“today need the support of ordinary people. About a show to forget. I don’t understand why a private entrepreneur Averbukh seeks support from the state. I believe that this is complete nonsense. Now we need to help grandparents, volunteers who help the older generation. We need to help our doctors. Heard that they have added to 80 000. I think they need to add more.
once again I will say that I know everything inside, know what’s going on, how many people got in trouble and what are the doctors, the influx is huge. That’s who need support. And the show is now useless. We are in the same story got. I have the show closed. All were. It will be very difficult in the future, but what to do… so much to be sad, but I’m not one of those people. Have to think how to live and how to get out of this.
I have the following situation. I have a private school, and I also got. I rented a skating rink is a lot of money, millions of rubles every month. Plus there are coaches that I started and don’t know what to do. But do I have to run to the government and say, “give me money”?
it seems to Me that if you yourself decided to do business, and get out of the situation you need to. Well, let’s the government will to help there to some restaurant. I think that is complete nonsense. But this is my position. Can’t, you go to work in the public sector and be insured. And so… You’re an individual entrepreneur, all risks on you” – quoted Plushenko “Fontanka”.
Earlier, Ilya Averbukh has complained that the cancellation of cultural events because of the coronavirus have strongly influenced the financial situation of his projects. Referring to the semi-stagnation, he made it clear that he needed help from the state.
