The presenter of the program “Time” and “Blue Lights” Galina Zimenkova has died

Galina Zimenkova, announcer of the Vremya program during the Soviet years and Honored Artist of the RSFSR, has died at the age of 82, as reported on Channel One. Her unique and recognizable voice was loved by millions of viewers in the Soviet Union. The reason for her death was not announced.

Zimenkova actively participated in the festive “Blue Lights” for more than two decades and hosted programs such as “Meetings near Moscow” and “Let there always be sunshine.” In addition, she taught Russian to students in Japan and shared her experience in the field of journalism with aspiring journalists in Moscow.

Dmitry Borisov, a journalist and TV presenter on Channel One, emphasized that Zimenkova suffered from a serious illness for a long time, and her fate was difficult, including the loss of her son. He noted that she tried many times to help her son overcome addiction, but all attempts were unsuccessful. Zimenkova was left alone, and, as Borisov noted, if not for the support of close friends, her death could have happened earlier.
