, UEC-Saturn) and “NanoEzhiki” (NanoHedgehogs) (3rd place, UEC-Saturn). The Sergey Lobastov Challenge Cup was given to the team “Zheltye Apelsiny” (Yellow Oranges) (UEC-Gas Turbines).

The 35th (Winter) Youth Rally of UEC-Saturn was opened on February 23 on the Fatherland Defender's Day. According to Viktor Polyakov, Deputy General Director – Managing Director of UEC-Saturn, “it is symbolic because these are young people who take part in the rally – they are engineers and workers whose labour, intellect and hands ensure the nation’s dignity, the country’s strength and power.”

“Attending such a rally is always a festive occasion for me. Contact with young people allows me to plunge into my own youth – into the past and what is essential – into our future.  On March 18, 2018 there will be presidential elections in the RF – the most important event in the life of the country.  The common argument ‘all is already decided by the people above’ is not for us, - mentioned Viktor Polyakov. – As the Chairman of the regional division of Russia’s Mechanical Engineers Union” I often have to visit manufacturing enterprises of the region. At meetings with labour collectives I see the interest of the young and people of all ages in social life. I see citizens’ active stand in life. A lot depends on it. And I am appealing all the engine builders to go to polling stations on March 18. By electing a president we vote for the future of our country.”

The organizers of UEC-Saturn’s youth rallies always keep up with the times. This year the creative contest “Homework” has been dedicated to electing the president of the 35th youth rally: the teams submitted a visual about their candidate to the judges’ approval. Also there was held an extramural stage of the project “Lets’ Decide Together!” related to the selection of city-owned premises to be improved. The Election Day on March 18 will show how much the way of the rally youth’s thinking  coincides with the outcome of the real voting within the framework of this regional governor’s project.

 “Our Volunteer Team” – even the name of the team introduction contest reminds of another main topic of the rally. “This topic is familiar to the company’s youth movement, - says Oleg Rozin, Chairman of UEC-Saturn’s Youth Board. - We strive for our employees as volunteers to find themselves in the thick of the most interesting and important events”

The organizers did not keep away from the subject of Winter Olympiad-2018 and arranged their own Demino Olympic Games. On the days of the rally the participants designed, manufactured and presented suits for the national Olympic team.

The rally program included lots of other contests and competitions developing creative and intellectual abilities, promoting values of active rest, a healthy lifestyle, contributing to the strengthening of team spirit, business relations and personal contacts.

According to Artem Tikhonov, Chief Judge of the rally – Head of UEC-Saturn’s Social Programs Department, “the rally movement has surely become part of the company’s youth life. It is essential that there is no change in the attitude of the management to such events, that we are supported, heard and considered to be equal. Approving themselves within the youth movement, company employees are at the forefront of both production activities and social and political life. Therefore I am convinced that our young people are certain to mobilize and make their choice during the main event of the country.”
