I will admit I've never heard of Leonid Yakubovich, but that's not unusual. Here in the states we get no exposure to Russian entertainment. Not to say you can't find it, I'm sure you could, but you have to go looking. And since I don't speak Russian, there's not much reason for me to. But I do appreciate a good character build, and after a bit of research this guy appears to be a character indeed. A wonderful caricature by builder vir-a-cocha.
