    When no less talented children follow in the footsteps of a talented parent in a family, that’s great.
    But when the same offspring follow in the footsteps of a rogue father and a mota - it's creepy.
    Rest in peace. And the kingdom of heaven.
    I have not even heard of him.
    Modesty is the virtue of man.
    But about the kids Rogozin, Patrushev and others heard.
