Irina Shayk’s Russian Upbringing
In her Vogue UK interview at the beginning of this year, Shayk talked about her upbringing in Russia. Irina was born and brought up in Yemanzhelinsk, a remote Russian town. Her mother was a pianist, but due to unemployment, she worked as a kindergarten music teacher. Her father was a coal miner. In the town of Yemanzhelinsk, there was only one main street. The town had neither any movie theaters nor any restaurants. Her father died when she was just 14 years old.
After opening up about her dad’s death she compared life in New York City versus that in Russia. She was surprised by the simple fact that in the US, one could simply walk into a supermarket and buy groceries. She had openly blamed and criticized her people for the bad governance in Russia. And she had no regrets about it. She believes in promoting peace across the world and leading a happy and war-free life.
