According to Daria, next to Yursky are the graves of Valentin Gaft and Valery Khlevinsky – the three masters were very friendly and have now found their last refuge at the Troekurovsky cemetery. On the air of the program “You Won’t Believe!” on the NTV channel, she said that she often looks there. Daria also shared that she recently erected a monument at her father’s grave. Its grand opening is scheduled for February 8th.
“For two years we have been looking for a monument to be made by nature. The task is almost impossible, but we found a huge sandstone. The artist made an amazing inscription, ”said Daria. According to her, the Mossovet Theater, on the stage of which Yursky performed since 1978, offered assistance in the installation of the monument, including financial. “They were always in touch, but financially we did it ourselves,” admitted Daria on the air of NTV.

Jurassic admits that despite the fact that almost two years have passed since her father’s death, she still cannot come to terms with his loss. “There is never a minute when I don’t think about him. I believe that he is with me all the time, and often dreams. But I don’t need to sleep for this, it is in me. As it hurt, it is – you just get used to it, ”the actress summed up.
The fact that Jurassic has health problems became known at the end of 2018. Then the artist was urgently hospitalized in the infectious diseases department of one of the capital’s clinics. However, a few hours after the appearance of information about Yura’s health problems, representatives of the theater in which the People’s Artist of Russia served, reassured that he was in the hospital for preventive treatment.
