Greeting by Valentin Efremov, polar traveller, pilot of the Saint Russia balloon

Thank you for doing me the honour of your participation in this project, dedicated to the International Polar year and the 70th anniversary of the Ivan Papanin Expedition. Being a polar traveller myself, I value the history of the North exploration by our predecessors. The glory of Russia was elevated due to their willpower and patriotic commitment to their homeland. Now, by MVK efforts their traditions are regenerated for the good of our country.
