Fans of the author’s work express their condolences to his loved ones. “My favorite songs … Blessed memory ”; “It is very sad that the great Russian poet has passed away. Your poems will remain for centuries”; “Kingdoms of Heaven””, write netizens.

Recall that one of the most beloved songs by fans “Natalie” was written in the 90s. Composer Yevgeny Kobylyansky recalled: the lines came to the poet by chance while walking along Chistoprudny Boulevard.

Suddenly, the moment came when he uttered the sacramental phrase: “Natalie, quench my sorrows, Natalie!” Then I yelled like a madman: “Give me this song soon!” Dolzhenkov shrugged his hands in response and said: “I don’t have a song, I just came up with it …” When I returned from a walk, the melody “Natalie” already sounded in my head in the form in which we hear it today. Anatoly wrote poems to the finished music”, — shared Kobylyansky.
