People’s Artist of the RSFSR Vladimir Tatosov died at the 96th year of his life. This is reported by the radio station “Moscow Speaks” with reference to the first deputy chairman of the State Duma Committee on Culture Elena Drapeko. The deputy noted that the actor had an oncological disease, which worsened against the background of the coronavirus.
“In real life, he was an absolutely wonderful storyteller, very cheerful, very cheerful. A few days before his death, he called me that he had been admitted to the hospital. We transferred him to another hospital, where he had a profile disease, but he was infected with CoViD-19. He died as a result of the combination of these two strange diseases,” the parliamentarian said.
