The charity foundation of a name of the St.Luka (Voyno-Yasenetsky) is responsible for financing of the project. According to his founder Mikhail Argamakov: ""It is not so much sports project, as a scientific project in which are involved Roskosmos, Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation and other structures. Also there will be a picture of the icon of St. Luka Krymsky on the balloon, which is symbolically: the orthodox archbishop will raise Russia on record height and from the altitude of 25 kilometers will see the whole Russian Federation and consecrate all our country from this height".

Exactly the same image was apply to a reduced copy of the design, delivered to Sevastopol and consecrated in Vladimirsky Cathedral in Chersonese. The balloon, which will make flight, will be delivered directly to the platform in Kislovodsk.
