The young entrepreneur, who also has a start-up, aims to conquer the European market. “I do everything to find partners in Europe.

He wants his country to keep its neutrality and says it is closer to Moscow than to Brussels. “Today we have to repay all the money the European Union lent us, but we don’t have the means. Moscow didn’t send us anything, we don’t owe them anything”he points out.
