A week before the demise of the national artist, doctors insisted on a course of chemotherapy, but Tolkunova refused, citing good health.
At the end of February, Valentina Tolkunova’s condition was assessed as of moderate severity. In the hospital, the doctors categorically forbade visiting the actress to everyone except her mother.
“Mass visits are completely undesirable for her, we try not to let anyone in the ward,” said the hospital attendant.
According to the latest data, the cause of death was heart failure. Despite the fact that in the medical facility she was treated for a brain tumor. Tolkunova fell into a coma today at 6 in the morning. Then she was hooked up to a ventilator. The singer died at 8 am. The efforts of the doctors were in vain.
