From the recollections of Lia Kantorovich by the poet Alexander Galich.


"I am certain that she never cried: "For the Motherland, for Stalin!" or "Death to the German invaders!" Of course not! She must have said something very simple, something like the words she would utter in those days long gone, when we came out of the dressing room onto our Patriarch Ponds, and Lia, banging her figure skate on the ice, would merrily shout at us: — Guys, follow me!"https://newtimes.ru/articles/detail/117323
