After the cutoff, Letov shouts to the crowd: "I think the name 'Grazhdanskaya Oborona' is a good name, don't you?".

In 1990, GrOb split up. Letov began to pursue different musical directions.

In 1993, GrOb reformed. They released two comeback albums on the same day in 1997, then toured the US in 2005.

Letov died in 2008, ending the band. « hide
