On my own behalf and on behalf of all staff of the DPR Ombudsman Office I extend my sincere condolences to family and friends of a great singer, a caring son of his Motherland and just a good person Joseph Kobzon. The people of Donbass share your grief.
This is a great loss not only for the Russian culture and politics but also for every citizen of our region and for the whole world.
Joseph Davydovich was a fair-minded and courageous person, reliable and caring friend of all people living in Donbass. We will never forget the sincerity and dedication of Joseph Davydovich, his assistance and support to people in need, which he always shared in these most difficult times for our state.
Memory eternal to you, dear friend!
