Childhood and family

Oleg Andreevich always considered himself a native Muscovite, despite the fact that he came to be born in the city of Gelendzhik. The fact is that the birth of his mother began during the trip of his parents to the Krasnodar Territory, where Oleg's father - doctor Andrei Anofriev - was at a medical conference. That is why in all the documents of a famous actor, the city of Gelendzhik is still listed as the birthplace. Although in the Krasnodar Territory Oleg Andreevich never lived.
