Osipenko divorced Nisnevich after meeting Russian actor Gennady Voropayev.She continued to defy Soviet protocol. Together with a number of her colleagues, she spoke out against the Kirov’s artistic direction. However, she was one of the very few to speak in Nureyev’s defense when he was tried for treason in absentia in 1962, and she denied an invitation to join the Communist Party.

Keywords:   Osipenko, Voropayev, Nisnevich, Nureyev, Communist Party
