Yevhen «HarisPilton» Zolotarov, Natus Vincere CEO:
«We wouldn’t make changes in our roster on the eve of a key bootcamp and important qualifiers if it weren’t for SoNNeikO. We are perfectly aware of Akbar’s potential and we just couldn’t lose the opportunity to work with him again. I want to thank Roman for the work he’s done. You are a great player and awesome person. I know you’ll do great. Continue growing as a pro and believe in yourself. I also express my gratitude to Vega Squadron organization and Alexey Kondakov personally for the quick transfer negotiations. Cooperating with you was very pleasant. There are few organizations that think of the players’ interest in such questions. Respect! I am grateful to all our fans for being with us in good and bad periods. You are the greatest asset of Na`Vi, so let’s push together!»
