Olga Abrosimova, the director of the center of development of family forms of upbringing and a regional vice – coordinator of All Russian party project “Each child is important for Russia”, shares her impressions:“These kids are real heroes and it is obvious. They are ready to ride their bikes through the entire world to prove that there are no unneeded kids. Their attempts to destroy the myths about “bad” genetics using their own example as well as to motivate people to adopt are worth respect indeed”. According to Olga Abrosimova only such bright and exciting events can really change the attitude of the society to taking kids into families. “Long-term expertise of the work of our Center of development of family forms of upbringing in Krasnoyarsk area shows that only active propaganda of adoption and large scale events, projects and public actions like this one are able to change the tough situation with social orphans in the area and in Russia in the whole. We need more of such actions”, – the head of the Center assures.The young bikers ahead with the father of 32 adopted kids Gennadiy Mokhnenko have already rode 5000 miles this time. They had ridden through all of Ukraine and half of Russia. They had been ridden through Moscow – Kursk, Oryol, Ufa, Yekaterinburg, Tyumen, Omsk, Novosibirsk and now – Krasnoyarsk. In th e20th of July the group kept riding towards Irkutsk area, closer to the great lake – the Baikal.According to the participants of the bike action this trip is not just a journey for them to see new places. This is a real bike action since every day they have to ride about 75 miles in extreme conditions, they have to be present at all meetings and press- conferences and concerts devoted to the action. All these is to attract attention of as many people as possible to the problem of orphans. The bikers appreciated the warm hospitality of people in Krasnoyarsk they experienced and they expressed their assurance that the dream about Russia without orphans will come true soon.“ It is worth mentioning that at the present stage of the bike action it was the first time we rode along the roads where the traffic stopped for the sake of the action, it felt very unusual, – the partakers of the action share. We would like also to emphasize on the good attitude to the action of the governor of Krasnoyarsk area and the party “United Russia”. It went on a high level, big thanks. After such bright meetings and much attention of the society the dream about Russia without orphans has becoming more and more real”.
