"Dear Mr Nazaraliev,
I got familiar with the new social project of the World League “Mind Free of Drugs” - transnational internet competition "Maya.", with great interest
I appreciate and support your personal efforts to combat drug trafficking and drug abuse. I think what you are doing is extremely important and necessary work to free our society of drug captivity - for its physical and spiritual healing.
As Chairman of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation and the leader of the party "Fair Russia", I often travel in major cities of our country, and in the villages lost in the woods with a few yards. And wherever I go, I see the Russian citizens, especially young people, who fall into terrible addiction for various reasons. I am sure that the transnational internet competition "Maya" will be a turning point in the confrontation of addiction. When we all - politicians, artists, doctors, construction workers, and military representatives, of all professions, nationalities and religions - say "NO!" to narcotic intoxication. When the entire continent unites to give a strong rebuff to the addiction hydra, so that the future of our children and grandchildren will not become only withdrawal, and the happiness of the people will not be measured in grams of heroin or cocaine.
I wish you well, success, peace and happiness."
