This information was given in a report by the New York Post. Dima Nova, 35, real name Dmitry Svirgunov, was the founder of popular electronic band Cream Soda.
According to reports, Dima Nova with his brother and three friends were crossing the frozen Volga on March 19 when they fell into the water for fear of the ice. Two of his friends were rescued from under the snow, while the third died in an ambulance.
