Sergey Bubka presented to the museum the unique Olympic literature that the NOC of Ukraine issues in cooperation with the Olympic Academy of Ukraine. The NOC of Ukraine President also presented historical stamps and interesting and useful editions on the results of the celebration in Poltava (the city of Ukraine) the 180th anniversary of the birth of Oleksiy Butovsky, a prominent Ukrainian, and the founder of the modern Olympic Movement. ‘For many years, the National Olympic Committee and the Olympic Academy of Ukraine, led by its president, Maria Bulatova, are actively working on the dissemination of Olympic values and the publication of unique Olympic literature - from children's educational diaries to multi-volume encyclopedias. It is very pleasant to know that this mission is being implemented not only in Ukraine, but also covers the whole world, as our editions are translated into other languages. We believe that, thanks to them, young people and society will take an example from famous athletes, will follow Olympic values and remember history’, - said Sergey Bubka.
