I am a sentimental man, like all artists, therefore, for me it is not just a trip for another tour, but to return there, where your youthful, creative, far-distant life began, "shared Uvarov.

I love South Ossetia since childhood

"South Ossetia as it was in my heart will remain for the rest of my life. My mother is always surprised that I remember moments from my childhood, as I came home from kindergarten, as we were walking near the station, (...) stole gasoline at a gas station. In fact, I am grateful to the fate that I am working in the Russian theater in Vladikavkaz. I had a childhood dream to engage in creative work, I entered the university and after graduation went to the Vakhtangov Theater, and invited me there Vladmir Uvarov. I am very thankful to him, "- said Robert Kisiev.
