Brothers not by blood…


Братья не по крови... A year ago, died people’s artist of Russia Vyacheslav Shalevich. Who were his real heirs?
Братья не по крови...

Just imagine the situation. Growing boy, and though the father is never around, Dima knows that his dad is a famous actor Vyacheslav Shalevich. Mother, worker costume workshop of the Vakhtangov theatre, which starred the artist, the mysteries of this fact does so and answers the questions of his son: “Yes, he’s your father, but now he has another family, so with us he is still alive”. Dima remembers her father visited them at home, bought him toys, came to see him at the cottage. Here’s a picture, other pictures of mom somehow broke.

Once, after the death of the third wife, Vyacheslav Shalevich was the longest marriage, Dima was led through the back entrance to the apartment on the Arbat, where he acquainted me with his brother-a teenager Vanya. And then he began to come to the father to the theater, they were constantly in touch. Once in the artist’s life appeared Tatiana Vinogradova fourth wife, who was younger than her husband of 35 years, the meetings stopped.

Dmitry’s mother by the time he died, but he was still aware of what is happening with the father, and the last performance – “Marina”, where Vyacheslav Shalevich played the legendary philosopher and scientist Galileo Galilei, – Dima learned almost by heart. The setting of 82-year-old actor and taken to the ambulance, he became ill on stage, and after a few hours he died. Although the T. V. for some reason called the Dima another date, he still determined the day of the funeral, but there, except for Ivan, no one was talking…

After a year at the cemetery, he even felt like an outcast. The fourth wife of his father, not him, not with Vanya didn’t even say Hello. And now the 28-year-old Dmitry Fedotov (mother was against it, so he took the name of the father, then he decided to take her maiden) came to me on “live” that everyone finally realized – he is also Shalevich! Together with Dmitry at DNA test agreed native son artist – 47-year-old Ivan Shalevich. (The heirs in the male line will inherit the y-chromosome of the father, so it is possible to establish a relationship with the deceased person.)

Ivan does not doubt that he is his brother, but more he cares about more. Tatiana zombie father, I’m sure Ivan. He appointed her gynecologist, Director of the Theater Ruben Simonov, where last years was the artistic Director of without looking signed the documents that she brought him. But somehow, in the will, in which Tatiana was recognized as the sole heir to their star husband, his signature could not, for he’s signed for another person.

“Why will not even Ani (a daughter of Vyacheslav Shalevich and Tatiana), and all subscribed to this woman? What a useless scrap of paper?!” – angry Ivan.

He can’t forgive her that she “prudent ousted” him, his son, his father. And anyway, rode Vyacheslav Shalevich, causing the patient actor for the money to play in the theater. Later, however, it turned out that Tatiana constantly persuaded her husband to leave the scene and to support the family, she worked two jobs.

Cannot forgive Ivan Shalevich and a related exchange, when he was discharged from a large two bedroom apartment on the Arbat, where he lived until 23 years of age, and settled in the former apartment of Tatyana Taganskaya.

“She stole everything that belonged to me, my father, my mother…!” Ivan says and says it will contest the will.

The announcement of the DNA test with the information that Dmitry and Ivan can not be called brothers, was akin to shock, not only for them. For a moment froze the whole Studio, and then showered questions: “If Vyacheslav Anatolievich participated in the education of Dima, so at least he considered him as his son? What motivated them?”

How to find the answer? Perhaps a noble motive to help women who find themselves in difficult life situations, were the main. And maybe other reasons. One thing is clear: these two men took the secret of their relationship with him to the grave. But what is today I absolutely know for sure is that Ivan and Dima needs to change their relationship. After all, brothers can be not only blood…
