“Our budget exceeds the budget of traditional series. Special thanks to the Republic of Tatarstan, for which this project is a special, national bestseller. Substantial financial assistance was provided to them on their part, and for this we thank them in particular. Without their partnership, it would be unrealistic to make such a large-scale project, ”he emphasized.
