'I don't feel myself rather superior to ours or something', says Ivan, 'I'm just doing what I can to help people with environmental problems of ours. Wastonomic theory is very important, but it is not the only things I've created in field of waste disposal activities. In fact, this is just one face of my nature'.

We worked hard to raise him; we think we raised a very special child with very special abilities and great enthusiasm in creating of wonderful works'.
