This year has been unusually full of dramatic events, it is simply unique for its turbulence, COVID 19, a referendum on constitutional changes, political cataclysms in Belarus and Kyrgyzstan, the Nagorno-Karabakh war. Our site is not a platform for any political battles. There is no point in arguing about it because even in my own family, ‘pluralism of opinions’ dominates according to Mikhail Gorbachev’s terminology.
My mother-in-law is a devoted Putinist, ‘If only nothing gets worse; there is a good tsar and bad boyars’. My wife always has her own opinion, which is often directly contrary to mine, in accordance with the law on the unity and struggle of opposites. My youngest son doesn’t care about anything, he lives in a parallel world of computer graphics. My elder has already been to the pie wagon and temporary detention facility, received an administrative penalty in the form of a fine for being at the wrong place and at the wrong time, he was snatched from a crowd of onlookers during an unauthorised rally. I am too old for going to Bolotnaya Square, no matter how ashamed I am, despite having a clear life stance, I have neither the courage nor the desire to express it. I have not watched news channels for several years, nor I have read any newspapers; so, I feel quite healthy. ‘We have been successfully simulating mental health all our lives’, I forgot who said that. COVID has introduced a lot of movement into the morass of our routine, at first everyone botched the whole thing, everyone locked down and hid in their homes; now, during the so-called second wave, skipped out on the most elementary sanitary standards. There are more and more sickness cases around the world, the number of deaths is also growing day by day; and no one wears any masks, or they hang around the neck, at best on the lower lip. We shake hands, hug, and even kiss three times in a Christian way when we meet, and count on a bit of luck.
Thank goodness the pandemic hasn’t really affected our business. Vehicles keep moving, container ships keep sailing and customs keep working. Factories need raw materials, merchants need goods, people eat, go to the toilet, brush their teeth, which means that you cannot do without logistics. We will not be left without bread; someone has to carry both cartridges and the dead in refrigerators (P.S. I apologize for my outrageous cynicism). Based on the Q3 results, this year looks good, we are confidently getting out of the hole where the year 2014 drove us. All rating sites confidently assign us the status of a company with high reliability what we are proud of. In November 2020, we will celebrate our tenth anniversary, if the pandemic permits, may tarnation take it, and unless something extraordinary happens in our country’s political life.
Dear current and potential customers, please congratulate us on our anniversary with new requests! Believe us, we are very responsible and reliable guys! We especially appeal to the not killed small and medium-sized enterprises, Down with globalism! Let us not let each other die!
