She also stressed that the event was a lot of positive feedback.
“The main problem is the lack of feedback. This is our mistake and fault. If everyone was warned that the award is transferred, then this would be a scandal arose. Now trying to settle the conflict… In my opinion, parents should not have to cheat children.

But this chaos did not allow us to do it”, — said the head of the Art Fund-Premium.
