Hey Dmitry,

You need to leave a space between def and __init__. It is helpful to always pay attention to the color of the keywords. Often you can figure out what's wrong with your code just by noticing that the color is off. In the Python code challenges, keywords like def and class will always be red, same with functions and conditional words like if, else, print, etc.

Hope this helps.
