MOSCOW, Nov. 25 (UPI) -- The Russian government said it is setting aside $8 million for a Web site geared toward young people, but it will only handle 300 users at a time.

The government said it is accepting submissions from prospective designers for a Web site that would promote Russian culture and traditions among young people, RIA Novosti reported Friday.

Novosti said good-quality Web sites generally cost $100,000-$300,000 in Russia, and the price tag of the new site may be reduced depending on its design.

The Culture Ministry said the site will be required to have information on the 25 development stages of Russian history with "colorful illustrations and photographs."
