The head of Yakutia, Egor Borisov, said at the news conference that the republic pays more attention to the preparation of the summer 'Children of Asia' International Sports Games than the winter ones.

"This is due to the fact that in Sakhalin in 2019 we will not be represented in all kinds of competitions. Therefore, now the emphasis is more on the Summer Games of 2020," the head of the republic said.

Note that 1st Winter ‘Children of Asia’ International Sports Games will be held in the Sakhalin region next year - now the region is actively preparing for large-scale competitions. 7th Summer Games for the first time will be held outside Yakutia - Mongolia will host the ‘Children of Asia’ Games in 2020.
