Dynamo President Igor Surkis told how he sees the end of the conflict in the telepool issue.
– How will it all end?
– It will end with our country winning, and we will have peace, I hope, in the near future. Everything will change in this life. Football will change. The sooner this happens, the better.
And as for the fact that you are hinting at some kind of sanctions, I think that everything will end with some kind of peace treaty, if people have reason. Everyone will go their own way. And when this terrible war is over, we will sit down at the table. Perhaps even the first persons of the clubs will sit down and we will come to something as wise people who have achieved something in this life.
I want to give an example of why I hated the Komsomol. Maybe it is asymmetric with respect to the telepool, nevertheless, I will bring it. They approached me at the end of each month and said that I had to hand over 2 kopecks. It irritated me terribly. And my dad, who lived to be 101, wanted me to call him every day when I was away for a long time. I needed these 2 kopecks, but for some reason I had to give them to the Komsomol.
Then, in a chemistry lesson, I blew something up by mixing some kind of flask wrong, and I was expelled from the Komsomol. I was the happiest because I didn’t have to pay those 2-kopeck fees. But it was not a matter of two kopecks. My parents gave me money. The point was that these “komsyuki” got me the way they get our country today, – summed up Surkis.
