I appreciate the significant contribution of Viktor Yanukovych Jr. in the development of motor sport in Ukraine. He was a real steering of the National Motor Sport Federation. We cherish the memory of him. I express my deepest condolences to his wife, Olha, his son, parents, relatives, and friends. It is an irreparable loss for many. Rest in peace."
