    Expert meeting "Development of possible mechanisms for state regulation to promote physical activity among the population in the Russian Federation"
    What could possibly prompt adults to become more physically active? "At the very least they need to have enough spare time and sufficient disposable income and if those two criteria are met people start going in for sports on their own without any prompting," believes Deputy Head of the Analytical Center Gleb Pokatovich. As he opened an expert meeting devoted to this topic Mr. Pokatovich said, "There is no time for waiting and we are going to have to find ways to get people interested in fitness and sports, however, we also need to take care to make sure the mechanisms we use are not distorted by the vestiges of the Soviet-style mandatory requirements to pass the ready for work and defense physical fitness tests."
