Друзья! Вот уже более полутора лет Виктор Бахтин борется с тяжелой болезнью.Он перенес несколько операций. Еще вчера казалось, недуг отступил, но коварная болезнь вернулась вновь.  Страховые выплаты за лечение уже превысили свои лимиты. Мы организовали сбор средств, чтобы помочь ему и его жене Майе в это трудное время. Пожалуйста, помогите, если можете.
Виктор Бахтин проиллюстрировал более семидесяти книг, самых разных: Жозефа Рони-старшего, сказки Г.Х. Андерсона, К.Д. Ушинского, басни Крылова, шесть томов Александра Волкова "Волшебник изумрудного города", произведения Виктора Астафьева, Валентина Распутина, Василия Шукшина и многих-многих других. Автор соболька Кеши - символа Спартакиады народов Сибири в 1982-м. частник международных выставок, отмечен высшими наградами, признан одним из лучших художников- анималистов. Его картины украшают шведский королевский дворец, императорский дворец в Японии, галереи Америки и Европы, хранятся в частных коллекциях. Сейчас Виктор и Майя живут в Висконсине.  Сегодня Виктор нуждается в нашей помощи.

Dear Friends! Victor Bakhtin is fighting a severe disease for more than a year and a half. He underwent several operations. Just yesterday it seemed that the he won the battle but unfortunately, the disease has returned. We have organized a fundraiser to help Victor and his wife Maya at this difficult time. Please help if you can and spread the word.

Victor Bakhtin illustrated more than 79 books and gained a reputation as one of the leading book designers in Siberia.
Illustrating the Red Data Book of Central Siberia, Victor took part in numerous scientific expeditions where he was involved in the creation of films about cranes. Now there are many of his paintings in Sweden, Holland, Spain, England, South Africa, Japan, Taiwan, and the U.S.A. Since 1994, Victor and his wife have lived in Wisconsin. As of today Victor is needed our help.

John and I are very sorry to hear of Victor's passing. We enjoyed knowing Victor as a good man as well as an excellent artist. We are sad that he endured such pain in his final days. We will always remember him and enjoy the paintings of his that we are fortunate to own. Sincerely John and Ruth Nugent
