1. Sergey Penkin The singer paid his debt to his homeland, having gone to the army immediately after leaving school in 1979. He served in the artillery troops, spent the second year of service in a musical company at the unit. Perhaps that is why Sergey Penkin recalls the army with warmth, noting that during his service he made many new friends of interest.

2. Leonid Agutin The text of the song “Border” is largely autobiographical: Agutin really served in the border troops at the border with the Karelian-Finnish Republic. The command of the unit decided to identify him in a military ensemble, but soon because of the numerous shoots to the AWOL he was returned to his main duty station. By the way, once Leonid detained a real intruder at the border, which he was very proud of!

3. Valery Syutkin The service in the aviation forces helped the “dude from Moscow” to find his calling and write one of the most romantic songs about pilots. Syutkin was assigned to the aviation unit in the Far East, where, thanks to his skills in playing drums and bass, he ended up in the military ensemble Polet. Once the ensemble lead singer fell ill, and Valery volunteered to replace the singer and performed so wonderfully that he sang in Polet before the end of his term.

4. Joseph Kobzon Famous patriotic views People's artist Joseph Kobzon served in the military in 1956 - 1959. Of course, there the noble baritone of the young man did not go unnoticed - the young man got into the military ensemble of the Transcaucasian region, and after being transferred to the reserve, he continued his studies with the vocal teacher.

5. Alexander Buynov The artist joked that he spent half his life on guardhouse. The reason for this was Buinov’s constant autonomy - he often escaped from the unit on a date with the girls. Alexander signed with one of them at the local village council and, in the days remaining until his dismissal, voluntarily left the unit for her sake. However, a few months after the demobilization, the young people dispersed.

6. Alexander Vasiliev The permanent leader of the Spleen group served in the battalion from 1988 to 1990. It was there that Alexander Vasiliev began to compose songs for the album "Dusty Past".

7. Oleg Gazmanov The author of the song “Gentlemen Officers” had every chance as a regular military man. Gazmanov received the profession of engineer-miner at the Higher Naval Engineering School, then he served in the Latvian mine warehouses, however, he went into reserve and chose to build a career as a singer.

8. Alexey Glyzin Left the third year of the Moscow Institute of Culture to go to the military unit in the Far East. Glyzin repaired aircraft engines as a junior specialist, simultaneously establishing the “Flight” ensemble. The same one in which a year after the demobilization of Alexei joined Valery Syutkin.

9. Lev Leshchenko The singer really wanted to become a sailor, but his strict father (Valeryan Leshchenko was a career officer, went through the Russian-Finnish war and served in the NKVD) insisted that Lev be sent to the Group of Soviet Forces in Germany. There, Leshchenko spent half his life until in January 1962 he transferred to a song and dance ensemble, where he soon became a soloist.

10. Alexander Marshal From 1974 to 1977, Alexander Marshal, then known as Sasha Minkov, was serving in the helicopter regiment in the Penza region. Joyful memories of the army practically do not appear in the singer’s memoirs, on the contrary, Marshall said that on the day of the demobilization tears of happiness stood in his eyes.

11. Alexander Serov The singer was called up for military service in 1970 and ended up in the fleet, on the Dzerzhinsky torpedo cruiser. Alexander Serov rose to the rank of squad leader.

12. Vladimir Shakhrin The soloist of the Ural rock band Chayf served on the Far Eastern border from 1978 to 1980. Two other future members of the group appeared together with him: Vladimir Begunov and Valery Severin. Shakhrin admitted more than once that he could not remember the code from the intercom, but the number of the “native” unit in Kazakevichevo - 2460 - remained forever in his memory.

13. Ilya Lagutenko The main “mummy troll” recalls the time spent in the army with warmth in his voice. He got a part on the Far Eastern island of Russky (the writer Yevgeny Grishkovets repaid his homeland there). During the outfits, Lagutenko wrote songs (“Pupil of the Fallen Star”, “Happy New Year, baby” were invented in the army), and on the weekends he painted.

1. Dmitry Bilan

Victor Belan (this is the real name of the artist) was recognized fit for service. However, he never visited the army. For several years he was on the lists of draft deviators, and the district police officer could not find him.

“We can’t go to his concert and disrupt the show,” the police said.

And to the questions of journalists about the service, Bilan answers that he prefers to serve his country on stage, and not in the ranks of the Russian army.

3. Timati

Oddly enough, tattoos “saved” the rapper from serving in the army. They covered more than 60% of his body, so the artist was sent to a psychiatrist who recognized him as mentally unstable.

But Timati is not afraid of such a record in the medical record.

“It’s better to be crazy than to waste your time,” Timur Yunusov believes.

Timati claims that in order to defend the homeland, it is not necessary to join the army - daily training is enough.

“I would make an excellent paratrooper of the capture group,” the hip-hop artist boasts.

Timur Batrutdinov

The Comedy Club resident served in the space communications forces. The comedian recalls that during his service he often had to “wave a shovel,” but on the whole the army left positive memories. During the years of service, Timur wrote the book “The Year in the Boots,” though he did not publish it. It has, rather, the format of a personal diary.

Timur recalls that his mother and St. Petersburg friends were going to come to his oath. When his time came to read the text of the oath, there were no relatives yet. Therefore, Timur in every possible way pulled time, turning the ceremony into a real performance. He read out every word with expression, making meaningful pauses.

Despite all the efforts of the artist, he took the oath in the absence of his “support group”. But after such a "speech", the unit commander took pity on the guy and allowed him to take the oath again, already in the presence of his mother and friends.

By the way, it was then that the command of the unit noted the talent of the young comedian and invited him to lead the army's humorous team. The comedian’s sparkling jokes helped her win the competition among the teams of the Moscow Military District.

6. Alexey Kortnev

The soloist and leader of the group "Accident" does not hide that he "slanted" from the army. To do this, he went to a psychiatrist himself and complained of headaches, suicidal thoughts and distracted attention. So Kortnev ended up in a psychiatric hospital, where he spent a month and a half. First, to the department for violent, and then in the hospital.

Alexey does not regret his action. He says that it’s better to lose a month and a half than two years.

Leonid Agutin

Like many other stars-defenders of the Fatherland, Leonid Agutin showed his creative abilities while in the army.

He was enlisted in the ranks of border guards in 1986. At first he was sent to Karelia, but after his talent was noticed by the senior management, the young singer was transferred to Leningrad, where he became a member of the creative ensemble. True, he did not stay long in it, and was returned to the unit for the will.

For Agutin, one of the vivid impressions of the army service was the capture of a border violator. And, although it was not a mishandled agent of the enemy, but a drunken tramp, Leonid was still awarded an award.

Military service for Agutin became a bright stage in life. Without it, his hit “Border” would hardly have appeared, which became the favorite song of all the border guards of the country.

Bari Alibasov

For Bari Alibasov, military service was the beginning of his production career. He went through it with a song and without a weapon.

Enlistment in the ranks of the army took place in 1969, and Bari went voluntarily to the army. Such a desperate decision was made against the background of parting with the girl. He served Alibasov in Kazakhstan.

Gosha Kutsenko was drafted into the army during his studies at the Lviv Polytechnic Institute. “I served from 1985 to 1987. My rank is the foreman of the reserve. In the army, I was a signalman - ran around the field with a coil, even once fell through an ice hole. He served only two years, but managed to get injured - he gave two vertebrae to the Motherland, ”the artist shared his memories on one of the Defender of the Fatherland Days. Before entering the Moscow Art Theater School, Gosha managed to return from the army, move after his parents to Moscow and even study at MIREA (now Moscow Technological University).

Oleg Taktarov

Athlete, actor, TV presenter and producer Oleg Taktarov was an outcast until the eighth grade: he was bullied by classmates and other students. The father advised the boy to engage in martial arts and gave it to the judo and sambo section. The artist still believes that bullying has changed his life: “Yes, I began to play sports because of this, I became a champion because of this. I once stood up for a friend and then began to take revenge on all who poisoned me.

And nothing good came of it. Yes, I became a champion, but I wanted to be an actor, I wanted to be a nuclear physicist, ”Oleg said with regret in the fall of 2019.

Taktarov was drafted into the army after graduation and began serving in a sports company, graduating from the air defense forces. The artist recalls that he did not experience “hazing”: “Somehow passed by. He worked from 5 to 23 plus a company sport. In move. And then they made a revolution, at the 5th month. The call was strong. " Oleg graduated from the rank of sergeant and warmly recalls his army comrades.

Igor Nikolaev

By the time of the call, Igor Nikolaev managed to start a family and become a father. The musician entered the army as a well-known artist who was friends with Alla Pugacheva. Nikolaev drafted into the song and dance ensemble of the Moscow military district.

Igor took the oath in 1984 - for the solemn day of a young soldier forced to shave his mustache. The second case, upsetting Nikolaev in the army, was an outfit for duty on the barracks on New Year's Eve. However, service in the exemplary musical troops allowed Igor to avoid the hardships of hazing.

Nikas Safronov

In 1975, at the 3rd year of the Rostov Art College, Safronov joined the army, leaving school. He served in the missile forces in Valga (Estonia).

His artistic talent was often exploited by colleagues with requests to arrange their demobilization albums.

Denis Klyaver

Denis Klyaver is the only son of the popular comedian Ilya Oleinikov. The ex-soloist of the group "Tea for Two" studied at a music school in piano and began to compose music from the age of 12. As a teenager, Denis was fond of the work of the group "Alice" and once even ran away without demand for a Kinchev concert.

After school, Klyaver did not hesitate in choosing a future profession and entered the music school in the class of the pipe.

The military registration and enlistment office took into account the talent of the young man and called him to serve in the military brass band. Denis recalls the army years with nostalgia and regularly shows archival photos and videos of those years to his fans. At the end of October 2019, the eldest son of the artist Timofey went to serve as the example of the famous father.

Alexander Serov

Alexander Serov, like Ilya Lagutenko, repaid his homeland debt in the Navy. In 1970, after graduating from the Nikolaev school of culture in the clarinet class, the future artist was called up for the Dzerzhinsky cruiser. After several months of service, Alexander became the commander of the department of electrotorpedists. In training campaigns Serov, along with the crew of "Dzerzhinsky" visited Syria and France.

Even in the Navy, Alexander did not stop making music. He played jazz compositions, copied the performance of his favorite artists - Tom Jones and Elton John. Serov even tried to organize a jazz ensemble on the cruiser, but his command did not meet with understanding. The third year of service, Alexander spent on land - he played in the orchestra of the House of Officers of the Nikolaev garrison.

Among them is the Leader of the Lyube group Nikolay Rastorguev. He studied at the Moscow Technological Institute of Light Industry, from where he was expelled. At the same time, the army did not scare the grief student. He, on the contrary, sought to get into the troops, but did not pass the medical board.

Alexander Baluev often plays men in uniform: generals, colonels, police majors, intelligence officers, and even the chieftain! Of course, one of the artist’s iconic roles is the image of an officer from the painting “Bless the Woman”. At the same time, Baluyev is connected with the army very indirectly: he began his acting career with the Theater of the Soviet Army.

We also decided not to spend the time granted for creativity on “winding footcloths” Vitaly Kozlovsky, Nikolai Baskov, Maxim Galkin and Dima Bilan.

Alexander was drafted into the song and dance ensemble of the Ural Military District, where he sang and played the horn all two years of service.

Now a successful businessman says that the school of life was harsh, but necessary: ​​“I was an idler, a parasite, my friends were hooligans, we fought on the streets.

And then again - and the army, your last name doesn’t tell anyone, you are the spirit ... ”Mikhalkov’s military experience was extreme:“ A concussion, four weeks in a hospital, frostbitten fingers and cheeks, gastritis, 40 stitches on the back without anesthesia ... This is completely two different lives, this is such a contrasting shower, which partly set my brains and gave me the life hardening that any man needs ... "

Vladimir studied in the boxing section and was physically ready for the army, even studied for several years at the State Maritime Academy in St. Petersburg. After the army, the guy got married and already gave the actor a granddaughter. Well, Porechenkov provided the young family with housing.

It could not be otherwise, because the artist tried to dissuade her son from the army, but he rested: “I’ll go to serve!” Olga Kartunkova’s instruction before the service was published on social networks: “I pray that the Lord will descend and relieve you of anxiety. May the Lord take your route away from the dangerous road.

Sasha didn’t let mom down.
