Marina Aleksandrovna met Donna in 2009.
“I remember well our first meeting – shares Murasheva. Alla invited me home to discuss cooperation, to help her to repay the debt to six million dollars. Pugacheva loaned a large sum of money to a longtime friend, banker Oleg Rafanovich. He refused to return them, citing the fact that his Bank “the Senator” broke and to pay the creditors nothing. I took on legal support of the issue. Met several times with Repanovici, tried to resolve everything peacefully. In the end it had to go to Dorogomilovsky court.
In the process the defendant even tried to challenge the authenticity of his signature on the receipt. But we, almost alone, managed to return every last dime plus collect half a million dollars in interest for late payment. Of course, working with such a star the first time, I was very afraid not to cope with the tasks, worried that not enough experience. In addition, Alla has always been for me an outstanding person, I still am a fan of her talent. Glad we are still cooperating.”
