High achievements of our citizens in international competitions, presence of world-class sport complexes and active support for healthy lifestyle confirm it. Today we have the opportunity to meet and hold the “Flame of Peace” relay in our company, it’s a great honor.

It’s just a bit more than one day before the start of the Games’ Opening Ceremony. We wish all athletes a successful start, good performances, and a record number of medals”.
