This is a picture of my family.

The photo was taken in the yard of our house in Chernovtsy in 1965.

I’ve been married twice. I first got married in 1961. The mother of my future wife, Svetlana Krasilschikova, was my mother’s friend. Svetlana and I were the same age. She came to visit her mother, and that’s when we met. We got married soon, and Svetlana moved to Chernovtsy. We had two sons. Alexandr was born in 1963 and Konstantin in 1976. We lived together 16 years before we got separated. She moved to Lvov with our sons, she is a professor and Doctor of Sciences now.
