In fact, any fan from Moscow or New York who thinks or speaks in Russian, can become a member of our Chapter. Today, the global world has shrunk in size so that it does not matter where you live or work. The main thing is, what is your mental civilizational choice. We therefore welcome all new members from Kiev and Chisinau, Minsk and Moscow, Tokyo or Paris ", - said B. FILATOV.
