In late July, Russian media reported on the hospitalization of a controversial artist, who supported the annexation of Crimea, and even wrote that Kobzon is in a coma. However, his family claimed that the artist is all right and no major problems there.
And today, it became known that in Moscow hospital at the age of 80 years, the controversial artist Iosif Kobzon died.
It is worth noting that since 2002, Joseph Kobzon has struggled with cancer. Had multiple surgeries, fell into a coma, but in remission again spoke from the stage and led an active social life.
Recall that in may last year, the Russian singer Iosif Kobzon was deprived of the state awards of Ukraine. The reason for this was the fact that the artist supported the Pro-Russian militants in Eastern Ukraine and has repeatedly come to the occupied Donbass.
