We were offered to make this song with Eugene Koshev. we had such a conversation because I myself felt that this was an indecent test against Valery Alekseevna. But they told us: "Well, you see, we are here and Kolomoisky banter, and the president, and deputies, and our deputies. We have been doing this all for 20 years, laughing (at officials, - ed.), And there is nothing of the kind here. They are discussing this topic. "Of course, it was unpleasant for me.
