Galina Brezhneva: the soap opera

The Russians have made a TV series out of Brezhnev's daughter's life. A must-see for all us old Soviet hands! The article from the Moscow Times doesnt mention the allegations of diamond smuggling and other early forms of corruption that those around her were accused of. If anyone gets the DVD, please let me know! [Yeah, in Russian would be perfect!]

Galina was Leonid Brezhnev's only daughter.

Have edited the original. No idea why I typed "wife" instead of "life". Brezhnev had a son, Yuri, as well as the daughter, Galina.
