Proposed participation[edit]

Wikimedians of Bashkortostan User Group is organizing Wiki seminar in YanganTau Resort. I am helping to organize it and invited to participate. I am planning to speak about my own Wikipedia and Wikimedia experience, to participate in translation workshop and other events and to promote international bilateral and multilateral wiki-cooperation.

Goal and expected impact[edit]

I hope that we will receive all planned goals and my knowledge will be useful for Bashkir coleagues. I plan to continue my work together with Bashkir wiki-comunity in the future and expect that cooperation will be more fruitful.

Budget breakdown[edit]

Round trip from Kyiv to Ufa will cost USD 400.

Other instructions[edit]

Due to political situation, currently there is no fligts between Ukraine and Russia (there are only buses and trains, and the border is opened). But situation is changing rapidly. So, as for today I plan to flight from nearest countries (from Chișinău, Moldova, or from Minsk, Belarus), because fligts from Kyiv to Ufa now expensive and not comfortable (with many changes, even in far countries).

So, I need plain tickets with round trip Chișinău/Minsk-Ufa (via Moscow) and tickets for bus/train from Kyiv to Chișinău (Minsk).

I need Wikimedia Foundation to book air tickets for me. Other variants of flights even via other countries will be also suitable. I just need a possibility to take luggage (up to 23 kg). Tickets for transportation from Kyiv to the airport city by bus or by train can be bought by WMF or reimbursed after the trip.

To minimize possible risks, I kindly ask you to buy me tickets one week before the trip.
