For the second time Model United Nations of the Russian Far East organized the only UN4MUN Conference within the territory of Russia - Far Eastern Model United Nations 2017. The Conference held on May 5 - 8, 2017 gathered at Far Eastern Federal University around 60 participants from cities of the Russian Far East as well as countries of Asia-Pacific Region including international students from Japan, Finland, Indonesia, Norway and Austria. This Conference was marked by the attendance of invited expert, main author of UN4MUN concept, the former Project Coordinator for the Global Teaching and Learning Project of the Education Outreach section, Outreach Division of the UN Department of Public Information, who currently works as Model UN Coordinator for the World Federation of UN Associations Mr. William M. Yotive. The Opening Ceremony of FEMUN 2017 was attended by high profile speakers: Deputy Vice President for International Relations of FEFU Mr. Evgeny E.

Savenkov, the Vice Consul of the People's Republic of China to Vladivostok– Mr. Mu Jihui, the Attaché of the Representation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia in Vladivostok Mr. Alexei V.

In frames of FEMUN 2017 participants attended the lecture delivered by Mr. Yotive on the topic

“Evolution of decision making process in United Nations”, lecture by Mr. Savenkov on the UN documents, and the seminar on the issues of security in Asia-Pacific by Dr. Semyon Korotich. Moreover, following the peculiarities of UN4MUN approach, delegates, had an opportunity to improve their understanding of UN4MUN procedure being involved in numerous trainings by MUNRFE Executive Director Ms. Elena A. Kiseleva and invited expert Mr. Yotive.

In accordance with UN4MUN procedure, delegates play a more substantive role in the Conference rather than they do in typical MUN simulations, so the Elections of the UN General Assembly Officials were conducted prior FEMUN 2017. According to the results, the following representatives were elected and further have successfully performed their duties of the GA Officials:

President of the General Assembly - Mr. Igor Voronin (Netherlands)

Chairperson for the General Assembly 2nd Committee - Mr. Alexander Grishin (Uruguay)

Chairperson for the General Assembly 6th Committee - Ms. Ekaterina Sadovskaia (USA)

The duties of the Security Council President were performed by Mr. Alexey Stanonis (Uruguay) in accordance with the rotation order of the UN Security Council members.

During the entire Conference the delegates were striving to achieve an ultimate goal, to reach consensus on the most crucial global issues. As a result, both GA committees simulated at the Conference adopted resolutions by acclamation, as well as the Security Council passed its resolution by a unanimous vote.

We are delighted to congratulate those delegates, who demonstrated outstanding results in the fields of documents writing and diplomacy:
