Roman Dvoryankin: «I am thankful to our players — without them there would not have been any sports victories, records, magazine covers and appearances on prime TV channels. I feel great about our media team and their efforts in transforming all the achievements into our audience growth and commercial metrics improvement. Of course, I want to say thanks to our fans for all their support and fair bit of criticism that always helped us to improve and become even stronger after all.»
