I started this text on April 19th, having in mind to write about Germany. That fucking Germany I heard about from the tender age about 2.5 or three years old. That fucking country of Goethe, Schiller, Vagner and Hitler.
Then my telephone ringed. National-Bolshevik M. have called from Butirskaia prison. He said that hunger strike that have started yesterday lunched at first by seven National-Bolsheviks at Butirka; was under menace. That special militia forces: OMON, operating in prisons, have arrived at Butirskaia prison and have applied pressure on the heads of prison’s criminal underworld. Those guys in their turn are pressing National-Bolsheviks in order to force them to stop hunger strike. Jesus! That is last thing what we been in need, thought I. Goodbye Germany, anyway. I wanted to say that I am not forgiving them for killing my relatives and devastating my country. But for now they should wait, Germans.
Meanwhile, hunger strike that started on April 18 have spread through Butirka and other prisons. In Butirka seventeen National-Bolsheviks were on hunger strike: seven already sentenced for peaceful occupation of Ministry of Health on August 2, 2004 and another ten from those who have invaded Administration of President on December 14, 2004. National-Bolsheviks imprisoned in others prisons: at Presnia (N 3), as well as at Prison N 5 on Viborgskaia Street, and at women's prison N 6, also have joined hunger strike. What they will do, those couragous heroes? The situation is not easy one, as repressions by special militia forces will punish all prison inmates, in order to stop National-Bolsheviks strike. Speical militia forces will get into Butirka and they will beat up all inmates in order to turn them against National-Bolsheviks. Germany, oh Germnay far away, at distance of space and time, but how will end that conflict?
I have on my table a letter of one National-Bolshevik Sergei Ejov, addressed to President Putin, to the Government of the Russian Federation, to the Deputies of State Duma, etc. I will translate it from Russian:
"I, Ejov Sergei Aleksandrovich, born 1985, member of National-Bolsheviks Party, in connection with politic of governing power which can be characterized as repressive towars its own citizens. I declare non time-limited hunger strike. My demands are such:
"1) Observance of Constitution of Russia and observance of human rights on territory of Russian Federation.
"2) Closure of death camp ‘White Swan' near city of Solikamsk, as well as few simular to "White Swan" camps, where citizens of Russia thinking differently than government, are tortured.
"3) Stop to repressions on political grounds. Interdiction for such organisations as Ministry of Interior (MVP), and State Security Agency (FSB) to intervene in politics.
"4) To give a status of political prisoners to National-Bolsheviks prisoners, participants of such actions as peaceful occupation of Ministry of Health (02.08.2004) and of President's Administration (14.12.2004).
"5) Wide Amnesty, because prisons of Russia are owercrowded.
"I have no claims to Administration of Butirskaya prison.
"Hunger strike or refuse to take food I am starting on 00.00, April 18, 2005. I inform you, that I have some chronical diseases. In that very moment I am held at CISO 77/2, Administration of Realization of Punishments, Moscow. 18.04.2005. Ejov S.A. Signature."
As those events were taking place, I called to Mr. Agranovsky, lawyer, for advice. He happened to be in that moment inside the building of President's Administration on Iliinka Street, 23. Together with parents of National-Bolsheviks have been arrested at that very place on December 14, 2004, for a crime to demand publicly the President's resignation. Mr. Agranovksy said that Authorities don't want to talk to parents. The parents of National-Bolsheviks are calling their action "Occupation-2," they wish by their action to put a pressure on government, but governments officials are not present. Parents refuse to leave, so far place is crowded, noisy and tense. On the phone I was able to hear parents screams and yells. We have decided that Agranovsky will go to State Duma and will try to convince the deputies from "Rodina" and Communists to help National-Bolsheviks at least those, who are imprisoned at Butirka.
So, for a moment Germany is out of my schedule. Maybe later. For now I am calling and receiving calls from various people involved. Sometimes I am thinking that Russia could be prosepous and rich country if not that fucking German invasion. They bombed our cities into stone age. I remember ruins of Kharkov's Rail Road Station in face from a miraculously saved three story building where we lived after the war. Actually those were not ruins, but a sea of stones. Fucking Germans, and Fuking OMON of Administration of Realization of Punishments! Fucking stingy human haters from Russian Government!
It's raining in Moscow. I know, some foreigners think Moscow is exciting place to live. Yes, the concentration of thrill and horror per square meter is higher here then anywhere. Prison population of Moscow is about 80 thousand. Imagine that prisoners'city inside of Moscow: its dirty walls, pale skins of its inhibitants, sick eyes, wrinkled faces, and horrible odou of detention and dirt. Fucking Germans and Fucking Russians. Fucking prisons. After I lived in prisoners' land my 2,5 years I hate prison guards and dogs, and FSB officers, and FSB investigators…. Those are my thoughts, when I am waiting for the news from Moscow prisons: N 2 (Butirka), N 3 (Priesnia), N 5 (for underaged) and N 6 (for women).
