Radio broadcaster Seva Novgorodtsev in a recent broadcast on the BBC called the prima Donna “a female archetype of Russia” and suggested that her portrait would look good on Russian money.
“It might be on the banknote of a hundred or a thousand rubles. Because this is a deeply Russian woman who is diverse in nature. Alla Pugacheva can be delicate, gentle and modest, or perhaps loud, pushy and boorish,” commented Novgorod.
It is unknown, however, as it was called, or a thousandth hundred-ruble bill with a Diva on her. Maybe by analogy with “Katya” Imperial times, on which there was a portrait of Empress Catherine II, this bill would be called “Alia”. Or Tradition to place notes on the iconic and symbolic for Russia, while individuals in our country somehow not caught on. In the Soviet Union, on money, of course, was Vladimir Lenin, but with the collapse of the Soviet Union, it was decided to make the design more neutral rubles – to print their important landmarks from different cities of the country.
However, in the private practice of Alla Pugacheva has experience in the creation and launch of circulation its own currency – however, the nursery, and only within her own vocal school.
Indirectly was immortalized on new money only Ilya Lagutenko, the leader and frontman of the band “Mumiy Troll”. Of course, not he himself, but his native Vladivostok got on a new bill in 2000 rubles. Attention to the similarity of the name of the main hit Lagutenko and bills paid showman Ivan Urgant, which one of the esters gave the musician “Vladivostok – two thousand”.
Uznayvse,EN notes that the recent initiative with the assignment of the airports of the Russian Federation of names of great figures from different regions have not had much success. So, in the native city of Yegor Letov, Omsk, attempts to call the airport his name is not successful at the stage of voting. And in Kaliningrad, the former Koenigsberg, as the same did not happen to choose the name of his native city of Immanuel Kant.
