Dr. Bhatkar thanked Prof. Petrik and Mr. Nilesh Neel for the invitation. In his interaction with media he said:
According to me, the technologies certainly bring a lot of hope for the humanity. Not forgetting that Russia and India have long history of cooperation and collaborations. That Russia has been very supportive to India, as was also the case when I received support for my super computer, which initially was denied by USA. I feel India and Russia can have long tie-up and do great wonders. We are here for the applications of these technologies and not to debate on the creator of these.
I praise Mr. Nilesh Neel for his efforts in initiating to get the technologies to India. After, all the demonstrations, tests and studies I am delighted that this technology would revolutionize the water purification technology. In India, where the price of water is almost at par with price of milk, the HRCM technology will be a boon.
Not only HRCM but antistokes compounds hold a very important application where the problem of forgery, counterfeit currencies, medicines and false documentation has be put to an end.
Dr. Bhatkar also showed interest in the other technologies of O21CD which can play an important role in reclaiming India's power in 21st century

Dr. Vijay Bhatkar
As the world advances to the next century it opens new avenues to science, but also poses newer challenges. Technologies of Prof. Petrik are 21st century discoveries, and will gain credence, as they seem promising in unraveling these underlying challenges of the world. Societal concerns of the world can be collectively solved with some these discoveries. Technologies are ever advancing and the present discoveries by Prof. Petrik are such example of notable advancements of the 21st century, it promises colossal commercial implementation and implications.
After visiting the laboratories of Prof. Petrik and after going through the licenses held by him, I am of the opinion that HRCM based water purification has been verified deeply to keep any discrepancies at bay. HRCM technology has exceptional application in water purification.
The antistokes compound would prove extremely useful to check money laundering, violations related to regulatory and compliance authorities, forgery and hence will make screening accurate and comprehensive. The antistoke compounds developed by Prof. Petrik can eliminate the typographical errors and minute inconsistency, which go a miss when verifications are carried out. Hence, will keep counterfeit notes at bay.
India can benefit from these technologies. It is also important that it solves the problem of the world, namely terrorism, clean water and counterfeit currencies. Having gone through the demonstrations and presentations elaborately, I propose India and Russia can collate together and also work together in many other areas of science too.
Mr. Nilesh Neel
Mr. Nilesh Neel who is the Founder President & Director of WFR & O21CD says world has found a genius scientist especially on HRCM nanotechnology, proving solution for water problem. Prof. Petrik is a versatile personality and has created unusual inventions, discoveries and achievements. He has wished Prof. Petrik the very best in his future of science.
Dr. Shivram Bhoje
Nanoscience and technology has shown lot of progress in this century. The application of nanotechnology for water purification is an important discovery, all over the world. Other applications of nanotechnology like antistokes, platinum group of metals and similar applications have benefits of their own. After visiting the labs of Prof. Petrik, Dr. Bhoje was impressed with the demonstrations. He says Prof. Petrik is man of many facets with many more ideas and strongly feels these technologies must be implemented in the world especially India. He thanked Prof. Petrik and Mr. Nilesh Neel.
Dr. S. H. Pawar
He was glad to have visited Russia on this invitation. He spoke that Mr. Nilesh Nilesh Neel has made coordination between Indian and Russian scientists that the technologies and science can be useful to India, making improvements for Indian scientists. Prof. V. I. Petrik's invention in field of water purification by graphenes is a boon, as it is economical and can to reach common man. The experiments, done so far have an advantage for humanity. He was glad that eminent professors would be supportive of WFR, as water is the need of the world.
Dr. Satish Wate
He was contacted by Prof. Vijay Bhatkar regarding the visit to Russia, to see demonstrations of the innovative technologies. This visit was based on collaboration of Prof. V. I. Petrik and Mr. Nilesh Neel. Since his area of work also lies in water purification, he was hence very interested. He was looking at an opportunity where there can be a link of India and Russia on scientific level either through governmental partnerships or private partnerships. The visit was quite useful, the visits to labs and demonstrations were informative especially the graphenes, he feel that India can have a very good R&D platform.
