A longtime friend of Kobzon declares that all the family of the artist from gayvoronskiy district, and to the Donbass, he is nothing has. This legend he invented to cater to Brezhnev Dnepropetrovsk.
Kobzon was always proud that he hails from the Donbass. According to the official version, Joseph was born in the city of chasiv Yar. At the end of 1939 his family moved to Lviv, where wow’s father was appointed head of the personnel Department of a candy factory. When the Second world war, the whole family Kobzon was evacuated to Uzbekistan in a small town near Tashkent.
Father Joseph Davidovich in the war he was wounded, he was sent home, but he left his family, found another woman and left to live in Moscow. In the end, in 1944, the family Kobzon returned to Ukraine to Kramatorsk, then she moved to Dnipropetrovsk, where he graduated from the mining College. It is from Dnepropetrovsk Joseph supposedly was drafted into the army.
However, this official theory destroys a longtime friend of Kobzon. On one of the forums a man by the name of Roman Kupchinsky told his story the biography of Joseph Davidovich. The man claims that the actor was not born in the Donbass and Central Ukraine, namely, in the Kirovohrad region, Gayvoronskiy district, in the village Khashchuvate.
Relatives of Joseph Davydovich lived in the nearby village of Grave, which has been repeatedly confirmed Kobzon. There was his uncle, where the little singer was sent to guests for the holidays, and where he filled his first tattoo.
Roman Kupchinsky says that Kobzon grew up in his native village Khashchuvate and went to serve in the army, like all the guys of that time. But after the army he left is supposedly family to him, because he showed talent as a singer and began to study in Moscow.
The man says that even after serving in the army Kobzon visited his native village and talked with old friends. Last visit was in the late 1970-ies. According to Roman Kupchinsky, once Kobzon even gave the plate with the autograph of his father, as their families were well acquainted.
Already in the 80s, according to “longtime friend” of Kobzon, he invented a myth about the homeland, the Donbass. He did it solely for the sake of his career and move up the political ladder in the future. Kobzon knowingly chose a home Donbass, because then Soviet leader was Brezhnev, who hails from Dnipropetrovsk, so Joseph was invented, saying that he studied in that city and lived there.
In addition, the Donbass was considered one of the “fat” regions of the USSR, so the “genetic” role in it was Kobzon necessary.
