Alexey Sorokin, Chief Executive Officer of ANO “Organising Committee “World Friendship Games”, has climbed Mount Elbrus, the highest mountain peak in all of Russia and Europe, and planted the WFG flag on the mountain top.


The climb took several days. The team of climbers, including Alexey Sorokin, climbed the northern face of the mountain, which is considered the most difficult to approach for non-professional climbers.


Alexey Sorokin shared his impressions following the climb: “Friends, I send you warm greetings from Mount Elbrus. It was a challenging climb, but a great experience. I am glad to have conquered Europe’s highest peak, and I hope that the World Friendship Games will conquer the hearts of millions of sports fans all over the world.”
