"It's hard for him": Mykola Hnatiuk's relative revealed the country in which the legendary artist lives now
Mykola Hnatiuk, a singer who used to sell out stadiums in his heyday, now lives in Germany. The singer moved in with his son, who has been living abroad for a long time.
A relative of the famous singer, People's Artist of Ukraine Anatolii Hnatiuk, told OBOZ.UA. Anatolii and Mykola Hnatiuk are brothers.
Actor Anatolii Hnatiuk says he last saw his older brother shortly before the full-scale war, "He now lives in Germany, he went to visit his son. We have good, brotherly relations. He is 12 years older, and I always listen to him. Especially since he is a very wise man: he has always been like that."
"I'll say this: like all Ukrainians, wherever they are, life is hard for him mentally because he thinks only about the war. But physically everything is okay, thank God. He is very worried about everything that is happening here. We talk often: we call each other several times a week. We also write to each other, so we are constantly in touch," Anatoli Hnatyuk added.
Earlier, OBOZ.UA wrote that Mykola Hnatiuk was officially married once. He met his future wife, journalist Natalia, during an interview. Cosmonaut Heorhii Hrechko volunteered to be the musician's matchmaker at the engagement. Hnatiuk had met him on the set the day before, and he invited the artist, whose work he really liked, to a restaurant. Coincidentally, it was there that the singer was going to propose to Natalia. Hrechko confessed to this, and the latter, taking a box of apples, offered to join the groom's company.
The marriage with Natalia gave birth to the singer's only son, Oleksandr. When the boy was young, his parents decided to move to Germany for a while. Later, Mykola returned, and the family stayed abroad. Hnatiuk divorced his wife. His son grew up and studied economics at the University of Munich.
