Actor and producer
"Despite the fact that I’m from the Urals, I'm rooting for the whole of Russia, because it is our common Winter Universiade! I have three children, and it is important for me, what they are like when they grow up. For my part, I try to educate them, share experience using humor and creativity. Sports is another, no less important aspect for the development of a harmonious personality: it helps developing fighting spirit, respect for the opponent, the ability to adequately take both victory and defeat, in a word, the skills that are so essential for our youth. After all, in their life they’ll have to go through many contests and to overcome many difficulties".
