A very friendly, full of good energy atmosphere prevails in the crowded hall of the ceremony when the honorary awards of the program «Person of the Year» are handed over to foreign personalities. It was like this in 2001 when we honored the first winners of a special international award – Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of Russia to Ukraine Viktor Chernomyrdin.

The program «Person of the Year» proves every time another important truth: there are neither borders, nor time or any political conflicts for true art and its true fans. The furious surge of emotion and sincere feelings, with which the participants of the ceremonies awarded the winners of special international awards is another proof to this.
