Limonov Files September 7, 2007
Happy Fucking Birthday Moscow, You Ugly Hag!
By Edward Limonov Browse author
Page 2 of 2

I confess, that my preferred city is Paris. I'll probably live in Paris, when retired from politics. But Russian politics such a bloody business, that you will almost certainly not meet pensioner Edward Limonov on Paris streets. I afraid so.

The weather of Moscow is also bad. When it is not bad, it is very bad, Three months of summer, the rest is various winter weather. I think Moscow's weather was created by joint commission of Ministry of Justice, of Ministry of Interior Affairs and General Prosecutor's office in order to punish Russian citizens every day. I see nothing good in Moscow city. If it will be swallowed one day by earthquake I will not regret it.

There is also a lot of bad people in Moscow. Ex-KGB and Army generals swarming in State Duma, as well as all sorts of lackeys and scoundrels. The worst humans were chosen to serve in Russian Government, in Ministries. Moscow's police, the best in Russia, however count in its ranks a lot of torturers and killers. Even the babies in Moscow are sad and gloomy.

Light is a sparse luxury in Moscow. The sun doesn't want to look at such ugly Russian capital, or else the other countries and their capitals have appropriated our sunlight? Have no idea, but even in my prison camp N13 near town of Engls at region of Saratov, we prisoners have had three or four times more sunny days than here in Moscow. I think that things with sunshine are getting even worst, sunny days are getting more rare than ever.

Also, Moscow is getting worse because of endless reign of mayor Luzhkov. Once upon a time in Paris, prefect Haussmann destroyed old Paris City in order to make it more comfortable for rich Parisians to pass through the city. But Haussmann have also another goal that was hidden one. He wanted to make Parisian Revolutions less likely to occur, so he destroyed the narrow streets. On old classical Parisian streets it was easy to build a barricade in few hours just using cobblestones. First thing that Luzhkov have done as mayor was to destroy Manezhnaya Square, made exactly of cobblestones. Manezhnaya was a traditional place of gatherings for oppositional forces. Situated very closely to Kremlin it was an ideal place for people's uprisings.

After Luzhkov's reactionary job, Manezhnaya has huge underground shopping center, stinking waters of Neglinnaya Rivers' bank are populated by bronze characters from Russian fairytales. Tastelessly, those clumsy sculptures are neighboring with eternal flame on the tomb of Unknown Soldier. Hero of the War, symbol of Resistance of Russians in Great War lies next to vulgar and stupid fantasy of merchants. Disgusting!

Luzhkov or his consorts have invented the Moscow's Day Celebrations. On the first and second of September Moscow is flooded with five million drunks. Quarrelling, vomiting, garbage-producing, ugly looking humans are degrading and dangerous. My advice to foreigners: you should leave the city's limits and take refuge somewhere outside of Moscow. Celebrating Muscovites are as dangerous as hungry wolves.

Edward Limonov is a leader of the Other Russia opposition group, and a regular contributor to The eXile.
