Ivan Chaika: “I Believe People Should Be Treated Without Regard to Their Status”

Ivan Chaika: “I Believe People Should Be Treated Without  Regard to Their Status”

Krasnodar, 18 April – Yug Times. Our today’s interviewee – Ivan Chaika, Head of the regional branch of the Russian Geographical Society, member of the Kuban Civic Chamber, recounts the history of the local Geographical Society, how its members manage to cooperate with the authorities, and why he does not want to leave Krasnodar region.

Q.: You have lots of public and professional duties. Can you give yourself heart and soul to all of them?

A. Of course, it can’t be otherwise. Whatever I do, I try to do my best – otherwise I would steer clear of this activity. You must enjoy doing what you do – then you will find time and opportunities to do it well. Otherwise you must turn it down.

Q.: What are the main rules of your life?

A.: There are two of them. The first states that whatever you do, do it professionally and competently. The second says: treat humans in a human way, without regard to their social or property status. How you treat others, is how they will treat you in return.

Q. In the past, the regional branch of the Russian Geographical Society used to be an academic commonwealth under the aegis of higher school. Since you came, it has turned into a public institution. How did that begin?

A.: It began from the Apsheronsk rayon branch founded in 2002 from scratch. It was then that I managed to awake interest of local geography teachers, ethnographers, historians and tourists in the activity of the Russian Geographical Society.
