“Implementation of the internet competition "Maya" is an important initiative of the World League "Mind Free of Drugs". Yamal people fully support the idea of the contest organizers to show the illusory drug world, to look at the ugly picture of addiction through the eyes of people who use drugs and those who are close to them. Addiction, unfortunately, covers a young and promising segment of the population. Young people entering the path of this dubious pleasure do not realize that not only will they ruin their future, but the future of a whole generation. Therefore, it is important to talk about, to show children and adults, also by means of the internet competition, just how dangerous addiction is, and how much trouble it brings to the families, loved ones and the economies of entire countries. I am sure that together we have the power to resist this global disaster.
I wish the organizers of the competition many more new ideas and successes in their noble work. And good luck to the participants. May you always have enough opportunities for new beginnings, determination and strength to overcome obstacles, leading to small and big victories!"
