Russia has a female face, or When your daughter’s braid in jail

The matron Ana pavlikova weave the braids, and I do not understand what sentimental describing this: when your daughter braid her aunt from jail is horrible. Awful to drink tea and go to bed knowing that your child is in the camera, horrible to testify when they beat you, knowing that you are not to blame.

I had never been away from family Pavlakovich. Don’t even know where they live. But I know that in the big room they stood the green sofa, he is now broken, and in the smaller room, where before there was a girl Anya – on the wall was plastered with images of rainbow ponies. Why do I know what Anya was courting crested parrots, but didn’t get to see their offspring. I also know that Anya’s killed the slug.

I think I do know about this family and this apartment is too much for a stranger. But I have nowhere to go. I see from jail via video link in court on the extension of his preventive measure stands trembling child with two braids. And something inside me breaks string: I have four children and, judging from what I see, none of them are immune from that here and so to shake by video link with the court.

What is going on?

Why do I have to live with the knowledge of how big the evil guys in masks in the early morning of 15 March 2018 dropped the cage with Anya’s parrots, crushed berets slug, kick broke the sofa, went to children’s drawings, yelled at Anya mate, did not give Anya’s sister to change a screaming baby’s diaper, finally drove 17-year-old girl through Moscow in jail, and then yelled and tormented, tortured and screaming. And so – as much as 5 months before we got outside, the elections, the championship.

I read her letters and listen to what she says in court. I understand how and why Anya could make friends with Masha, I can easily imagine how two teenage girls from morning to night discussing their favorite of these animals and figure out how once, in a large and bright tomorrow will open the receiver for the homeless animals and save the day.

Anyone who has dealt with teenagers knows how fervently these people want and how sharply react to any imperfection of the world, lie and injustice. Especially if you lie and do meanness adults.

Don’t know, did those who gave the instruction to arrest Anna, Masha and Ruslan, how many enemies they will acquire in a world where justice and truth are valued the most. In the world of teenagers.

Our opinion, it seems, no one thought to consider, once all of this is happening right under our noses, in a big city of Moscow, where all together, arm in arm, the intelligentsia and the police, yesterday, was so excited about the world Cup, where the beautiful borders, graceful Linden trees and a European café, where young mothers are lectured about conscious parenting, and young grandmother, they attend workshops on how to love and accept yourself at any age, where the picnic of “Afisha” and seminars “Hands”….

Here’s a few kilometers away from it all matron Ana pavlikova weave the braids, and I do not understand what sentimental describing this: when your daughter braid her aunt from jail is horrible. Awful to drink tea and go to bed knowing that your child is in the camera, horrible to testify when they beat you, knowing that you are not to blame. It’s awful to live so that the meaning of your life is someone else’s pain and possibly death. I can’t imagine what motivated the agent provocateur of the FSB, Alexander Konstantinov, nicknamed “Ruslan D”, when drew teenagers in your telegram chat, invented for them the organization, to fit the need of the article, and reported to his superiors: the file sent can be taken.

I understand that now all these would-be investigators, thugs, operatives, at the right time covering eye prosecutors and weak judges with a dull votes probably annoyed click my tongue and roll my eyes, bumping here and there on public anger about what is happening around fabricated against teenagers doing “the New greatness”. I understand if they slowly ask, they will reply: “what this? We are all under the order did threat the youth was tracked down and caught everything in time, to the point, why are you alarmed?”

And the answer here, in General, nothing special: every day in the country are illegal arrests, torture and unjust sentences.

But now a special case: it concerns children. Children may not be anything, even the future. But they have a mom. And there is nothing scarier than the wrath of mother.

Russian female breed, it is largely special. On the women’s shoulders the country, in General, made the entire twentieth century: while men were shot and imprisoned, maiming, and depriving of hope, the women, gritting his teeth, dragged his children. And I must say, you pulled.

Little hope, but suddenly pull out now.

After all, mom can’t be political, class, ideological and other differences, if they share something much more: motherhood.

Angry mom coming to defend the integrity of their children, their freedom and life is a huge force that dare not be considered only an imbecile. Especially in Russia. Because Russia – a woman’s face.
