Biography

The prominent opera singer, composer, dancer Boris Rubashkin has been popularizing the Russian songs and the Russian culture all over the world all his life.
He was born in Bulgaria (17.6.1932) to a family of Don Cossack Semen Chernorubashkin (his real name is Boris Chernorubashkin) and Bulgarian woman Teodora Lilova. Over 50,000 Russians escaped to Bulgaria in the Soviet era. The White Guard emigration has become his “collective teacher”.

He never lived in Russia, but his father and Russian emigrants inculcated the love for this country in him forever. If he didn’t have this love to Russia, he wouldn’t be able to popularize Russian songs and the Russian culture all over the world.

This text it’s based on interview, which this legendary man (celebrated his 70th birthday on 2002) agreed to give PRAVDA.Ru (all text you can see below).
