Among the world leaders from year to year there are not only the teams of the post-Soviet space, but also the teams of European countries, the South American continent and Asia. Participants of previous years were the strongest world fighters.
Dmitry Troshkin, head coach of the Russian national team: «Two new countries have joined by: Tajikistan and Armenia, who did not play in the previous President's Cup. They also resist. Of course, our main competitors are Ukraine, Belarus. It’s those powers which have stable compounds. In the rest of the teams there are stars, but in certain weights.»
Evgeny Isaev, Russia: «I think there is no problem for us to take the Cup in the final. We should win the Kazakhs and then the winners of the second subgroup.»
Eugeny Gloriozov, five-time champion of the USSR in Sambo: «I think our competitors will be in the region of Central Asia: Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Georgia. It will not be soon, but may be it will happen.»
Moon Chong-Keum, Korea Sambo Federation President: «We hope, but we do not think we can beat the team of Belarus. For the most part, we focus on the fact that we are taking part in this tournament. It will be preparation for our athletes for the next competition.»
Fedor Emelyanenko, four-time world champion in combat sambo: «Everybody has a chance, of course. But I am glad that the President's Cup remains in Russia.

As a result, the Russians won the cup. Russian victory was expected, but it was not given the team easy. Even the preliminary fights were intense, as rivals Russian athletes go to the mat with a special attitude.
Kim Yeong Min, South Korea: «I chose Sambo, because it was the first sport that I started in the middle school. It is interesting to me. In Korea, it is widely known. We believe that in three years we can get a result. Despite the fact that now we are trying very hard, it doesn’t turn out very good.»
Magomed Abdulgamilov, Belorussia: «It is very difficult to fight in the finals with the Russians. Hopefully, we will win the next time. We will prepare even more.»
Vovik Hojayan, head coach of the Armenian team: «We have the impression we cannot win in 9 different weight classes, and at least 4 or five. It is this hope we were given. We already know that we can fight with Russia.»
Petru Oglinda, Moldova: «This is their sport, they are exactly sambo wrestlers. And we do judo and sambo».
The three leaders are also the Belarus and Ukraine. Further positions Kazakhstan, Armenia, South Korea, Moldova and Tajikistan occupied. The Cup has become a general test for top athletes in the world ahead of their performance at the World Championship in Minsk. Participants of the President’s Cup are the national teams, the leaders of the world ranking. However, organizers have an idea to modify the event, and to hold competitions among teams of power structures - the Interior Ministry, the Federal Security Service, the Emergencies Ministry and others. If it finds approval, next year the Presidents Cup will be held in a new format.
