He was driving in the last days of the New Year holidays from the Black Sea to Moscow along the M4 highway, which became military last year. In one direction – tanks on tractors, people affably blinking their headlights, in the other – columns of tankers, whirring like football.
You slow down at the gas station, open the cart*: “Why didn’t you write about this? You are in silence? S..sh?” You close the cart, you look up: behind the minimarket there are tents, military trucks. Someone in a box brings hot dogs to the boys. Those brushes aside – fed. Life!
This is also patriotism. When you feel proud to see a military. And a desire to be grateful. That is complicity. This is the country that last year felt like a single whole, drop by drop squeezing Smolyaninov out of himself.
You refuel, turn on the radio (not much choice on the FM band on the road) and there’s a repeat of some fancy concert, probably New Year’s. Artists unknown to me sing about the Donbass, the Russian soldier, Victory… I wish there was someone in the Blue Light.
