Presently, the traveller is looking for a team that could carry out his plans, and sponsors. Many specialists have already responded to the call, Ruslan believes that with their help it will be possible to implement his plan.

Verin was the first of the Ukrainians to get from Odessa to Singapore by bicycle, having covered almost 15 thousand kilometers. He travelled across America on his steel horse in two years: first he travelled from Alaska to Mexico City, and the next year he reached the West of Argentina through Peru. But it was not possible to conquer all of South America, because his plans were thwarted by the Coronavirus.
