Love etc.: Russia House lovebirds marry in Moscow

Married: Ed and Tatiana Lozansky in Moscow Thursday -- for the third time. The couple, who run D.C.'s Russia House restaurant/cultural center, made headlines during the Cold War: The Russian daughter of a Soviet general married the Ukrainian dissident in 1971, then her father forced them to divorce rather than allow her to leave the country. Ed came to the United States, Tatiana stayed in the Soviet Union, and the two were symbolically "remarried" in a 1982 Capitol Hill ceremony with Sen. Bob Dole and Rep. Jack Kemp to embarrass communist officials. The couple were reunited later that year, and finally married once more in the Moscow Registry of Marriages last week.

Over thirty years ago Edward Lozansky, a budding Soviet nuclear physicist, was getting ready to present the important results of his work in the area of plasma physics which he believed could make an important contribution to the search for the new energy sources.
However, not only this presentation was suddenly canceled. He was fired from the job, his marriage to Tatiana, the daughter of a prominent Soviet general, was pronounced null and void and on top of that he was “advised” to leave the country and make it snappy.
In 1982 they had another rather unusual wedding ceremony in US Capitol, when the groom was in Washington among Members of Congress while the bride remained under house arrest in Moscow.
This week Edward and Tatiana again went through a marriage ceremony in Moscow.
Can you imagine the love story to be more complicated with all that Cold War, Soviet and US politicians and collapse of communism mixed together?!

"Modern Russia and Soviet Union are two different countries, and I believe Russia is not responsible for Soviet crimes". It's very kind of Edward to say so, isn't it?! Here are the comments of Edward and Tatyana: ))
