"I agreed to participate in the Supervisory Board of Apake Foundation because I consider this to be an excellent opportunity to help those in need in various fields. As a person from the sports field I know that our country has many excellent, promising children who can lift the country to another level.
I visit different parts of the world and each time I am more and more convinced that we live in such a wonderful country. We have great nature, people and food. The Kyrgyz people are very open and good-natured without inner prudence and hoarding. My dream is rich and prosperous Kyrgyzstan.
Today people are capable of lying, but being insincere is economically unprofitable. Better to be yourself.
Foundations such as Apake are very important because thanks to them important problems are solved. Practice makes it perfect, after all.
One of my favorite quotes is "per aspera ad astra" or "through difficulties to the stars."
