– It was expected. It is very naive to count on positive solutions today. I don’t think we’ll be back in this basketball community for a long time: longer than even the pessimists think. So now we have to do everything so that our basketball does not fall, so that it develops. What should I do for this? For this we have a basketball federation.

Look at the level of interest in the VTB United League – good competition, high level. You should also look for international meetings. When possible. At the same time, in this situation, we must turn fully to our basketball and invest in ourselves: invest in our youth, in our technical staff, think better and organize our competitions.
