Mr Bubka conveyed greetings for his colleagues from Belarus on behalf of Ukraine's Olympic family and gave out the present to Belarus NOC President Aleksandr Lukashenko, saying, 'I am happy the relations and cooperation between two NOCs, athletes and sport administrators are so close and effective. Ukraine has always been open to communicate and share our knowledge and experience – and will always be so. I believe Ukraine and Belarus will continue to promote and move forward with Olympic ideas and work together for the good of sports and active lifestyle'.
