Putinist Volochkova has an uncle in Ukraine: he lives without electricity and water in a frontline village
Pro-Putin ballerina Anastasia Volochkova has close relatives in Ukraine. As it turned out, the famous Russian ballerina's own uncle lives with his wife in one of the frontline villages of Zaporizhzhia region.
Anatoliy Volochkov, according to him, does not communicate with his brother, who lives in St. Petersburg, or with his niece, a famous Russian ballerina. The man told this to Suspilne journalists.
Volochkova's 67-year-old relative lives in a Ukrainian village near the frontline. Together with his wife Antonina, the man lives in an old private house, where he moved many years ago from an apartment in Zaporizhzhia. They had to rent out the city housing because their pension money was not enough to live on.
The Volochkovs' village is constantly shelled, and the residents are used to the constant cannonade. During air raids, the couple hides in an old barn. They live on what they grow in their own garden and have to go to a neighboring village to get water: "The windows were shattered by the explosions. We have been living without electricity since last year, it is very difficult. There is no stove, because we used to use an electric stove. It's good that we have a receiver."
According to Anatoliy, the last time he saw his niece was in 2004, during her concert. Volochkov says that he was unable to approach his relative because "there were guards and he had his own car." His uncle used to see Volochkova more often because he "worked for five years in St. Petersburg as an auto electrician: "I had the opportunity to see her."
According to her social media posts, Volochkova was last in Zaporizhzhia in 2012. The cheerful patriot then said that all her relatives on her father's side were from there. She listed her grandparents and father, but did not mention her uncle. The uncle, according to his stories, also prefers not to mention his niece, who supported the Kremlin's aggressive policy toward Ukraine.
In an interview, the ballerina said: "I love Russia very much, I trust and respect our president. Our people are strong in spirit. Other countries have never liked Russia because we have a powerful state. And when times are tough, we have to stand up and endure. So there are some sanctions. So what? We have to support the government and our soldiers."
