Hight Society Evening

Page 2 of 2
Advantages of such gathering as that that took place in "Praga" restaurant, that one can meet all together in one place, all needed vip persons. Weakened by alcohol, food and music that are ready to give you some promises that they will regret later, probably. In the hall number two located behind the backs off jazz-band I discovered Grigori Yavlinsky. For some time we looked, me and Yavlinsky at each other. Then Yavlinsky made few steps towards me and greeted me with a happy smile. He shaked my hand and he said that he wanted to talk to me one day face to face for a few hours. I said that my feelings towards him are friendliest feelings. We were such sweet men. Then we exchanged telephone numbers. Happy photographs worked with their cameras as with machine guns.

Mr. Krasheninnikov -- Deputy of State Duma and ex-minister of Justice catched my eyes and slowly moved his hand towards me. -- Do you regret that in 1998 refused to register us as All Russia Political Party? asked I. -- No, he said. And he smiled maliciously. -- Will you give Interview to our newspaper? I asked. -- Yes, he said and pronounced his telephone number, moving out of us.

Fat and huge number two of Liberal-Democratic Party Alexei Mitrofanov told me a story concerning my arrest and trial in 2001. -- When you were arrested, I asked Ustinov [General Public Prosecutor] why you have arrested Limonov? Take Chechens, so many of them running in Chechen mountains. And Ustinov said with horror that "state must not let that such things as Chechens do, were done by Russians. For fear that then will have a hell." Then Mitrofanov poured vodka in huge glass. I left him alone.

My old friend from French days Lev Bruni smoked cigar. He praised my book "Prison to Prison" as a piece of classical literature. Poet Michel Gendelev said that "Book of Water" prefect text. Genrich Padva said that my book "Hunting for Anatoli Bykov" is excellent research. That last Padva's appreciation made me happy, because Padva was Bykov's lawyer, so he knows the truth. Mister Pushkov -- tele-star anchor-man of TVC-program "Post Scriptum" assured me that his reportage about National-Bolsheviks Party will be well balanced and just. That my fears I have expressed during shooting of reportage were unfounded. When we left "Echo of Moscow" anniversary, Minister of Culture Mr. Schvidkoi was talking on his mobile telephone downstairs. He quickly turned his face away.

We left high society, packed in our tiny mini-car. Four National-Bolsheviks. Happy.

On Saturday nigh TVC translated "Post Scriptum." In one moment Pushkov have assembled to reportage about National Bolsheviks who do you think? Yes, Adolph Hitler.
