To find her father’s World War II grave, Natalya Pugachyova had to become a celebrity. She is one of the Buranovskiye Babushki, a group of singing grandmothers who ended up second at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest with their catchy tune sung in the Udmurt language, a distant relative of Finnish.
Her newfound fame helped her find the grave of her father, who disappeared while fighting the Nazis in 1942. At a press conference she mentioned her father, Yakov Begeshev, who disappeared when she was 6 years old.
