CHISINAU, June 29 (Itar-Tass) - A monument to Vladimir Vysotsky, a Russian poet, singer and theatre and movie actor, will be built in the town of Beltsy in Moldova.
"Vysotsky, who would have turned 75 this year, is a legend and symbol of era that changed the country and us. His creative works unite people irrespective of nationality, age or hobbies. Vysotsky is loved in Moldova. I have always wanted his monument to appear in a city which is dear to me. I am glad that my dream is coming true,” Renato Usastyi, a Russian businessman of Moldovan origin, told Itar-Tass.
