Kulikova Alevtina was no stranger to the nomadic life. She was a military brat, so even in childhood and adolescence has traveled the entire Union. Alevtina was born in the suburbs, and the art-graphic faculty of pedagogical University graduated in Smolensk. In the 1960-ies fate brought Kulikov in the Presidio Shaykovka Kaluga region. There she met with Dzhokhar Dudayev, then a Lieutenant in the air force. As recalled herself Alevtina Fedorovna in his autobiographical book “a Million first,” they met quite banal – at the dance.
