Today, September 2, in Moscow, there is a civilian funeral for Joseph Kobzon. Politicians, cultural figures and show business from Russia come together.
The row at the Moscow concert hall, named after Tchaikovsky, of those who wanted to bid farewell to Joseph Kobzon began to gather in the dark. The organizers of the funeral had the premonition that the singer's grateful listeners would not only be many, but very many, so they extended them by two hours and started at 8.00, not at 10.00, as planned.
President of Russia Vladimir Putin came to say goodbye to Joseph Kobzon. "The head of state was in tears," – noted the Russian media.
