I can assure all the sportsmen that their coming to Chechnya will become a great holiday for the whole inhabitants of the republic, and they will have an opportunity to get personal evidence about Caucasian hospitability. Many people in the world consider Caucasus to be a hot point but it’s not true. Moreover, relating to sport.
