    I always knew, she has a jugoslavian name, but I’m surprised,
    that her mother is russian. Interesting, how works such marriage? I know jugoslavian people, they always
    tell “a husband is a lord at home”, but russian women should
    be rather dominant themselves. I bet, her parents are divorce.
