On November 22, the day of the anniversary of Dmitri Hvorostovsky's death, flowers were laid at the monument to the legendary Krasnoyarsk citizen.


Several dozen Krasnoyarsk residents came to honour the memory of the singer. Notable cultural figures and caring citizens laid flowers at the monument to Dmitri installed in the park of the Siberian State Institute of Arts, which bears his name, among whom were: Minister of Culture of the Krasnoyarsk Region Arkady Zinov, Head of the Main Department of Culture of the Krasnoyarsk City Administration Lyubov Sakharova, Rector of the Siberian State Institute of Arts Dmitri Luzan, Honored artist of the Russian Federation Larisa Markosyan and many others.

Among the bouquets was one of white roses from representatives of the city branch of the National Movement of Russophiles in the city of Plovdiv, Bulgaria. Admirers of the talent of Dmitri Alexandrovich turned to the Krasnoyarsk City Administration with a request to lay flowers on their behalf and explained why they want to do this:

— In a considerable, extremely extensive repertoire, in the 33 years of the professional path of the "Singer of the World" there was also a "Bulgarian trace", so to speak. This was the most famous and beloved by all Bulgarians, or specifically, those in Plovdiv and Russophiles, the military song titled "Alyosha", written by the Soviet composer Eduard Kolmanovsky to the verses of the poet Konstantin Vanshenkin 60 years ago, after their trip to Plovdiv. They were greatly impressed by the monument erected on the majestic Hill of the Liberators, called "Alyosha" by the inhabitants of the city. The monument is a symbol of memory to all Soviet soldiers who died during the World War II for the liberation of Bulgaria.
