According to media reports, 85-year-old Leonid Kuravlev with a diagnosis of pneumonia was taken to hospital No. 40 in Kommunarka on 5 January. But this became known only yesterday. The COVID-19 test was taken twice and came back negative. By the way, in Kommunarka they treat not only covid, it is a multidisciplinary hospital.

Now the actor is in intensive care, and his condition is assessed as serious. Information appeared in the press that Leonid Vyacheslavovich was breathing with the help of an oxygen mask, and doctors were closely watching him.

The tabloids reported that the performer of roles in the films “Such a guy lives”, “Viy”, “The Golden Calf”, “The Life and Amazing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe”, “It Can’t Be”, “Ivan Vasilyevich Changes Profession”, “Afonya”, “17 Moments of Spring”, “The Meeting Place Cannot Be Changed” and “The Most Charming and Attractive” were hospitalized from a “nursing home”.

In order not to advertise for the institution, we can only say that Kuravlev really did not live at home for the last year. But not in a wretched almshouse, but in a rather respectable boarding house – something in between a medical sanatorium and an apart-hotel.

The stay of Leonid Kuravlev in this “nursing home” cost about 7 thousand rubles. per day, as reported by the media. In general, the average price of stay in this institution is 3,000 – 6,000 rubles. per day. It includes various medical programs and care. The author of these lines in such a nursing home is ready to spend the rest of his life, starting right from the minute this material is published. Only he has no money.

To tell about the scale of the figure of Leonid Kuravlev for the national film culture, you will need books and films. But in short, he is practically the last true People’s Artist of Soviet cinema who has survived to this day. Almost no one of the really so brightly talented and at the same time beloved by almost all “strata of the population” actors in the post-Soviet space is gone.

Kuravlev is essentially a living embodiment of Soviet cinema at its best. And it is not surprising that the news of his serious condition and hospitalization made people sincerely worry. The truth about him is quite a bit. The majority fell into arguments about the artist’s children, who gave him up to a “nursing home” for the sake of an “expensive apartment.” After all, the newspapers won’t lie …
