«With Japan I have a special relationship. I first visited here 15 years ago, when we participated in the Russian-Japanese rock festival in Hokkaido, and since then can not calm down and continue to build bridges with Japanese musicians. The festival V-Rox, which is already five years we have been in Vladivostok, Russian musicians come and musicians from Japan: EGO-Wrappin, Love Phycodelico, perhaps next year the festival will be attended by the group X-JAPAN,» — said the musician, who called himself «an enthusiast of folk musical diplomacy.»

Lagutenko believes that the project arose at the initiative of the participants, was largely made due to the «echoes of the summit» between Japan and Russia.

«These initiatives are coming not from the offices of government buildings, and from the project participants, such enthusiasts like me. We managed to find opportunities for dialogue between the Russian organizations involved in promoting the traditional cultural values, and honey Japanese partners. I think that, of course, this is not the last echoes of the summits, but these meetings at the highest level enable such musicians as I, artists and composers to be more open in relation to each other. I believe that the more common guys and girls will communicate with their peers in Japan, the easier it is on the highest level and subsequently to negotiate and make decisions», — said the leader of the group «Mumiy Troll».
