The 2018 marks the 100 anniversary of the Komsomol.

This year marks the 100 anniversary of the Komsomol - the All-Union Lenin Communist Union of Youth. This organization was established on October 29 1918 of the year as the Russian Communist Youth Union (RKSM). A year later, in 1924, it was renamed the Leninist Communist Youth Union of Russia (RLKSM). Then, after two years, in 1926, she was given the final name of the All-Union Leninist Communist Youth Union. This was facilitated by the formation of the USSR in 1922 year.

Through the organization, active ideological, cultural, educational and educational work of the youth was carried out, as well as political and public programs were carried out. VLKSM was the right hand of the Communist Party. And in 1922, thanks to the leadership of the Komsomol, it became possible to create a children's political organization: the All-Russian (and later the All-Union) Pioneer Organization named after V. I. Lenin.

The Komsomol organization played a significant role in the accomplishment of party tasks, such as the restoration of the national economy, collectivization, industrialization, and the cultural revolution, which resulted in the development of science and art.

The organizers and participants of the festival “Russian Student Spring”, which will be held this year in Stavropol from 15 to 20 in May, will join the celebration of the anniversary. As Pavel Krasnorutsky, chairman of the Russian Youth Union, explained at a press conference, a large bloc is scheduled by the youth organization during the event at the closing ceremony dedicated to the anniversary of the All-Union Leninist Young Communist League. Through the experience gained from Soviet youth through creativity and art during the festival, a parallel will be drawn between the Komsomol and modern youth organizations. Pavel noted that the Komsomol no longer exists, but in spite of this, the design and program activity of the Komsomol continues. And the theme of the anniversary of the Komsomol organization will be reflected also in the course of other events of the “Russian Student Spring”.
