As for state awards, they seem to be used to everything. Then the US citizen Lyudmila Alekseeva (now deceased) is awarded the State Prize of the Russian Federation for “outstanding achievements”. Either the hater of Russian culture, Mikhail Shvydkoy, or the former Medvedev press secretary, Natalya Timakova, are awarded the Order of Alexander Nevsky. That is the media manager (thanks to which Channel One is associated with Urgants-Galkin-Pozners-Dogs) and the largest collector of American comics Konstantin Ernst becomes a full Knight of the Order of Merit to the Fatherland …
By the way, about the merits. Before the Fatherland.
From the presidential decree No. 83 of 02/12/2021: “For his great contribution to the development of domestic culture and art, long-term fruitful activity, to award the medal of the Order of Merit to the Fatherland, II degree, Yuri Vladimirovich Kiselyov – solo artist, member of the board of directors of the closed joint-stock company” Russian Media Group “, general director of the limited liability company” Bright Star “, Moscow”.
Do you know who this is? Pop singer with the stage name URKISS, hardly known to the general public. We won’t talk about the quality of the repertoire.
On account of YurKiss several singles and about the same amount of accusations of plagiarism. There are very few subscribers to the official YouTube channel and Instagram page. “The young man is at the very beginning of his career and plans to combine his work as a vocalist with business,” says the website 24smi.org. He turned 23 last December. It’s time to reward for “a great contribution to the development of Russian culture and art” and “many years of fruitful work.”
One of the main masterpieces of YurKiss:
Have you enjoyed the work of the holder of the Medal of the Order of Merit to the Fatherland? Infused? Now – the boring facts. The father of a poor talent is a 68-year-old St. Petersburg businessman Vladimir Vladimirovich Kiselyov, who started out as the drummer of the Western Ukrainian VIA Sovremennik, and in 1978-88 was the drummer, artistic director and administrator of the legendary Soviet rock group Zemlyane. Then he started producing, created the Music Center of Vladimir Kiselev “White Nights” in Leningrad, organized the music festival “White Nights”. Defendant in many scandals (you can ask on the Internet) and the owner of connections at the highest level. During the campaign for the elections to the State Duma in 1995, he led the “Cultural Initiative” Our Home is Russia. “The next year he took part in the election campaign of the mayor of St. Petersburg Anatoly Sobchak. In 1998 he moved to Moscow, where, together with Joseph Kobzon, he created a holding “Moskovit”. In 1999, he created the Federal State Unitary Enterprise “Kremlin” under the Administrative Department of the President of the Russian Federation. In 2010, he founded the charitable foundation “Federation”, at one of the events of which Vladimir Putin sang in English. In recent years, he owns the media holding “Russkaya media group “(RMG), which includes 5 radio stations – Russian Radio, Monte Carlo, Hit FM, DFM, Radio Maximum, as well as the music TV channel RU.TV. Annually RMG awards the Golden Gramophone and RU.TV music awards, “Russian Music Festival”, the “Stars of Russian Radio” festival and other media traditionally call Kiselev Sr. an oligarch, a billionaire, but there is no reliable information about his capital.
Note that the influential Kiselev Sr. has another son – twenty-year-old Vladimir Kiselev Jr. As you understand, he also sings (pop, rap), performing under the stage name VladiMir. Will not be left without a reward, not long to wait, zero doubts. For “long-term” and “fruitful”.
YurKiss and VladiMir
They write that now YurKiss is in severe frustration due to the reaction on the Internet. Almost every user expressed himself in the spirit that he did not know such a singer and did not hear his songs. The “Rise” edition wanted to interview him, but the awarded Yura categorically snapped: “I never give comments on the phone. I am very wary of such calls, because there are many scammers.”
Liberoppas scoff pretty well. And yes – there is a reason. Game.
