"This is my father Olexandr Nikolaiev. At that time, he was studying chemistry at Dnepropetrovsk University. In the photo, the father is in red socks. He says he bought a pair of red and a pair of yellow socks to stand out from the crowd. He recalls that back then he was a Beatles fan and wanted to add something extravagant to his image, not the kind of clothes worn by the majority."
