Yarmolnik Oksana claims that the legendary bard was in love with her at first sight. Eighteen-year-old girl supposedly for a while thought about whether it is worth to meet with Vysotsky. However, the realization that every woman of the Soviet Union dreams of becoming in her place, settled all doubts.
Their romance began in 1980. At first Oksana Yarmolnik did not have a clear idea of how terrible the disease, from which Vysotsky suffered. Awareness came later. At the time of Vysotsky's acquaintance, she was only eighteen years old. In financial terms, she did not live well either. The actor, who by that time earned well, provided her with spiritual and material support.
They spent two years together. It was impossible to legalize the marriage, because the divorce, according to Yarmolnik, could have an extremely negative impact on Vysotsky. So they decided to marry in the church. They had to visit more than half the Moscow priests before finding someone who would agree to this step. However, they did not manage to get married. In 1980, Vysotsky died.

Yarmolnik played in the same theater as Vysotsky. Even outwardly, Leonid was a bit like a legendary bard. A year after the wedding, Alexander's daughter was born.
