Fairy-tale author, RUSADA Deputy Director General on international cooperation and anti-doping issues Margarita Pakhnotskaya took part in the presentation. She read to the schoolchildren the fascinating story about the adventures of two friends, Don and Nick, at inter-galactic competition. “This is a fairy-tale about friendship, will to win and respect for a rival”, said the author. “We hope this story will inspire children for new victories and help them choose their own paths”.
The book was published in 2018 jointly with Publishing House “Rech”, and the colorful pictures for the fairy-tale were created by young children’s artist Anastasia Lobova.
The fairy-tale has already been translated into English, German and French.
