In Russia: Strange Behavior Following Michael Jackson's Death

9. July 2009 by Admin 0 Comments

Here are three tributes from Russia as they mourn the King of Pop's recent death.


Michael Shalenko-Jackson is Born

A 29 year old Russian woman has chosen to name her newborn son after Michael Jackson. Yevgenia Shalenko gave birth to her son on the day of Jackson’s death, learning that the King of Pop had died right after recovering from labor. She has filed a request to register her son’s name as Michael Shalenko-Jackson. Shalenko’s infant is just one example in a trend Jackson namesakes following the icon’s death.


Liger in Russia: "It's Pretty Much My Favorite Animal"

Another noteworthy “Michael Jackson” to emerge from Russia is the newborn liger cub at the Volgograd Zoo in central Russia. The rare cub was named in honor of the late pop star, thanks to the zoo director’s love of Jackson’s music.


Moonwalking in Red Square Forever

Another Russian fan said that the Moscow government should remove Lenin’s body from its Tomb on Red Square and have Michael Jackson’s body placed there instead for good, Novy Region news agency reports.  The fan, Alexander Valov, a music producer, told the news agency that he went to the US Embassy in Moscow soon after the news about the singer’s death. “I wanted to pay tribute to him there, to lay some flowers. I thought on the way to the embassy that it would be great to have his body embalmed and placed in Lenin’s Tomb on Red Square,” the man said.  Alexander Valov is certain that Michael Jackson would see the true value of such a suggestion. The man even said that he was already in talks with the sponsors who would be ready to invest in the project, as well as with the singer’s family – to have the body delivered to Moscow.
