During a trip to Veliky Novgorod, the Head of State visited the classrooms of School 21, a Sberbank project that provides the opportunity to receive a first-class education in the field of information technologies for free. During the excursion, Gref said that 28 regions requested the opening of educational institutions of this type. He noted that all project equipment is produced by Sber. The bank director added that the president would be of great help if he ordered him to support the project.

“I would say that if a billion a year were allocated, it would be fantastic,” Gref said.

“Good. I took it out with tweezers,” Putin smiled, jokingly shaming Gref for being “so rich and asking for a billion.”

Let us remember that on Thursday, September 21, Vladimir Putin visited Veliky Novgorod. During the trip he spoke with the SVO participants and also held a meeting with the university students who won the high-tech championship.
