Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak spoke about his “ties” with Russia. He said that he supports the entrepreneurial environment “in the new Russia”, and also allocates money for education in schools.
“If I was asked what country is special for you, I would say – Russia. I sponsored the first video bridges between US and Russian rock musicians during the Cold War. Ordinary Americans talked to ordinary Russians, it's so easy. We were not enemies at all, despite all the propaganda of governments, leaders. Then I thought: Lord, we need to communicate more, ”said Mr. Wozniak at the Russian educational marathon“ New Knowledge ”(quoted by TASS).
During the event, the Apple co-founder invited one of the students to chat through his website. So he reacted to the student's offer to attend his conference. Steve Wozniak believes that young people have “the very intellectual freedom that is so important to us.”
