"We hope that the epidemiological situation will allow us to use the new format of the wine and food festival on the New Year holidays, of course, in compliance with all the requirements of Rospotrebnadzor and with the approval of all specialized departments.  Though in a slightly modified format, with a large number of sites, allowing the audience to be maximally dispersed over numerous locations", — said the head of the Ministry Vadim Volchenko.
