Corr.: Irina Vasilievna, who did you want to be in childhood, who did you dream of becoming?

Irina Dolgushina: At school, I always had three favorite subjects: literature, history, and, on the other hand, geometry.
Hence my throwing between journalism and aircraft design.
In the 10th grade, I even studied at correspondence preparatory courses at the Kharkov Institute of Civil Aviation Engineers. But after graduating from school, still undecided, she went to work … in the regional newspaper Svetly Put in the Rostov region. It is clear that then there was a study at the Rostov State University in journalism. And continuous service to his beloved profession for more than 40 years.

I.D.: Mikhail Sholokhov (I had a chance to meet him at his house in the village of Veshenskaya and receive an autographed book Quiet Don from him as a gift), Irvin Shaw, Arseniy Tarkovsky, Salvador Dali (twice I visited his house-museum in the outskirts of Barcelona), Sergei Rachmaninoff and George Gershwin.

Corr.: Do you have your favorite literary characters or heroes from real life?

And I am very proud that I speak Russian, I know it, I love it and continue with enthusiasm to comprehend its endless depths.

Corr.: Your favorite saying?

I. d.: There are three of them. No goal justifies funds, even if it is the media! Death is the best invention of life. Everything passes and this will pass!
