The competition organizers state:
This summer has happened to be scorching, and, I am sure, not only analysts of the Meteorologist Office can confirm it. Yet, the hotel complex ‘Russkaya Okhota’ (Russian Hunt), which is situated in an incredibly picturesque and hospitable location near the city of Samara, hosted an event for federal experts of the All-Russian Public Organization of Disabled People with MS (All-Russian MS Society) who felt hot for reasons far from those caused by weather extremes.
