An amazing person was invited – Anatoly Vasilyevich Saulyak – commander of the people’s squad for road safety, deputy. Chairman of the Council of Veterans, an adviser in the volunteer tank corps. He served in the group of Soviet forces in Germany in this corps and was a member of the council of the Pushkin Club.

Anatoly Vasilievich is a real example of masculinity, patriotism, conscience, and civic engagement. He told and showed by personal example what it means to be a “real defender.”

After watching the “Five qualities of a true man” movie, the participants, in an interactive format, discussed in teams why and how to be responsible and becoming a person developing a character with healthy habits.
