Famous circus performers brothers Askold and Edgard Zapashnye entered the team of the 2nd European Games Star Ambassadors. They were awarded a certificate to mark their appointments to the role in a ceremony held at the Belarusian Embassy in Moscow, Russia on 25 July 2018.
Askold Zapashnye said after receiving the certificate: “This acknowledgement is a great responsibility and, of course, a great honour. My brother and I are very fond of Belarus and glad to come back there on tour. We will do our best to fulfil the task of Star Ambassadors of the 2nd European Games, which is a paramount event for Belarus. People who were in Russia during the World Cup could realise how concepts such as “Sport Unites” and “Sport outside politics” really work”.
