KRESCHATYK, 15

The lifetime interior of the singer’s apartment and his personal belongings have been completely saved. Also saved, systematized, organized and constantly updated are the rich archives of unique materials, his audio and video records. In total, more than 100,000 archival units. The apartment is in a catastrophic state – it badly needs urgent capital repairs and restoration work.

In 2008, a jury member of the Hmyria International competition of vocalists, the famous Russian bass A.Vedernikov visited the home of the singer, was shocked by its disastrous condition and stated: “The flat of Hmyria is the shame of Ukraine.”
