“I mean that in the 54 years he was sent into retirement. You see, he was a ban on the profession. That’s all. That’s what I mean. I’m not talking about that then brought a deadly infection. This is a part. And “killed” him in 54 years,” said the trainer in the program “Born in USSR” on the TV channel “Nostalgia”.

Tarasov died on 23 June 1995 in Moscow at the age of 76 years.

Tatiana Tarasova also said that Mikhail Gorbachev brought to the people of Union freedom.
