Well, to make a long story short, Vladimir Vysotsky was not Jewish!
Since Vladimir Vysotsky's mother was not Jewish, and in Orthodox Judaism and Conservative Judaism, those with a Jewish mother (or those who underwent a halakhic conversion) are considered Jewish, then that makes him not Jewish. Though he was not Jewish, His father was Jewish , and by Reform Judaism and Reconstructionist Judaism, who accept both matrilineal (by mother) and patrilineal (by father) descent views, he is considered Jewish.
Vladimir Vysotsky (whose full birth name was Vladimir Semyonovich Vysotsky) was born on 25 January 1938 in Moscow, Soviet Union.
His career had an immense and enduring effect on Russian culture. He became widely known for his unique singing style and for his lyrics, which featured social and political commentary in often humorous street jargon.
