  • He was born "in place of Ukraine" in Soviet Russia in 1951. After three decades of cowering under Big Brother he had had enough, and fled to the greener grass (and greenbacks) of America.
  • Yakov Smirnoff is a well-known Russian stand-up comedian (he was born in Ukraine while it was still part of the Soviet Union) who became popular in the United States of America during the 1980s.
