But in his 80s he could still live, walk along the embankments of the Neva, go to the Philharmonic. He could still serve the country. And, perhaps, if he had not died, something in her story could have gone a little differently, written by Ksenia Sobchak.
She added that, unfortunately, people often suffer from the irrecoverable, not appreciating it so much during life. And the celebrity doesn't know why this is happening.
I do not know the answer, but I try to listen carefully to the voices of those who are alive, who are near and who need my love. I'm really trying. And that daddy's portrait reminds me every day of the main flaw in human nature - the inability to appreciate what is truly valuable in the present, added by Ksenia Sobchak.
Users in the comments supported the TV presenter, and many noticed that Anatoly Sobchak would be proud of her life and success.
Also yesterday in St. Petersburg a commemorative ceremony was held in honor of the former mayor. In particular, a photo exhibition was organized, where you can see little Ksenia. The TV presenter shared frames from the photo exhibition in the Instagram Stories section.
Recall that TV presenter Ksenia Sobchak was born in 1981 to the family of lawyer Anatoly Sobchak and historian Lyudmila Narusova. Anatoly Sobchak died on the night of February 19-20, 2000 at the Rus Hotel in Svetlogorsk, as a result of acute heart failure. He headed St. Petersburg from 1991 to 1996.
Unfortunately, the politician did not have time to see his grandson. So, on November 18, 2016, Ksenia gave birth to her first child. The star and her husband, actor Maxim Vitorgan, became the parents of the boy. The couple officially registered their relationship back in 2013. Xenia's pregnancy became officially known in the fall. By the way, it was not the first time that Maxim Vitorgan himself became a father. From his first marriage, the actor has a daughter, Pauline, and a son, Daniel.
