Honored Artist of Russia Alexander Demidov awarded the laureates of the 1st People's Prize for Amateur Artists in Ryazan

All events related to this initiative, the exhibition, the award ceremony, were held with the support of the Ryazan administration, the Ministry of Culture, the business community and caring residents. Alexander Rzhanov, Chairman of the Ryazan Regional Branch of the Rodina Party, supported the initiative of the Prize with his participation and contribution:

- A few weeks ago we planted linden trees in the future artists' park near the Ryazan-2 station, and today for the first time amateur artists have received the “Brushes in a holster” national award named after Sergei Demidov. In modern Russia, there is a lack of the patronage that was under Tretyakov, Mamontov and Morozov. I believe that it is important for every artist to gain recognition, to understand their relevance. I liked the phrase of the chairman of the Ryazan branch of the Union of Artists of Russia Viktor Leonidovich Grusho-Navitsky that da Vinci was an amateur. Perhaps the new da Vinci or Dali lives in Ryazan?

After the awards ceremony, Alexander Demidov announced another important campaign, the face of which he promised to become.

Due to a misunderstanding, the Ryazan region was not included in the environmental state federal program to save the Volga. Whereas the Oka is one of its most important tributaries. And the most important pollutant. To save the Oka today we need our own federal program. Alexander Demidov suggested that this issue be brought up for general discussion: to make it public, by the efforts of all interested public associations, academia, government officials, to get involved in the preparation of comprehensive measures to save the Oka. Together with his fellow musicians of the most famous Russian bands, Demidov is ready to hold a festival in support of this initiative in September.

- I will definitely join this work, prepare my proposals, - said Alexander Demidov. - One of the factors of pollution of the Oka has become obsolete or completely absent treatment facilities in cities and towns. Sewerage systems, especially in small towns, are in a deplorable state. We have a lot to work on. And, I hope, the authorities will hear the voice of public figures and support this initiative. If you do not start this work now, the hour is not far off when the water of the Oka is recognized as unfit for drinking. And drinking water in Ryazan can become as valuable a resource as in Crimea.
