a.k.a. Vitalina Romashkova
I was born in 1981 in the nice city of Baku, Azerbaijan. I grew
up there and went to primary school. Then, because of the political
situation [the first wave of Armenian pogroms in Baku. K. V.]
our family had to leave Baku in November, 1988. We moved to Yerevan,
Armenia, where we lived the next 6 years and where I learned Armenian.
A few years later my parents were offered good positions in Samara,
Russia, so we moved to a new city once again. Since then we've been
living there though I visit Armenia often.
