President of FIAS Vasily Shestakov, in his headed article, commented on the conference: "The Olympic heights which the FIAS must reach demand a full-fledged and serious work. This also includes the work in the educational research area, which this conference is dedicated to. I am sure that today's reports shall bring those ideas to SAMBO, which will help us develop SAMBO and reach the Olympic height which we strive for. As you know, every work is headed by real leaders, such people who open up new vistas for us. Evgeniy Mikhaylovich, the man whom this conference is dedicated to, is the perfect example. I am convinced that all the people who gathered here today are also ready to look beyond the horizon of the conventional and the obsolete. Those ideas which they will bring in their works will give SAMBO new strength to walk the planet".
