Oleg – The Hunter

This is a short story about Oleg Timofejevich Odnolko, who spends a lot of time in Taiga (Evenkia region, central Russia) woods to hunt there. Hunting in the remote Taiga has become less profitable and much more difficult than it was some time ago. But all hard challenges that make others to step away do not scare him. Oleg is absolutely dependent on the nature and it seems that he even became a part of it – he is not an intruder, he belongs here, and he is not going to change his way of living as this is his home, his work, his wilderness. Almost like “The Last of the Mohicans” Oleg lives in Taiga wilderness, 130km away from closest village. It’s been 30 years, since he started to live and hunt by the Diupkun lake. Sometimes few men who come to help him on hunting matters stay there too. Cabin is heated by the little furnace, called “burzuika”. The word originates from “bourgeoisie”, and ironically connotes a warm and wealthy life. It is also used for cooking food. Always precisely clean and orderly, Oleg puts on his white gloves while frying meat cakes and is giving orders to his helpers like a head chief of a fancy restaurant. The huntsman’s day begins at 5 a.m. At daybreak, it’s always worth checking around the hut to see if there’s any easy prey walking within a bullet’s distance. If there’re no plans to hunt that day—shortly after breakfast the preparation for dinner begins. Soon after, the host Oleg and his helpers gather by the dinner table as if they were one family. “I’m not killing, I’m producing”, – with smile on his face Oleg explains his take on hunting. “It would not be easy, if possible at all to find him out there. He knows perfectly how to survive in Taiga. Trying to help him would be the same as trying to help deer or wolf”,- says Konstantin, a fellow hunter living in the closest village to Oleg’s cabin. Diupkun Lake is a place that “civilized” humans would find hard to survive. It is surrounded by woods and mountains – The Putorana Plateau, which covers the majority of Evenkia’s territory. In the local language “Putorana” means “flat like a table”. Frozen rivers and lakes are Oleg’s highways, when he is traveling with his snowmobile to and from his hut.

Freedom fire and revolutionary clouds over Ukraine

Anti-government protests in Kiev. After two months of primarily peaceful anti-government protests in the city centre, new laws that meant to end the protest movement have sparked violent clashes in recent days. Deadly violence erupted on both sides. Maidan – is a round square in the centre of Ukraine’s capital Kiev where the revolution was born and is still growing. You can choose any angle to observe processes there. Guilty brutal militia beating peaceful Ukrainians, or in contrary – provocative protesters throwing “molotovs” at their contemporary guys in uniforms. Seek for freedom, economic wealth and ability to choose are the core principles. Burning barricades, a black-faced protestant, woman offering pancakes with strawberry confiture on a side, freedom songs, warm jacket given by a stranger and a smiling “Berkut” guy beyond his metal shield. That looks extraordinary. Meaning of the meaningless fight could be found in between these lines.
