In spite of the fact that the economic crisis concerned not only Ukraine, but also many countries, it doesn't prevent them to use opportunity to buy or entice to itself the good athlete. So it happened and to our athletes - canoeists - Maxim Prokopenko and Sergey Bezugly who will support now a national team of Azerbaijan.
Like anything also didn't foretell transition of these athletes to other national team, but nevertheless it occurred.
