People’s Artist of the RSFSR Lev Leshchenko said that Vyacheslav Zaitsev was in “not very good” condition during the celebration of his birthday. On March 2, the designer turned 83 years old. This was reported by the REN TV channel.
“He was not in a very good condition, of course. He is already in such a half-forgotten state, and it was surprising that they brought him. Well, we could not help but go there, because this is our friend in life,” he said.
According to Leshchenko, he learned about the scandal with the sale of tickets for Zaitsev’s birthday only after. At the same time, according to him, star guests, such as Alla Pugacheva and Maxim Galkin, came to the holiday unselfishly, wanting to congratulate their friend.
“It turns out that the organizers were selling some tickets there. But, on the other hand, there was a fashion show, and in this way they gathered people to hold it,” the artist emphasized.
