What Yuri Loza says – they say, there’s nothing: millions of people don’t think so. Yuri is honest, talented, sincere. All the people know his songs. Shatunov is a people’s artist for us. There are millions of us fans. He probably didn’t need it – he already understood that he was a folk. We need it for justice.

One of the fans of Yuri Shatunov made a sensational statement, though she refused to introduce herself: “The songs of Yuri Shatunov were therapeutic for the whole people. Everyone has lost a part of himself, and if such people do not live, then what kind of people remain to live on earth? All fans know: his departure is not just like that – they had a hand in him. There are people who have contributed to this. Yura fought for his songs for 15 years! Of course, no one can be blamed unfounded, but if all the same this question is left without clarification – then what to believe in this life? Yura can’t be returned. But his family suffers. Abroad, there was already an attack on his wife. We ask you to help the family move to Russia, to protect them. You can’t give Shatunov’s widow and children an insult – they are abroad. Yura deserved not only the love of the people, but also the happiness of the family. However, there was no evidence that Yuri Shatunov’s wife was attacked abroad: it turned out that this information was being circulated in a fan group. In addition, the family is not going to move to live in Russia: the artist’s children were born in Germany, the widow has lived there since childhood – she studied at a German school, graduated from the University of Munich.

An activist of the fan movement said that Shatunov's widow was attacked in Germany.  However, the woman did not introduce herself.
