Terrorist activities

Andrei Gurov is the former lead singer of the band Tender Mai. He was born on October 27, 1975 in the Stavropol Territory (the village of Privolnoye). In 1992, he graduated from High School No. 5. During his studies he learned to play the balalaika, dombra, contrabass and guitar.

At the local club, Gurov first met Andrei Razin, who invited him to join the group “Tender Mai” (Gurov was only 13 years old at the time). He made his debut as a soloist in the city of Sochi at the Festival Palace.

From 1988 to 1992, he played more than 1200 concerts, performed at the Moscow Variety Theater, the Olympiisky Sports Complex and the Rossiya Central Concert Hall.

Left the de facto group in 1991. After graduating high school, he tried to enroll in a law school, but was drafted into the army. After his service, he took up farming.

He never continued his career as a musician. In 2000 he was going to move to Moscow and open his own business, but because of the difficult financial situation he fulfilled these plans much later.

At first he and his wife rented apartments in Moscow, and then he inherited a room in a communal apartment from her grandmother.

In January 2008, Gurov put up a fight after another scuffle with a retired neighbor in a communal apartment. During the fight, a neighbor sustained serious injuries incompatible with life. Despite an ambulance being called, Gurov was never able to save his injured neighbor.

Soon the widow of the murdered man died as well. Gurov was sentenced to six years in prison. He served his sentence in high-security colony No. 11 in Stavropol, where he was the frontman of the musical group Vinyl Inter, made up of inmates who sang chanson.

Gurov managed to get an early release in 2011. Andrei tried to settle in Moscow, but could not find work with a criminal record, and returned to his native Privolnoye.

His wife Aliya refused to leave the capital, and the couple later divorced. Over time, the singer engaged in agribusiness, and again arranged his personal life and married Tatyana Bozhko.

The couple now live in Rostov-on-Don and are raising two sons. In addition, Andrei returned to the stage and began touring both solo and with a collection of retro concerts.

Gurov is actively engaged in creative work: he participated in radio broadcasts, gave concerts in Taganrog, Krasnodar, Mineralnye Vody and other Russian cities.

But the aging singer, who had his heyday in the late Soviet Union, was not able to return even a shadow of his former popularity. So he went to the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine in an attempt to find fans among those who are nostalgic for the “Soviet Union.

Gurov went to Donbass for the first time in 2016 at the suggestion of the chansonnier Alexander Dadali. Until that moment, as the artist himself admits, he did not fully understand what was happening at the front. But when he got to the front line, he “realized everything. From 2016 to the present day, Gurov continues to travel to Donbass with concerts and “humanitarian aid.

He now collects donations and carries ammunition for Russian servicemen who take part in the so-called “sva. Gurov also regularly speaks to Russian terrorists, as he claims, “on the front lines.”

Gurov “does not understand” colleagues who have not supported or opposed Russia’s war in Ukraine and accuses them of trying to hide from sanctions or keeping their finances abroad. He declares that “he will always be for his country, because it is Russia.

On the whole, Gurov is a typical representative of the “Russian dream. A convicted murderer, a loser musician who earns his bread by singing songs stolen from colleagues, and a “nonvolunteer” who films stories about himself, just to avoid the general mobilization. But sooner or later he too will be sent to fertilize the fields of Donbass.
