For each one of us this photo – as a memory, no one knows what the story is over. This is a difficult man to his character. He was a historical figure. We briefly exchanged phrases about children and education. It was a very healthy man talk, “- said Prigogine.
According to the producer, he is comfortable with the criticism.
” I treat this philosophically: Yesterday we were called sycophants, today – traitors. We are used to all these roller coaster. Do not look for a black cat in a black room. Any artist nice when anyone, not to mention Mikhail Khodorkovsky, a compliment to the appearance and creativity of the artist. The meeting was touching.

It never ever was wounded in the right, he wants to attract attention and to apply for citizenship as a political refugee. We have an opinion. Why in London no one wants the death of Sean Connery for his desire to separate Scotland? The advantage of the United Kingdom – there are no restrictions. We have no prejudices on certain issues, “- said Joseph Prigogine in an interview with bbcrussian.com.
The singer Valeria long history of relations with Britain: in 2008, she led the promo campaign the album Incontrollable, which should was, according to the band singer to be her breakthrough on the British market, but the disc did not hit in the British charts.
