In his opinion, it is no need to be afraid of attracting young people to participation in political life of the region and the country and considering their opinion. «Today we all depend on external factors. Often we do not understand from what side we can receive an impact. The society should be ready to become citizens of their own country.

A new initiative will give the opportunity for big number of youth people to show themselves, will allow them growing as personalities and professionals», as he explains.
