Today, it is not customary to remain silent about domestic violence. But it was not always so. Statistics confirm that 40% of Soviet wives were beaten - and this was considered the norm. Rambler will tell you in which famous Soviet families women suffered humiliation and beatings - and for a long time preferred to hide this fact from the public.
Igor Zapashny and Olga Lapiado
The woman who effectively rode a horse in the film "Garnet Bracelet" was waiting for a terrible fate. The wife of the trainer Igor Zapashny (uncle Edgard and Askold Zapashny) was a flirt, and this terribly angered the artist. He could slap her in the face in public and beat her at home. Once Olga could not stand it and offered her husband to leave, to which Igor reacted in the most cruel way: he stabbed her with a kitchen knife, and then quartered. With the assistance of Galina Brezhneva, the killer received not 25, but 15 years in prison, but notoriety and obstructions haunted the circus dynasty for several decades.
Natalia Kustinskaya and Boris Egorov
The star of the movie "Three Plus Two" and the cosmonaut Boris Yegorov lived from scandal to scandal. The man beat the actress mercilessly. A couple of times Natalya Kustinskaya had to call an ambulance to control the bleeding. The artist covered her abuser for almost twenty years and continued to paint the perfect picture of the family in front of the public. However, the beatings experienced in her youth significantly affected her health and predetermined her further not too happy life.
Vasily Shukshin and Lydia Chashchina
All the friends of his third wife, actress Lydia Chashchina, knew that Vasily Shukshin had been spreading his hands for a long time. Friends constantly persuaded the girl to leave her talented husband, only then they themselves found themselves in his networks. Their marriage lasted only three years - but the union broke up not only because of assault. Vasily Makarovich fell madly in love with the young Lydia Fedoseeva, with whom he subsequently lived until his death in 1974.
Edita Piekha and Alexander Bronevitsky
The beauty, the queen of the stage, the mysterious "foreigner" Edita Piekha was not put in anything at home. Composer Alexander Bronevitsky (father of singer Ilona Bronevitskaya) was terribly jealous of his wife from scratch and did not hesitate to express his emotions physically. Once Piekha broke down and fought back. She decided to put an end to her relationship with her Othello only after twenty years of marriage.
