Zemfira will act with Queen.

After a joint performance of Zemfira and Queen at the Russian Music Awards ceremony in the Kremlin and during the afterparty for the musical "We Will Rock You", the English musicians sent the Russian singer an invitation to continue the creative collaboration. The essence of the offer is extremely simple: to continue in the same role, but to a much greater audience. As a concert venue, Queen have suggested the Red Square - it was probably recommended by McCartney as a very good place for
a rock concert. Also, there is even a chance that president Putin will come to listen the concert. Zemfira immediately agreed to Queen`s offer. Now Roger Taylor`s and Bryan May's representatives carry on with negotiations for the formal aspects of the future super-concert. Russia didn`t see Freddie Mercury, but it does not mean that we cannot hear Queen. Perhaps, Zemfira is the correct choice to give us the sensation of real Queen`s magic in Moscow.

The monument is located near the local Water and Sewerage Customer Service office (“Vodokanal”). The sculpture of “Uncle Yasha” has a real prototype – it is Yakov Zubkov who joined the service in 1945 and had worked there for about 30 years. The photo of the monument and the story of it was sent to the contest by Krasnoyarsk pupil Elena
Klunduk. The second in the list were a plate with a footprint of the Invisible Man that was located near Yekaterinburg Regional Public Library and a sculpture to a bird from a kid’s song named Chizhik-Pyzhik in Saint-Petersburg. The third position on the list was also given to two monuments – a monument to Vasya the Kitty and a Crow in Voronezh and a composition called “Anton Chekhov in Tomsk through the eyes of a drunken fellow who is lying in a gutter and has never read “Kashtanka””. There is a legend that being in Tomsk Chekhov lost a galosh what let the sculptor Leonty Usov portray the well-known Russian writer barefooted. It is also said that Chekhov did not like the city, and he called it “tiresome and not sober.” Therefore, the author imagined that Tomsk residents saw him through the drunken eyes.
