The age of the gathered people is mainly from 40 years and older. Many brought white roses, balloons and even a huge teddy bear. The fans ordered a lot of wreaths: one of them has the inscription “To the People’s Artist”. As you know, during his lifetime, Yuri Shatunov did not have time to receive regalia, so his fans themselves call the singer – a people’s artist.

A group of female fans organized a beautiful ritual: at the same time, 10 white doves were released into the sky. Fans released doves into the sky with the words: “Kingdom of heaven to the newly deceased George.” Yuri Shatunov was baptized and buried under the name George. Pigeons first scattered, and a little later in the sky they united in a flock.

About a thousand people passed in two hours.  Another memorial service is scheduled for 12.30.

During the memorial service, there were those who filmed what was happening or broadcast live on social networks. A fan of Shatunov, Svetlana, scolded some: “There is no need to turn the commemoration into a show!” Someone silently put away the phone for a while, but the majority did not react to the remarks: “We are filming for ourselves and those who could not come.”

After reading the prayer, the priest addressed the audience: “Someone grew up on Yuri’s songs, and will remember his work – this is an immortal masterpiece. When he is heading towards the exit, you will receive packages for remembrance. Everyone who came to the grave of Shatunov in the morning received small sets: they contained sweets and the text of the “Glorification” prayer.

Many have already left. But people remain around the grave: they still do not disperse, they communicate, someone listens to the songs of Yuri Shatunov. A fan group of women came in T-shirts with a photo of the Tender May soloist. Lyudmila told us: “I came from Sakhalin. I have a holiday. I couldn’t go to the funeral, and now I took a vacation. I met people, we all love Yuri’s work, we have been communicating for many years in social networks. We’ll be here all day. Several memorial services are planned.”
