MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Mikhail Mishustin expressed his deep condolences on the death of the People’s Artist of Russia Valentin Gaft.
The telegram reads, in part:
“For each of us he was and will always remain a dear and beloved artist, endlessly devoted to his profession, to the audience, to his native Sovremennik.
Valentin Iosifovich had a special creative style, always played brightly and with inspiration. For him there were no small or large roles, they were all significant, filled with his unique intonation and depth. He knew how to gracefully create very different images, to be serious, ironic and invariably charming. “
On December 15, at the Moscow Sovremennik Theater, a farewell ceremony is held for Valentin Gaft, who died on December 12, 2020.
