Viktor is proud to have his work being so highly estimated and I am happy that my captions have been preserved almost in its original form, with only minor editing.
Thank you, Sarah Stocke, for good questions and thoughtful work!

Big story in National Geographic Georgia Magazine by me, Bogdana Vashchenko, illustrated with photographs by Viktor Lyagushkin, about Vashlovani National Reserve, our of the oldest National Reserves in Georgia. It’s an honour for us to be published in the festive issue of the Magazine, dedicated to its 5-th Anniversary.
Working on the story I was so impressed how it had been possible for all sides to Mind-Meld: the government, non-state organization NACRES, and shepherds.
Here in Vashlovani it is easy to see how strongly tied humans and nature.

On April 29, Vitya Lyagushkin and I had the honor to attend the presentation of the May (2017) issue of National Geographic (Georgia) Magazine, as well as the premiere screening of the film The Genius about Albert Einstein, to which the issue of the magazine is also dedicated. To our regret, we understood little from the movie, since it was in Georgian, but appreciated the excellent work of the magazine team and the high level of organization of the event.
The presentation had been held in the inner courtyard of the National Museum of Georgia. The wine was magnificent, the buffet was wonderful, the atmosphere was friendly.
Dear new National Geographic (Georgia) Editor-in-Chief Natia Khuluzauri, thank you for inviting us, it was a big pleasure to be there!
