Gear Review: Rabil X Head by Warrior Lacrosse
Company: Warrior Lacrosse / Product: Rabil X Head / Price: $99.99
I want to preface this whole gear review by admitting to you that I fear change. I fear buying new jeans, I don’t like downloading new apps, and I don’t like changing my stick. When the NCAA changed the stick rules on me in 2010 I feared for my career. I ran doomsday scenarios through my head, a full blown zombie lacrosse apocalypse.
In 2010, I overcame my fear of change and adopted a new head in the Warrior Evo Pro X6 and once I got her dialed in I never looked back. I still use that same head I strung in the UC Davis ARC in my uni and pads before our Santa Clara game got rained out in Feb, 2010.
I’ve known it would take something real special to come along and change my stubborn ways. That’s why the photos from my gear reviews aren’t usually game photos; when a W is on the line, I stick to my weapon of choice. I never thought my next weapon of choice would be a head created by a midfielder whose style of play could not be more different than my own.
Warrior’s Rabil X head is branded as their “most technologically advanced head yet,” and it shows. It’s a healthy combination of the rigidity and hard lines of the Brine Clutch and the pinch and the offset of the Warrior Evo Pro X6. It features possibly the most open sidewall on the market, maybe second only to the M80 which is bizarrely open and light. This head is like a beautiful woman–it’s edgy but you simply can’t ignore its curves. It just doesn’t quite look like anything else out there, and when you see it, you know it. It leaves a lasting impression.
The Rabil X is a bit taller than the other heads I own. Find out why.
It comes in a variety of colorways that all involve 2Shot color injection meaning that if you can’t stand the simplicity of white on white there’s tons of options for you. And the colorways match nicely with the Rabil Dolomite shaft and the Rabil apparel line we’ll be releasing next week.
Wide open sidewall design makes the Rabil LIGHT for its size.
Warrior really didn’t overlook anything in the aesthetics department from the little branded additions like the Warrior indents in the throat to the Rabil symbol on the front. Part of the beauty of any head at first glance is the pocket so I’d really love to do a side-by-side comparison of a few different versions of this head strung, including Paul’s. Hopefully we can put a few next to one another in the near future.
One thing stringers look for today that they didn’t 5 years ago is a ton of holes in their sidewall. Holes equal options for stringers and this head gives us the canvas we need for creativity and small adjustments. If I were a chef, these sidewalls would be a pantry full of ingredients. If I were a kindergartner, they’d be a cubby full of fingerpaints. We used to be limited by the holes engineers gave us, engineers who likely had never cradled before. We’d drill new ones and interlock strings to allow mesh to float where no holes existed.
A ton of holes and room to try different sidewall combinations.
Those days are now behind us. Whatever pocket you envision in your head you can execute in this head. It puts the onus back on the stick doctor, where it belongs.
Tied tight and not warping. Yet.
The thing I’ve really come to appreciate about this head after using it for a few weeks is that you really can string whatever type of pocket you want. Lorne Smith uses traditional in his Rabil and said he’s been shooting as accurately as ever. Paul Rabil has a deep mid/high pocket perfect for flipping tires and shooting on the run. I strung my low “I’m feeding unless I’m wide open” dodge-from-X P34 pocket and I couldn’t be happier with it.
My litmus test for a stiff lacrosse head is stringing the first sidewall. If you read the last review I did for the Maverik Flight head, you’ll remember how it morphed when I pulled the first three diamonds tight. It led to a discussion of the relative merits of having a less stiff head for things like facing off, getting ground balls, and being in loose ball scrums. The Flight, while technically receiving lower marks in this category could pinch and pop the ball with ease from the first face-off I took with it. I don’t believe Warrior’s Rabil head was built for the pinch and pop, but it seems like offensively, it was built for just about everything else.
This is a STIFF head, whether throwing checks, shooting, or scooping.
This is a shooter’s head. It was engineered to withstand all the force Paul’s tire flips allow him to apply to the head of his stick. It shares hard edges with many Brine heads, something I believe that in combination with the rounder shapes typical of past Warrior heads contributes to its stiffness. If you’re a player who often has heads warp from stringing them or leaning on them or letting them sit in a hot car, I think you’ll extend the life of your game stick by getting this head. I feel the same was about the Warrior Noz. My Evo Pro X6 has lasted me 30 months of regular use. I believe the Rabil could outdo it if I gave it the chance.
Contrary to popular belief, durability doesn’t have a lot to do with stiffness. They’re definitely correlated, but not directly. Reebok makes some of the stiffest heads on the market and (SPOILER ALERT) we have more broken Reebok heads at HQ than any other brand.
Durability is about a head’s capacity to maintain its shape over a multiple seasons without warping or breaking. Believe it or not, 4 games in hot weather is plenty to find out if your new head is going to keep its shape and I was pleased with the Rabil in this regard.
The Rabil took a beating last weekend and came out unscathed.
Sure it’s already started pinching a bit, but because it’s stiffer and has a wider pinch than my Evo Pro X6 I felt like I was almost pulling it in to where I wanted it instead of pulling it too far into illegality. After 4 games of play it has paint from other people’s sticks all over it, scuffs from handling passes, and there are no visible changes in the structural integrity of the head. If I polished her up (which I won’t), she’d look like the day I strung her. As always, I can’t say with certainty what this says for the long-term durability of the head, but it passed every test I could throw at it in game situations.
This is the only category I felt brazen enough to dock points. At $99.99 this head is out of the reach of the player on a budget. This goes for 5th graders with a $10 allowance and college graduates without income alike. Sure, it’s not $119.99 which we can collectively thank Warrior for, but I can find a complete stick for the same price that’s totally usable if I have to.
At $99.99, I think you’re getting every penny out of this head.
That being said, you’re getting a lot for your money here. Warrior has come at this head with a completely revamped design concept. The head is on the longer end, longer than the standard 10″ which gives players like Paul the ability to keep the ball in his pocket longer during his shooting motion, maximizing the amount of torque potentially applied. Stuff like this seems simple, but I can tell you it’s costly from a manufacturing standpoint. I think this head is priced appropriately considering it’s Warrior’s top of the line head. I appreciate their efforts to bring the price of all heads down by making this one under $100.
I don’t think my score is unfair or biased. Warrior is pushing the boundaries of what a lacrosse head looks like. And with the new stick rules that just got passed, there’s no better time to be doing so. There are plenty of Warrior heads I wouldn’t play with, let alone in a tournament with a plastic trophy on the line. This isn’t one of them.
If you get your hands on one of these, run away with it.
I’ve been nothing but pleased with the shape, weight, feel, and execution of this head from top to bottom. Sometimes I still look down on it and think to myself “Why am I using a midfield head?” or perhaps more saliently “Why am I propping up the career of the only lacrosse player who clearly doesn’t need it?” It’s because this is a darn good lacrosse stick, and there aren’t too many ways around that.

East Coast Dyes: Rabil X
The Warrior Rabil X is one of the newest heads to come out from Warrior. This head was developed in conjunction with Pro player Paul Rabil. It was designed to be an aggressive offensive head. This head is X Spec and is legal for all levels of play. It is my favorite X spec offensive head and I would recommend it for attackman and midfielders. It has the tightest pinch and best face shape, pinch, and flare out of all of the X spec heads.

90,000 Bashkirs of the Yurmata clan. Column of Salavat Khamidullin. Part 2 – Real time
Column of Salavat Khamidullin about Bashkir births. Yurmaty: part 2 (end)
Ufa historian and journalist Salavat Khamidullin, talking about the Bashkir tribes and clans, continues to acquaint the readers of Realnoe Vremya with the Yurmata clan. Our columnist reports on the military campaigns of the Bashkirs and mentions prominent representatives of this tribe, including the acting head of Bashkortostan, Radiy Khabirov.
Yurmatants in the campaigns of the Russian army
After the suppression of the Bashkir uprising of 1735-1740, the process of the universal transfer of the Bashkirs to the service state began. The participation of 88 Yurmatants in the Prussian campaign of 1757 is documented, when one five-hundredth regiment was formed from the Bashkirs, which participated in the famous battle at Gross-Jegersdorf. In the Polish campaign of 1771-1773, 3 thousand Bashkirs went to fight the troops of the Bar Confederation.10 parties of 300 riders each were formed. The Bashkirs of the Yurmaty and Teltim-Yurmaty volosts were members of the 4th and 5th parties. A total of 183 Yurmatants took part in the campaign.
In 1789, in connection with the outbreak of the Russian-Swedish war of 1788-1790, three Bashkir regiments (1,500 men), as well as teams of Yaik Cossacks and Kalmyks, were sent to Finland. The Bashkirs who fought in Finland under the command of the notorious “crusher Pugachev” I.I. Michelson, who by that time became a major general, distinguished themselves in battles near the villages of Kiro, St. Michel, Cayenes.When signing a peace treaty with Russia, the Swedish king Gustav III wished to get acquainted with the Bashkirs, about whom he had heard a lot.
One of the Bashkir warriors was ordered by the Russian command to show the art of horse riding and archery: “This brave horseman (…) Akchur-Pai threw up an egg and broke it when it fell, shooting an arrow at it, fast as lightning. Finally, he took out an old arrow from his body and threw it to the ground, then, lifting it with his hand, without dismounting from the horse and, all galloping at full speed, he threw it up and on the fly split it like an egg, throwing a new one at him. fresh arrow. “The aforementioned Akchurpay was a Bashkir of the Yurmaty volost, whose name was Kucherbay Akchulpanov. He was the first Bashkir to receive the nobility. It was in 1793.
In the Patriotic War of 1812 and the foreign campaigns of the Russian army of 1813-1814, 20 Bashkir regiments took part, with a total number of 10 thousand people.
The government, in order to prevent further Bashkir uprisings, headed for the integration of Bashkiria into the administrative system of the Russian Empire.Therefore, the Bashkir-Meshcheryak army was formed, and a cantonal control system was introduced in Bashkiria. Bashkir officers were placed at the head of the cantons and yurts, many of whom became hereditary nobles. A new Bashkir elite was created, which became part of the Russian ruling class. Ethnographer I.M. Kazantsev wrote that it consists “of a pair of pistols, a rifle, a spear, a saber, a bow, a quiver with arrows, with which the Bashkirians skillfully shoot at a large space at the target and with such force that an arrow in 15 fathoms can pierce through not only a person, but even a horse. “
In the Patriotic War of 1812 and the foreign campaigns of the Russian army in 1813-1814, 20 Bashkir regiments took part, with a total number of 10 thousand people. The residents of Yurmaty took part in repelling Napoleon’s invasion from the very beginning of the war. Some of them served in the 2nd Bashkir regiment, which, as part of Tormasov’s army, participated in the battle at Kobrin against the 7th Saxon Corps Rainier. The general wrote in a report to the tsar: “… I ordered Count Lambert to attack the enemy with Vlasov’s Cossack regiments, Evpatoria Tatarsky and the 2nd Bashkir regiments and try to lure him out of this position, where he was under the cover of cannon shots in an open field.”After several attacks of cavalry and artillery fire, the Saxons wavered and tried to break out of the encirclement, but in vain. 2 thousand Saxons were killed and 2.5 thousand were taken prisoner. The victory at Kobrin was the first major victory of the Russian army in the outbreak of the war. To celebrate, Alexander I awarded Tormasov with the Order of St. George, 2nd degree. He did not forget the Bashkir either. “By God’s grace, We, Alexander the First, are the emperor and autocrat of All Russia. To our marching foreman of the 2nd Bashkir regiment Kaipov.In reward for your zealous service and the distinction rendered in the campaign against the French troops in 1812, and especially on the 15th day of July when the Saxon troops were defeated near the town of Kobrin, All-mercifully we bestowed you on the 23rd day of August 1812 with the Knight of the Order of St. Anne of the 4th degree ” …
However, even earlier, Aralbay Akchulpanov, the son of the hero of the last Russian-Swedish war Kucherbay Akchulpanov, received an award for the Kobrin case. “Mr. five-hundredth sergeant major Aksulpanov. In the name of His Imperial Majesty, the highest entrusted to me, in fair respect for your excellent bravery, in the battle on July 15 at the city of Kobrin, rendered, according to my personal in that certificate, I am transmitting the Order of St. Anna of the 3rd degree to you.The original was signed by the general of the Tormas cavalry. ” Aralbay Akchulpanov and his assistant Ayup Kaipov opened an account of orders and medals that were awarded to the Bashkir army during the war. The first lived in the village of Kucherbaevo, Sterlitamak district of the Republic of Belarus, and the second – in Yumaguzino, Sterlibashevsky.
The main part of the Bashkirs of the Yurmaty and Teltim-Yurmaty volosts was mobilized into the 12th Bashkir regiment. In 1813 he was included in the Polish army of Lieutenant General L.L. Bennigsen, and in September of the same year he was attached to the blockade corps of General Rosen, who was besieging the fortress of Glogau.The arrival of the Bashkirs forced the French to change their tactics: they stopped posting guards at night, since the Bashkirs’ favorite technique was night attacks on French pickets. On October 29, 1813, the besiegers repulsed an enemy sortie, during which 400 Bashkirs made a false attack on the flank of the French troops. On April 5, 1814, the Glogau garrison surrendered. After that, the 12th Bashkir regiment was sent home.
Yurmatants in the Bashkir national movement
To say that the Yurmatis played an outstanding role in the Bashkir national movement means to say nothing.Some members of the Yurmata clan became its core and driving force. For example, one of them was the leader of the Bashkir autonomists A.-Z. Validi, as well as his closest associates, the Karamyshev brothers – Amir, Girey and Mukhtar, the Ishmurzin brothers – Suleiman and Aukhadi, Shagi-Khaidar Akchulpanov, Khidiyat Sagadeev, Shagibek Uzbekov, Ibrahim Iskhakov and others. Since a more or less detailed description of their activities would take too much time and space, we will only touch on a few moments of their biographies.
A.-Z. Validi was born in the village of Kuzyan, which belonged to the Ilchik-Temirovskaya tube of the Teltim-Yurmatinskaya volost. The tribal association of Yurmata is a complex formation, which for centuries has included ethnic elements of various origins. R.G. Kuzeev recorded more than 100 names of generic divisions, “of which 39 are patronymic, 21 are ethnic and tribal, 10 are totemistic, 20 are topographic, color and dedicated to other realities.” Over time, Yanzigitova and Akchulpanova were added to the original four territorial tubes (Tatigacheva, Aznaeva, Ilchik-Temirova, Karmysheva).Small divisions (ara, pop) also appeared – Mishar-Yurmata, Mukshi-Yurmata, Arlar-Yurmaty, some of which then increased so much in number that they turned into separate volosts. Remember at least the Moksha-Yurmaty volost. These names came, as a rule, from the nicknames of groups of families, the line of which went back to one ancestor, married, for example, to a Mordovka (Mokshanka), Mishar (Mishar) or Udmurt (ar).
In addition, there were small ethnic inclusions in the Yurmata tribe.For example, in the 18th century, the Murzalar aimak was recorded, which originated from the Bashkirs of the Murzalar clan, whose settlement area was in the northeast of Bashkiria (Salavat district of the Republic of Belarus). Similarly, in the 18th century, groups from several families descended from the Kai and Ungut clans were incorporated into the Yurmatants. It was they who made up the population of the Kuzyan aul. The Unguts (Unlarians) lived in the north of Bashkiria, and regarding the Kai clan, its representative A.-Z. Validi wrote: “Our main clan Sukly-Kai, as well as close to us clans Sanakly-Kai, Yuraktau-Kai, Tauli-Kai are part of the Kai or Kaila clan.It was often said that this clan, before coming to the present lands, lived in the eastern Urals along the Irendyk … ”Not being the patrimonials of the Yurmaty volost, they were forced to enroll in the Teptyar salary. The Kai tribe was noted in the history of the Middle Ages. In Russian chronicles, the Polovtsian tribe of Kaypich (Kai-Oba) is recorded, and the Ottoman sultans clan came from the Oghuz tribe Kai or Kayy.
A.-Z. Validi is rightfully considered not only the leader of the Bashkir national movement and the founder of the Bashkir Republic, but also one of the founders of Russian federalism, an outstanding Russian politician of the early 20th century and an orientalist scholar.
Amir Karamyshev was born in the village of Makar Karmysheva tube of the Teltim-Yurmatinskaya volost (now the village of Makarovo, Ishimbaysky district of the Republic of Bashkortostan) and came from the Karamyshev family, descendants of Karmysh-baba, who served as officers of the Bashkir army. So, the mediocre esaul Kinzyabulat Ibraev Karmyshev from 1812 to 1815 was in the active army with the 12th Bashkir regiment “against the French troops and received a silver medal for the capture of the city of Paris.” Another representative of the family, Yusup Allaberdin Karmyshev, from 1830 to 1835 was in the 11th Kazan regiment “against the Polish rebels”.A.-Z. Validi writes in his Memoirs: “Amir was a friend of my childhood. From an old and noble family, the grandson of the famous Bashkir officer Major Yusuf Karamyshev, who lived in the first half of the 19th century. The Karamyshevs, all as one, are desperately brave and loyal to our ideals … They marched in the very first ranks of our national movement and the struggle for statehood. ” Amir Karamyshev’s mother was A.-Z. Validi. After the Constituent Kurultai of the Bashkir people, which approved the previously proclaimed autonomy of Bashkortostan in December 1917, Amir Karamyshev began to form the Bashkir troops.It was his detachment in April 1918 that participated in the Cossack raid on Orenburg, as a result of which the Bashkir government arrested by the Bolsheviks was released. Later he became the commander of the 1st Bashkir Cavalry Regiment, which he himself created, which participated in the pursuit of the partisan army of V. Blucher in the mountains of the South Urals. The commander of the 1st Army of the Eastern Front, Hayk Brzheshkyants, recalled: “During this period, the White Bashkir cavalry under the command of Captain Karamyshev was distinguished by special cruelty against the Soviets.”Unfortunately, on August 7, 1918, the hero of the Bashkir army, Amir Karamyshev, died of pneumonia. After that, the 1st Cavalry Regiment was led by his brother Mukhtar. Their third brother Girey was a member of the Bashkir government.
Aukhadi Ishmurzin was born in the village of Kinzebulatovo in the current Ishimbay region of the Republic of Belarus. He was a second lieutenant in the tsarist army, then became a staff captain and commander of a regiment of the Bashkir army (Bashkir Corps of the People’s Army). For some time he served as division commander and deputy military commissar of the Bashkir Republic in 1919-1920.In 1920, together with A.-Z. Validi left for Turkestan. Bashkir officers, who had rich combat experience behind them, began to train the soldiers of the Bukhara Republic in military affairs. Aukhadi Ishmurzin took part in battles against the red units. But in the summer of 1922, in one of the battles, he was captured. A.-Z. Validi wrote: “In July 1922, I left Aukhadi and his comrades in a village near the Sanzar River so that they could move to Enver Pasha in Eastern Bukhara, and I myself went to Tashkent to participate in the illegal VII Turkestan Congress.It was then that the Russians raided, occupied all the valleys and surrounded the place where Aukhadi and his troops were located. Aukhadi fell from a horse that stumbled over a stone, the Russians seized him and took him to Tashkent, and from there they transported him to Moscow and immediately condemned him and shot him. ”
Suleiman Ishmurzin (Ishmurzin 2nd, as they wrote in the documents) was also a second lieutenant of the tsarist army, then the staff captain of the Bashkir army (1918-1919), later the commander of the Separate Bashkir brigade of the Red Army, which fought in the summer of 1919 Kharkov against Denikin’s troops.In 1937 he was shot.
Shagi-Khaidar Akchulpanov was born in the village of Kucherbaevo, present-day Sterlitamak district of the Republic of Belarus. He was a lieutenant colonel in the tsarist army, a colonel in the Bashkir Corps of the People’s Army, and commander of the 1st Bashkir Infantry Division. Date of death is unknown.
Ibragim Iskhakov was born in the village of Myrzash (village of Murdashevo, Sterlitamak district of the Republic of Belarus), was the staff captain of the Bashkir corps of the People’s Army (1918-1919), regiment commander, later assistant to the deputy military commissar of the Bashkir Republic.Together with A.-Z. Validi went to Turkestan. In the city of Kermine (now the city of Navoi, Uzbekistan), he organized a military school, where he trained cadets in military affairs. However, a year later, his life ended tragically. Iskhakov was treacherously killed in April 1921 by the Basmachs – supporters of the Bukhara Emir.
Khidiyatulla Sagadiev was born in the village of Termen-Elga (now the microdistrict of Ishimbay), was the political commissar of the Separate Bashkir Rifle Brigade (1920), later the People’s Commissar of Education of the BASSR.Shot in 1937.
Shagibek Uzbekov was born in the village of Akhmerovo of the present Ishimbay region of the Republic of Belarus, served as a second lieutenant of the tsarist army, then as a staff-captain of the Bashkir corps (1918-1919), was a member of the Bashkir military council. After the transfer of the Bashkir troops to the side of the Soviets in February 1919, Sh. Uzbekov remained on the side of Kolchak, formed a volunteer detachment, which first joined the brigade of Musa Murtazin. After M. Murtazin’s second transition to the side of the Reds in August 1919, Sh.Uzbekov with a group of fighters went to Ukraine to Denikin. Then he fought in the Crimea as part of the army of Baron Wrangel. In his “Memoirs” A.-Z. Validi wrote that Shagibek Uzbekov “was wounded in Crimea, transported to Istanbul, where he died.”

The sniper of the 260th regiment of the 168th rifle division Akhmetyanov (Karamyshev) Akhat Abdulkhakovich became famous for having destroyed 502 fascists by January 15, 1944.

90,000 Portraits of parishioners: Makeevka – 5
The list of parishioners in the Central District of Makeyevka includes the largest number of parishioners, and frankly speaking, the specificity of this area is that although the distances between the apartments of parishioners are relatively small (the most distant houses are located near the railway station, which means 8 km from the chapel), however it is not possible to physically bypass all these addresses in one day without the risk of hack.
There are many churches in the central area.
Not far from the Mendeleev market there is one of the 4 Halls of the Kingdom of Jehovists. “At 3-5,” or rather along Deputatskaya Street, there is another small Baptist temple.
In the Central District, apart from the railway, there is also a bus station and a bus station. I myself do not understand what the difference is. The fact is that intercity minibuses go from the bus station near the Department Store, and all city minibuses go to the bus station, which is located along Plekhanov Street.
Along the same Plekhanov street, you can meet two solid temples. To the west, the Baptist Church is located picturesquely in the city park. At this church, the Theological Institute operates and the regional board of the Central Chemistry Bureau is located.
To the east, the Orthodox Cathedral of St. George.
The church was lifted up under the mayor of Dzharty. Rumor has it that the temple was built not only with the personal funds of a non-poor official, but that all local entrepreneurs had to contribute to the construction.Whatever it was, the cathedral turned out to be huge, and quite beautiful. Two smaller churches can be found at the so-called. “92-apartment”, and “on Pushce”. Residents of Makeyevka name stops and addresses according to local custom and not official names. For example, the names of the cross streets have been preserved among the people. They used to be named according to ascending (northward) numbers. They say “at 22” or “12” and the minibus driver understands that he needs to stop at Line 22 or 12.
As expected, the City Administration, the main post office, and many other institutions of this kind are located in the Central District.
There is a Humanitarian Institute nearby the City Hall. Along Lenin Street, there is another small university, it seems the Economic and Construction College. Pedagogical and Musical College at Butovo Perekrestok.
1. YADVIGA KASHUBSKAYA-TSEMBROVSKAYA
On carols at the Tsembrovskys’ I heard many interesting stories. Most of all, however, I liked the Polish rhyme, which both spouses learned by heart. It turns out that none of them attended a Polish school, but as a child in Mogilev Podolsk, where Pan Yadwiga is from, her parents allowed her to attend private lessons with the “humpbacked Anya”.Pani Jadwiga attended these lessons with her sister and thanks to them she still speaks and reads Polish without an accent.
Parents were ordinary workers. Dad worked in an engineering plant, mom made horsehair nets.
Both parents were God-fearing, starting and ending the day with joint prayer, in which four other children participated.
They lived peacefully, and Yadviga does not remember that at home, there were any quarrels.
Mom was two years older than dad and died at the age of 80.Dad lived longer and died at the age of 86 …
They had to taste what the famine was.
The Pope was short on the war.
Jadwiga was 12 years old, and she remembers well how dad was taken into the army: barefoot !!!
When I returned, life did not work out. To live, they dried linden leaves and chewed them as children now chew gum or “chips”.
We bought tran (whale oil) at the pharmacy, ate hominy and dried pears.
This generation of my parishioners has experienced so many troubles that it seems impossible to break them now.However, my parishioners experience difficulties from the most unexpected side. It hurts them when children and grandchildren keep away from the church and do not respect their elders in any way.
Pani Yadviga got to Donbass a little differently than usual. She was not recruited or coerced. She was “delegated”!
She graduated from the Trade College, and such specialists were needed in the Donbass. However, when she presented her direction in Donetsk, it suddenly turned out that there were no more places!
This dialogue was heard by a random woman and taking pity on a pretty young girl exclaimed “there are places, but in Makeyevka!” …
Like a guardian angel, she took Jadwiga with her, found a job and an apartment for her, and finally introduced her to her future spouse , Pan Tsembrovsky.
When I began to ask “how it was, tell us in more detail”, she replied “I was just preparing stuffed cabbage rolls, he came to a party and probably the stuffed cabbage rolls suited his taste”.
In Makeyevka, Yadviga had two sons and a daughter, she had four grandchildren. The eldest grandson is already 20 years old, the youngest granddaughter Ksenia is 13 years old.
Sometimes I met this beauty in a chapel. The grandmother is proud that she managed to teach the girl the Polish rhyme “Humpbacked Anya” … this is all that she managed to do in terms of her spiritual heritage.
Yadviga herself often continues to go to the chapel, but the children and grandchildren will soon dissolve in the “unified” waves of peoples and religion in Donbass.
Here it is the rhyme of “humpbacked Anya”:
Czekaj panie ogrodniku.
Co ty wieziesz na koniku?
Nic nie powiem, mój jedyny
W tym jabłuszko, w tym malina.
A dla kogo? Dla tej pani,
Co ciekawych dzieci gania.
A dlaczego ich nie chwali?
Bo to brzydko, kiedy mali.
Wypytywać się nie trzeba
A to co im, co do tego.
A któż pyta a ty duszko
Ale za to masz jabłuszko.
Wait, sir Ogorodnik
What is your bunny’s luck
I won’t tell my friend
Raspberries and an apple
It’s ridiculous to ask
Why should you know about this
Who asks, you dearly
Na, take an apple
For whom? For that lady,
She chases curious children
Why doesn’t she praise them?
It’s not beautiful when little ones …
2. VANDA LISHAK-RUDZEVICH
In the fall of 2003 the weather was fine.Makeyevka in the center looked like a very nice city, no worse than those impressionable villages that I liked so much in Korea.
The parish, in turn, somehow reminded me of small Japanese Catholic communities somewhere in the suburbs of Kawasaki or in the distant Kuji.
Old people also predominated there, and the number of parishioners did not exceed three dozen.
Everything told me that I was again on missionary land.
The territory was guarded by a young shepherd dog.
Delicious bunches of grapes hung in the garden; in the depths of the territory there was an unfinished construction, something like a stone grotto.
The dog pounced on all parishioners and visitors. It was necessary to tie her to a bench during the service, so as not to get dirty paws of visitors. Sometimes I closed it in the garage.
Grandmother Wanda once asked for scissors and when I asked why she explained that it was necessary to cut off a bunch of wool and burn it to ash. Then she will heal the bite wound with ash. Only then did I notice that there was a bleeding wound in the area of Wanda’s knee. She assured me that the bite was from another dog, but I never found out where the wound came from.
For several days the woman went to church with an open scar.
I had time to get used to strange methods of self-medication, but this is the first time I have met this.
All other parishioners were saints to a similar degree as they were superstitious. Such a mixture of Catholicism and witchcraft, which, against the background of “Orthodox” experiments with faith, does not surprise anyone.
Women, however, noted long ago that Wanda was a particularly strange person. It has long been forbidden for her to “wake up the priest,” but she will continue to attend Holy Mass, which begins at 9.00, appeared at 7.00.
I liked her immediately.
Like a real hostess, she will look in all the rooms, is the priest alive, and is he himself?
Then he will go around the entire courtyard, brush the fallen leaves with a whisk, pick the apples, and only then does he undertake to wash the dishes. During this work, he constantly calls out pain in his arms and legs. No matter how they hurt her, she, as the attendant, is always the first in the church!
Sometimes he frightens the priests that he will soon leave for Belorussia or die altogether.
But everyone knows that she will not go anywhere and that she is too early to die.
Wanda is just a symbol of our community.
Her homeland is the Rozakele farm near Juratisheki and nearby Trab, Grodno region. She studied for three years at a Polish school, so she reads old Polish prayer books every day without any problems and with enthusiasm.
Sometimes, even during the mass, she opens and reads, because what the priest says in the sermon, she does not even hear everything.
In her youth, Wanda visited the church in Survilishki, three kilometers from her native farm, then the church was closed by the communists, and she had to stomp 6 kilometers to Trab.
Both parents lived for 70 years.
Pope Jan Rudzevich was 8 years older than his wife Emilia, nee Matskevich. Dad spent several years in the United States in his youth, where he already had two brothers and a sister. He returned, however, because, as Wanda explains, “the climate did not suit him.”
Served in the tsarist army. He was wounded in the lungs and therefore received state benefits. He lived on a farm of 50 hectares, had his own forest, a loving wife, with whom several children never quarreled.
After the war, all these delights disappeared.
The Polish school was closed, the villagers were herded into collective farms, taking away the land. Some of the people left for Poland, some were sent to Siberia.
Wanda’s family was registered with the NKVD, and they also had to send them far, far away. They even managed to arrest one of the sisters. It turned out, however, that the Soviet partisans several times enjoyed the hospitality of the Rudzevichs and constantly promised that they would not forget and would reward!
It’s hard to believe it … however, they kept their word.
Wanda has four brothers and three sisters.
One of the sisters Marysya left for Poland forever, brother Peter to Kazakhstan, the second sister Stas to Ukraine in Makeyevka.
The oldest sister Yanya and the youngest Melania remained in Belarus.
It is difficult to assemble a single whole from Wanda’s stories, she “walks in circles”.
However, it is clear that for years she took care of her sick mother and had no intention of getting married. Probably used to being alone.
It is admitted that some Polish soldier claimed her hand.Now she regrets that she told him, because a few years later Stasya, who had left for Ukraine, fell ill and the sisters who remained in Belarus persuaded Wanda to marry her husband for a widower and look after the children of her late sister.
She resisted, but finally gave up.
Regrets to this day.
Came, however, to Donbass.
Here he remembers a lot of poems and proverbs learned in childhood from a talented neighbor.
Here are some samples of her work:
“Uspokoję moje serce
Gdy staniemy przed kobiercem… “
” I will calm my heart,
when I get the crown “
Bez miłego ja gasnę jak świeca
A bez miłości więdnę jak trawa”
“Without a sweetheart, I fade like a candle,
Without love, I fade like grass 9000 “Obiecała a nie dała chusteczki jedwabnej
Czekaj Jasiu potem, jak wyszyję złotem
Żeby ojciec ani matka nie wiedzieli o tym
Ojciec matka nie wie, ale ludzie wiedzą,
że u nas legionisty siedzą
Jeden pije piwko, drugi gorzałeczkę
Trzeci siedzi zasmucony, że zdradził dzieweczkę
A on nie zdradził, ona się zdradziła
I ta ciemna nocka co po niej chodziła “
I promised, but didn’t give me a silk handkerchief
Parents do not know, but neighbors know,
That Legionnaires are sitting in our village.
One drinks beer, another vodka,
The third sits completely sad, having cheated on the girl.
No, not him, she betrayed
And that dark night, among her she walked
„Smutna wierzba nad ruczajem
Kąpie swój żałobny włos
Smutny żołnierz co z wieczora,
Śle po sobie taki głos
Powiedz głosie mej rod jda nie tł
ksie głosie mej rod jda nie tł
9179 , każdy krzak
Tu mi smutno, tak ponuro,
Woła na mnie: gdzie twój kraj
Nie zobaczył ojca matki
Luby swej jak róży kwiat
Uśmieki słodki dla nieł17 rz.. ”
“ A sad willow tree over a brook
Bathes her sad braid
A sad soldier in the evening
Sends a voice behind him
Say a voice to the whole family
I have not seen them for so long
How long I miss her, my native country
There is my dear every hill, and weed,
Here I am sad and dreary
Calls me: where is your land
I did not see dad, mom
And a girl that is like a rose
Sweetly smiled from a rare,
No one will ease my lot. ”
At the age of 38, Wanda gave birth to her only son, whom, according to the old woman, the police recruited him during the Andropov era in order to catch dishonest sellers who dispensed alcoholic beverages to minors.The guy in his 16 years looked like an adult, and when trying to buy vodka, the police, hot on the trail, arranged for him to check his documents, and in front of the seller it turned out that he was still a child. The seller lost his job and the “cops” could report to their superiors about a well-run action to encourage sobriety. Time passed, and Gennady was given more and more special assignments. Once, however, detectives dissatisfied with his work “rolled” due to the fact that he did not want to work as an informer anymore. He was 27 years old and almost 2 meters tall, played the guitar, was a late, but beloved child.His father cried for a year after this loss and eventually died of grief himself.
Wanda remained to live, but, in my opinion, a trace remained in her behavior forever. Rather, she is crying somewhere in her soul, although the smile on her face does not disappear.
I have a version that young priests who get to work in Makeyevka automatically become the subject of her care, as if we were her sons.
As it was said, she constantly complains about her ailments, but she does not stop praying for our health.
It sometimes seems that she is a holy fool, that reality does not reach her, but enough to ask her to help her, she immediately undertakes to do it.
At my request, she brought several family photos.
She is already over 80, but her face is fresh and pleasant.
I lost my dad’s photo, but her grandmother, sisters and a Polish soldier who was not condemned to become Wanda’s spouse, look at me at a distance of many decades, confirming silently that that old world of Wanda’s childhood, according to her words, was indeed beautiful, kind and devout.
She brought these qualities to Donbass from the Grodno region and presented them to our parish.
It is difficult to imagine the morning Mass without Wanda. It is a pity that her stepchildren, orphans, almost never visit the chapel.
True, the youngest lives in Dnepropetrovsk, and supposedly found the right address. Wanda says she likes that parish. The eldest, however, appears once a year, and the grandson born in Donbass was taken to an Orthodox church to be baptized.
Some people say that there is no difference and God is one, but according to our canons, it is allowed for Catholics to go to an Orthodox church, and it is even recommended only if there is no church in the place.He finally appeared in Donbass.
Here is my concern that the Catholic grandmothers, who baptized their children out of need and need for Orthodoxy, would take the trouble to return at least their grandchildren to Catholicism !!!
The longer I talk to Wanda, the more it surprises me.
Recently I started to remember children’s poems in Polish:
U Kisiela konik biały
Do Panienek jedzie śmiały
Kisiel konia nie żałuje,
Tylko co dzień maszeruje 90 konikam
konikam white Kissel Konya has no regrets
Stamps his feet every day …
Once I asked her what color her hair used to be before she turned gray.She suddenly told me the verse:
RYŻY OJCIEC RYŻA MATKA, RYŻA TEŻ MOJA WYBRANKA
RYŻA TEŻ RODZINKA CAŁA, I TEN KSIĄDZ CO ŚLUB NAM DAWAŁ!
FATHER RED, MOTHER RYZHA AND I TAKE RED,
THE WHOLE FAMILY IS OUR RYZHA, RED POP I WED!
When I praised her for having a good memory, she objected with the following words:
Pili wódkę pili
Aż nieszpory opuścili
I nieszpory nie w pamięci
Kiedy wódka głowę kręci.
We drank vodka we drank
We missed the evening prayer service
And the prayer service is useless
When vodka is spinning its forehead
It turns out that she has a better memory than she herself thought. I criticized her jokingly that she was talking a lot in vain and then I heard the answer:
Nie ma takiej chusty, żeby zawiązać komu usty!
There is no handkerchief to tie my mouth!
3. YUZEFA SYTNIK PLESKACH
The parishioners called Mrs. Józef a “press secretary” because she loved to walk in the shadows behind the priest.There was no need to ask her, she herself knew that the priest constantly had dirty shoes and a car. She willingly took on these little worries. When I was away, she remained to guard the chapel. She was not very fond of vagrants, and was always harsh with them. However, at my request, I fed them. And all that was left went to the neighbour’s cats and dogs. Yuzia liked to put on the mask of a tough uncompromising person. This is probably because fate did not spare her. Her parents died in the 1930s as a result of the repression.She perfectly remembers the Holodomor, from which her own grandmother saved her, who replaced her parents. To my surprise, in spite of everything, Yuzia knows an uncountable number of songs, poems and anecdotes. I managed to record some of her favorite compositions: for example, generous in her own composition and in a special dialect:
Generous, generous, generous
Yak began to fill in
Thanks to the Lord
Give the goods
Get up cleaning two cows
Smells on whips
And those whips are not good
Yak will be a penny
Ati are not a penny
There is a hazyayka chornobrova.
Yuzia loved to accompany me during Christmas carols, and taught me a rhyme that started caroling:
“And you carols, draw your hands, throw off your hats and say: GOD GIVE!”
I am grateful to her for the song dedicated to the Baptism of the Lord:
Oh on the ritsi on Khardan
Hallow the water, for three wounds
Hardan bottling water
Pid him ice sia zalama
Father of the horse napuvak,
Not ma179 to whom іshli ryatuvati,
And my friend, chuє, chuє
Along the way, altogether ryatuє
And the bunk for the little bit,
And Mikola for the handle…
For Santa Claus, she learned in childhood a rhyme dedicated to Stalin:
“We have a poem about Lenin. which, in due time, she could have thundered into prison:
Stone on stone
Brick on Brick
Our Lenin Volodya Ilyich died
Lies on the table
Sorry for the workers
It is also a pity for me
Yuzia worked all her life as a plaster -painter.She did this work in our chapel, regardless of her age, sometimes I told her that this was not a woman’s business (at least in Poland I didn’t meet women doing such hard work). She translated my words as a joke:
“I am a cow, I am a bull, I am a woman and a man.”
Her husband, the miner Anton, was a strict spouse. However, in spite of everything, for the last eight years, Yuzia has been babysitting him like a child, flawlessly serving her paralyzed husband. Together they raised three daughters, two of whom live in Makeevka, and the third in Kaliningrad, Russia.Yuzi had a dream that her daughters would start the Sacrament of Wedding. Once in 2004, during Christmas carols at the apartment of our eldest daughter in the late evening, we managed to get the whole family – children and grandchildren – together and marry the first of three couples. During the interview and the feast that followed that evening, I managed to get another couple interested in the topic of the wedding. Just a few months before, Yuzi’s granddaughter Victoria found herself a nice friend named Roman, and it was clear that the young couple was not indifferent to this topic.Yuza is 75 years old, but looking at her, you can safely give her 15 years less. The secret lies, most likely, in her religious practices. She is a truly zealous parishioner, for whom there is no more interesting activity in life than praying. While preparing this chapter, I asked Yuzia for a photograph of her parents, and then, unexpectedly, Yuzia got angry. She really was a hot-tempered woman, and did not hesitate to say to me:
“I love you, the stench died so quickly, but I don’t remember” …
In her understanding, I should have guessed that she had there is nothing left.However, after a couple of weeks, in great confidence, she happily handed me a photograph of my grandmother, which also had my mother. During the editing of the text, several unexpected events occurred for us, parishioners, and for Yuzi herself.
In the spring of 2006, we learned that Benedict the 16th would have to visit Poland, and that several buses with pilgrims would have to leave our diocese by that time, the purpose of their journey is not only to meet the pontiff, but also to make a pilgrimage to To the miraculous icon of the Mother of God of Czestochowa in gratitude for the travel of its copy through our diocese.I agitated all the parishioners, however, I established the principle that mainly elderly people who have never been to Poland in their life will go to Czestochowa. It was not an easy task to persuade grandmothers to go to different institutions in order to make a passport. Thank God, the consul from Kharkov met us halfway, who undertook to pay off all expenses in this regard. Some grandmothers managed to get a passport at a reduced rate. To my surprise and joy, Yuzyu did not have to persuade. After the pilgrimage, she looked 10 years younger.In the summer of 2006, renovations were carried out in our parish house. I did not have time to complete it, as I had to leave for treatment. Leaving for China, I asked the parishioners to help the priest who came to my place from Slovakia. Yuzia immediately managed to make friends with Father Alexander, and every time he was absent, she still guarded the entire parish, until my return. In December, there was little time left to complete the renovation, but the Lord gave good weather, and we managed to do everything. In those days, Yuzia used to plaster and paint all the rooms of the parish house until late.She came back so late that sometimes the eldest daughter reproached me on the phone that my grandmother could not work so much. Apparently, she knew her mother better. Yuzia did not even show that it was hard for her. At Christmas, along with several women who helped me with the renovation, she stayed overnight to celebrate the holiday in a brand new home. At this evening, Yuzia was as happy as a little girl – she laughed, sang and danced. It was impossible to think that in three days our mistress would be gone.Yuzia died on Friday. I was greatly disturbed not only by the very fact of death, which I could not comprehend, but also by the fact that Yuzi’s children had planned a funeral for Sunday. It seemed to me at first that I would not be able to carry out the ceremony, given that at one o’clock, when the funeral is usually held, I had to get to Torez for New Year’s Mass, which could not be canceled. Despite all the obstacles, we agreed to hold the funeral ceremony at the morning service, so that not only I could participate in it, but all the parishioners.Father Richard, a priest from Donetsk, also agreed to attend the farewell Mass. All the relatives appeared together on the ninth day and promised that we would see you again on the fortieth day. During these two informal meetings, we agreed that we would not interrupt the tradition and that Christmas carols would continue to be held in Yuzi’s apartment, which the granddaughter inherited. I got to her renovated house on the day of the Meeting of the Lord. The weather was amazing – exactly the same as three years ago when I married Vika’s parents. A strong blizzard filled up many trees that day.My car froze to the ground so much that I had to go to the carols by minibus. I was very surprised how much Yuzi’s house had changed. Vika and her husband Roman, with the help of Yuzi, carried out a real renovation. However, not everything was finished. In some of the rooms I could see the well-known strokes of putty, which were applied vigorously by a diligent parishioner. Only now it dawned on me that on Christmas Eve Hughes had to fight on two fronts: in the afternoon she was repairing the parish house, and in the evening, on the second round, she was doing the same work in her apartment, where Victoria and her husband were quietly moving.
During the Christmas carols we had time to discuss a lot of things, and although all the people who gathered this time were only “correspondence parishioners”, however, Yuzi’s presence and her character were clearly felt. All her relatives agreed with me that Yuzia was stubborn and wayward. They also confirmed that Yuzia dreamed and asked them to visit the chapel, even offended that no one listened to her requests. And now, it seems that to some extent, after her death, she achieved what she could not achieve during her lifetime.
4. NINELLI BENIAMINOVA
Ninelli lives on the corner of Ostrovsky and Nadezhda Krupskaya streets, together with a cat and a dog. Her house is well located not far from the Youth Theater, the Main Post Office and the Red Bazaar. At one time, Father Vladimir wanted to buy out this household from her as a chapel. Ninelli is Assyrian by nationality, although her husband was considered one of the richest residents of Makeyevka, only a house that had not been renovated for decades remained in his legacy. Ninelli lives in extreme poverty, but often brings the priests to the chapel, because after the death of her only son, she has no closer people left.When we first met, she told me that in age and appearance I reminded her of her late son. The old Georgian passport, with which Ninelli came to bury her husband, has long expired. Ninelli does not have enough money to make a new passport. Thus, she remains a stateless person. Her ancestors lived in Iran, her parents, as a result of the repression that Christians are constantly subjected to in Muslim countries, moved to live in the capital of Georgia, Tbilisi. Ninelli has two brothers left alive: the elder Ardo, who works as a director in the circus, and the middle Albert, the postman.Both brothers moved to live in Moscow. The middle sister stayed to live in Tbilisi. Ninelli is the youngest. She was born in 1934. Her family lived in a one-room apartment. Ninelli recalls that her childhood was cold and hungry. Knowing that Georgia has a warm climate, I was a little surprised. Ninelli, however, explained that in the winter people heat their homes with wood. Her parents were so poor that they could not buy them.
Her dad George was a painter and liked to drink too much. Mom Shakar was very kind to children, and so religious that she never let go of her rosary.They had many prayer books at home. But rather, no one went to the church, because the Stalinist regime was raging. The parents kept the children in strict order. When asked when and where she was baptized, Ninelli hesitated a little, but said that she remembers how, at the age of ten, her parents took her to the only Catholic church in Tbilisi, which was located on Plekhanov Street. She says that it was in this church that she met her husband Shmuil. He came from Makeyevka to rest in a sanatorium in the city of Tskhaultube.Having met relatives in Tbilisi, he admitted that although he is very wealthy, he wants to take a poor but hardworking girl from Georgia as his wife. Relatives advised him to get to know Ninelli. They arranged the betrothal for the young, according to the Assyrian canons, they slaughtered a lamb, arranged a large feast and sent the young to Makeyevka. It was 1957. The start was optimistic. The couple lived in perfect harmony. However, according to Ninelli’s stories, Shmuil had a lot of love. Easily and often cheated on his wife. This was probably aided by the money he earned abundantly as a dentist.Meanwhile, the boy Alexander was born, and when the child was five years old, his father unexpectedly kicked both of them out of the house. Ninelli has been married for only eight years. All these years Ninelli worked as a saleswoman in a bookstore near the executive committee. After four years of separation from his father, nine-year-old Sasha returned to Ukraine to his dad. He studied poorly, dad cared little about him, and Sasha was used to saying: “Dad has his own company, I have my own.” The son corresponded with his mother, and spent all the holidays with her. After finishing his studies, he took up boxing.There he found a company he shouldn’t have joined. He ended up in prison, and after leaving there, he began to imitate dad in everything. He began to drink heavily, wasted on many women, but did not connect his fate with one. After the death of dad, Sasha inherited a lot of money, but they did not stay with him.
One day someone from his company beat him so badly that his liver ruptured, which led to his premature death.
Once I found a tramp at home at Ninelli’s.Ninelli explained to me that this is a former friend of Sasha, who at one time was the champion of Ukraine in boxing. For several more years this comrade wandered through the streets of our city, useless, always drunk and hungry. But he also suffered the same fate as Alexandra. They suddenly remembered about the prematurely deceased champion. And Ninelli told me that the athletes of our city gave him a magnificent funeral. Ninelli is not shy about being friends with vagabonds. Sometimes she says about herself: “I am also a homeless woman.” In spite of poverty, her favorite pastime is shopping.The second “hobby” is the church. Ninelli does not see the difference between Catholics, Orthodox or Protestants, she gladly attends all the festive meetings, at which she speaks with pleasure, if only she was given the floor. She, too, is on duty in the parish without fail and feeds the poor when I ask her about it. Some of the parishioners shun Ninelli. The reason, probably, is that most of our “Polish” grandmothers do not realize to what extent our Catholic Church is universal. Sometimes it seems to them that Catholicism is the “Polish faith”.And they are perplexed by what routes the “Georgian” came to us. Ninelli doesn’t like it when someone calls her Georgian, or when they shorten her name, calling her Nina. She is proud of her Assyrian roots and, it should be noted that she is a literate person and it is sometimes useful to communicate with her. Loneliness led her to the fact that she willingly talks with any person who has “free ears.”
After thirty years of absence, Ninelli returned to Ukraine, having inherited a 4-room house from her late husband.Ninelli has very stylish furniture, she gave several beautiful armchairs to our chapel. In one of the rooms, Ninelli set up something like a museum, in which clothes and photographs of her son lie as exhibits. Ninelli comes to this room as to a mausoleum, and when Christmas carols pass, she becomes pleased that I am conducting memorial prayers in this room. Ninelli remembers many Assyrian prayers, songs and poems, since the Assyrian dialect is similar to the Aramaic language that Jesus Christ spoke, it is curious to have such a parishioner, about whom we can conditionally say that she is a distant relative of the apostles.Not all people know that the so-called Chaldeans, about whom we find news in the Old Testament, were considered the first and best missionaries of Christianity in the first centuries of Christianity. They also brought Christianity to India, Tibet and China. Back in the days when Europeans never dreamed of sending their missionaries there.
Ninelli is already over 70, but she often repeats that in her heart she considers herself young. Perhaps that is why she dictated the following song to me:
Czu leleli la czy tha
Bił ma li tra tu than
Harbe spalen al.De ze tah
Al. De gnetet szim szane
Biuta bi to ja hlyta
I didn’t sleep all night,
I won’t calm down in the afternoon –
I’m waiting to meet you
After all, love wins.
5. LYUDMILA PRITULA
On Rebfakovskaya Street, which runs parallel to Lenin Street, my parishioner Lusya and her husband Anatoly live in abundance, quietly working. Lucy visits the chapel on Mondays. She spends all the other days of the week in the market – she sells vegetables and every time she brings some of her products to the parish, but does not leave empty-handed: on the way back she takes my dirty clothes from the parish.She is proud to have an automatic washing machine in her home. In 2005, for several weeks, desperate that there were no people willing to work on the construction of the chapel, I went on a hunger strike. Upon learning of this, Lusya led the hand of Oleg, the wife of her youngest daughter, whom she allowed to be absent from the market and help Yaroslav. She then had to work for two. Oleg spent several weeks at the construction site. Mainly, he built the turret frame and all other welding-related work with his hands.Other men followed him, and construction got off the ground.
Lyusya is a short woman with a round face and an everlasting smile. Once she underwent a stomach operation, after which half of this organ remained. Perhaps that is why she treats every problem with understanding. She grew up in the Khmelnytsky region in the village of Turchintsy, near the town of Podolsk. Her dad’s name was Aloiziy. She really likes this middle name, but when she moved to live in Donbass, she was constantly teased “Aleizievna”.
Spouse Aloisia, that is, mother Lucy’s name was Mil. Both parents were the same age and lived for about the same number of years. Dad died a little later.
They raised four children.
The elder’s name was Emilia. She worked in Turchintsy on a collective farm, collecting sugar beets. One day, the trunk lid hit her so hard that it permanently damaged her kidneys. As a result, my sister died soon after.
Lucy has a pair of twins, Brother Joseph, who lives in Khmelnitsky, and Leonid’s sister, who moved to live in Makeevka.Lucy’s mom was very strict and sometimes beat her kids. Dad had “golden hands”. As a carpenter, he made boards from large logs. Lucy says that he was very handsome in character and appearance. He adds, not yet boldly, but jokingly, that she is very similar to him. Dad was wounded in the war, and fragments of a bullet remained in the muscles of his arm. In his old age, dad went to the hospital, and a nurse, giving an injection, accidentally got into a stuck splinter, which led to gangrene and death from blood poisoning.Lucy visited him in the hospital and, not feeling that something was wrong, returned to Makeyevka. The telegram about the death of the pope overtook him on the way. Once in Makeevka, she had to urgently find herself in Makeevka.
The eldest daughter Alla lives in Makeyevka, on Michurin Street and is raising her son Denis on her own. Alla’s husband suffered from alcoholism and against this background he died gravely. He grew up in Belarus and once decided to visit his native places. On the way with nm there was an attack of delirium tremens. He managed to get off at the right stop, but he never made it to his parents’ house.Familiar people recognized the corpse of a young man lying in a field.
The youngest daughter’s name is Lyudmila. Her husband Oleg, who was already mentioned, in the first years of his marriage, greatly upset his family. He worked at the metallurgical plant and drank incessantly. He told me about it himself as a kind of nightmare. Oleg had such a strong will that he got out of this illness on his own, promising himself and his family that this would never happen again. There are three passions in his life that he probably will never give up: cigarettes, work and family.I guess the third passion is the strongest. Oleg has a very nice wife and two heroic boys. Oleg’s appearance is difficult to judge about his nationality – he is red-haired and thin. He grew up in Azerbaijan, but fled from there like a Russian. Although, in my opinion, German blood also flows in his veins. At least he is a very disciplined and really hardworking person. his parents now live in Adygea – not far from Krasnodar and Maykop. Every summer he spends a couple of weeks there with his children and his wife, and often also grabs his beloved mother-in-law so that she can sunbathe in the Kuban sun.
6. CAESARIA OF BISKUP
There was a time when Mrs. Tsezya visited the chapel every day. Recently, however, she began to lose her memory and appetite. From the formerly magnificent woman, only a trembling skeleton remained. Sometimes, taking advantage of the kindness of Mrs. Wanda, a Catholic neighbor who is a year younger than Tsezi, but has the opportunity to come to the church, Ms. Tsezya would convey to me an invitation to confess her. After each of my visits, Tsezya uttered the “duty” phrase: “How much I miss the Church!” During the last carols, Mrs. Tsezya did not understand who I was and asked a couple of times if I had come to Makeyevka forever.Her memory was deteriorating rapidly. An interview about her life had to be conducted with Mrs Tamara, the wife of Tsezi’s nephew, who took care of his childless aunt. I will say right away that during the editing and translation of the text, Ms. Tsezya passed away, which means that this text is a farewell story.
Caesaria was born in the village of Treski, Antoninsky district, Khmelnytsky region. Her parents, Bronislav and Anna, nee Stashevskaya. Tsezya is the youngest of eight children. Dad was engaged in cattle, mother was raising children.
Tsezya recruited to Donbass after the war. She was an office worker at the Makeyevka Metallurgical Plant, and then at a mine. Judging by the photographs, even by her aristocratic appearance, preserved until the last moments, she was a beautiful and intelligent woman. Naturally, it is surprising why such a woman did not find herself a mate. Pani Tamara explains this in such a way that Tsezya has always been a wayward, domineering and capricious person. She did not recognize any power over herself, loved to freely dispose of her time, traveled a lot.Having no children of her own, she diligently “engaged in philanthropy” in relation to her numerous nephews from the village. She spent a lot of money and time helping her older brothers and sisters in raising their children. Pani Tamara told me that one of Tsezi’s nieces died in a car accident at an early age. Tsezia took this event as her personal tragedy.
For seven years Ciezia studied at an elementary school in Poland. She had a collection of old Polish prayer books at home. One of them – probably the memory of the First Communion – Tsezya keeps with him in his pocket.One recollection, however, I managed to hear from Tsezi personally. Interrupting Tamara’s story, she confirmed that the parents were very affectionate with each other. Dad called his wife “Detino”. Tsezya recalls about her mother that she was very worried about her sons, who worked hard on the farm with the “Pan”. They did not have their own land then. Although the family lived in Ukraine, everyone spoke Polish at home, and Tsezya learned the first Ukrainian word with the onset of Soviet power. A shepherd settled in their village, who used to swear heavily.Tsezya quickly memorized a few words and began to use them in the presence of the pope – apparently, not fully understanding their meaning. Dad did not become indignant and calmly explained to the girl that she should learn Ukrainian, but it is advisable to start her studies with more cultural expressions.
Pani Tamara told me that the parents were so poor that they did not even have their own home. They built it only under Soviet rule.
As a child, Cesi’s mother instilled in her a passion for yellow cheese. She explained to the girl that only wealthy people eat such a dish.Until the last day, yellow cheese remained Cesi’s favorite dish. Tsezia told me that every day at their home began with a family morning prayer. Until everyone read it together, no one dared to sit down at the table.
Tsezya also remembers how during the famine years snails became the main food. She also remembers that her dad was very swollen from hunger. Tsezya remembers that she suffered terribly from hunger, but did not touch the snails.
She died at the age of two, on the first Thursday in September. I was supposed to go to her on the first Friday, but it turned out that it was on that day, for the first time in the last three years, that Tsezya “came” to me.
The fact is that, while stipulating the terms and details related to the burial of the old woman, I suggested that Pani Tamara bring the body of the deceased to the chapel. So her desire was fulfilled – to be always in the chapel. A large number of parishioners accompanied her at the ceremony.
7. VANDA BONDAR
Pani Wanda is adjacent to Mrs. Maria Genevich. In Makeyevka this area is called “Three-five” by the locals. It is not far from the main thoroughfare of the city – Lenin Street. There are mostly tall houses along the street, but a little deeper in the courtyards there are a large number of private buildings.Ms. Wanda also has her own house and a couple of kitchen gardens.
She lived a difficult life in Kolyma on the border of the Magadan region with Yakutia. Nobody sent her there – she herself fled there from her cruel husband. According to her, she missed Ukraine a lot, which is why she returned. However, now, remembering the places where her young years passed, she misses the virgin nature.
She was born in the village of Lopatechi, Shargorod district, Vinnytsia region. Her dad Vyacheslav, a veterinarian, was a devout man, but sickly.He died of massive cerebral hemorrhage at the age of forty-six. Ganna’s mom was a milkmaid. The parents had no children besides her.
Wanda was not married for long. She had a son, whom she took with her to the Far East. Now an adult son lives in St. Petersburg.
The mother’s brother with his daughter Nina, long before her flight, settled in Kolyma, and it was to him that she went at the time of her flight.
In the early 80s, Mrs. Wanda met her current husband Anatoly.For him, this is also a second marriage. Anatoly and Wanda have no common children. Since Wanda did not get married in her first marriage, she gladly accepted my proposal to marry Anatoly. It was during the carols of 2004 that we raised this issue, and in May a ceremony at home took place. The only witness of the event from among the parishioners was the late Mrs. Józefa, a neighbor and friend of Wanda. Having settled in Makeevka, Wanda brought her elderly mother to her place. They live together.
Wanda has two other girlfriends who are very close to her.One of them is Orthodox, originally from the same Shargorodsky region, worked together with Wanda in the Far East, and together with her she settled in the neighborhood in Makeyevka. No wonder Wanda always invites her to carols. Another neighbor, a Baptist by faith, joins us. Thus, Wanda’s carols are dragging on a lot. Wanda’s friends are very kind and curious, and I have to answer numerous questions and listen to many interesting stories. Our Orthodox friend’s name is Olga.She looks a lot like Wanda – both of them are plump women with a pleasant expression on their faces. Olga’s own daughter remained to live in Siberia, specifically, in Chelyabinsk, that is, in the Urals. A Baptist neighbor, I think Irina is the most talkative woman in this society. Her ancestors from the Oryol province in 1935 were repressed for their religious beliefs in the Urals, in the vicinity of Tyumen. She defines her religious group as “Mark Baptists.” When I asked if there were still Baptists from John and Matthew, she answered in the affirmative.In the Urals, Irina had to face the Old Believers, whom the local population calls “cheldans”. The local community of “cheldans” did not have a priest, but I will. Irina says that she visited once and received candy from her. She was even allowed to sit in a corner on a special stool designed for the Gentiles. Priadya also treated Irina to a mug of water. It turns out that the mug was also special – the owners of the house do not touch it. The Old Believers, according to Irina, are very careful with people who do not belong to the Old Believer community.Irina says that, in turn, the Baptists adopted many of their prejudices from the Old Believers. For example, they shook off the dust, and carefully washed all the objects that the Old Believers touched. Irina and I also talked about culinary topics. She learned in Siberia to bake larks from unleavened dough. She also knows the recipe for fish pies, which are baked on fermented dough in the Urals. In addition to larks, a local specialty is a dough called pie. There are two holes at the ends of this product.
Wanda’s mom is also always actively involved in our conversations. While Wanda was fussing about organizing a tea party, her mother once told me that Wanda had measles as a child.
Wanda got her first job in the village of Strizhevka. It was work in the kitchen. In the Far East, as well as upon returning to Makeyevka, she continued to work in the same capacity. When I asked Wanda for the happiest day of her life, she admitted that she had been wandering around the barracks for many years, and one day such a day came when she got an apartment in a high-rise building.
The most terrible day in her life is when her minor son Sasha got lost in the taiga. They lived in a village 800 km from Magadan and 400 km from Yakutsk. The young man rode a moped 40 km deep into the forest. The motorcycle broke down, and not wanting to leave it there, Sasha dragged it for a whole day. To report this, and to call for help, he had no opportunity.
At parting, Wanda dictated to me two Ukrainian Christmas rhymes:
Little Isusik not to sleep, not sleeping,
With her own hands, the whole world is enveloped.
І in your khatin, і your homeland
Christ is born.
Nekhai new rik
To cross your threshold,
Hai bring you at the hut
Hai health povniy mіkh
Let you pay for it.
8. MARIA GENEVICH-LESHCHIK
The story about Mary is a continuation and addition to the story of Irina Moiseenko. They are two sisters who grew up in the Postavy district of the former Molodechny region in Belarus. They were born in those years when Postavy was the territory of Poland.Naturally, both of them graduated from Polish schools and are fluent in Polish. During the war, the following incident took place. The parents sent Maria to pick a bag of grass. She, however, climbed a tall tree and decided to make fun of her sister Irina. Waiting until she passed the tree, Maria pretended to be a cuckoo. Irina looked up, and when she saw her sister, she said: “Look, cuckoo, or else you’ll fall!” These words became prophetic, although Maria was also an athletic girl, she could not resist on a branch and fell on her back so hard that she lay motionless, and had to call for help.The cousin together with her mother took Maria home in their arms. And it took some time before Mary came to her senses.
This childhood memory very clearly demonstrates the difference in the behavior of these two sisters: Irina is calm, balanced, and Maria is unpredictable. Maria found a spouse similar to her in character, and when we met on carols, we spent time talking about him. Only at the end of the interview, Maria admitted that her marriage was late. The tragedy that happened in 1950 became the reason for the slowness.Maria even remembers the day and month. On October 1, she lost her first lover, with whom she was engaged. His name was Cheslav. He studied in Postavy at the courses of drivers. He promised Mary that he would visit her every Saturday. Once, a couple of days before the exams, an acquaintance of Cheslav’s invited him to a wedding. Cheslav did not know anyone among the guests, so he sat quietly next to the musician playing the accordion. Surprisingly, a group of young men did not like this, who invited him to talk in the corridor and severely beat him.In the area of the left ear, they cut his skull to the brain. This guy’s mom treated Maria like a daughter. She took the grief-stricken girl with her for walks to Vilnius. Meanwhile, Cheslav’s younger brother Stanislav began to look after Maria, but she did not want to communicate with anyone. She was in deep despair. She worked at the time in a peat factory and rode her bike there every day. It was then that a thought settled in her heart to flee from this unfortunate village and forget her grief.Such a case appeared only seven years later. A guy named Victor took her away. He was from Kiev, but his ancestors were from the village of Karpovichi, Postavy district. He was five years older than Maria, spent the war in forced labor in Germany, and when he returned, he found himself in bad company, as a result of which he ended up in jail. While in prison, he once managed to steal the keys from the guard and release his comrades in misfortune. He had a short term, but after such an act, he was added another 10 years.
After 10 years of being released, he lost his Kiev residence permit, despite the fact that his dad had a general’s rank. It was not possible to alleviate the fate of his prodigal son. Father advised Viktor to go to the homeland of his ancestors to his Belarusian relatives, and settle there. Viktor Aum’s mother, Latvian by birth, raised an inferior daughter, which means that fate did not spare the trouble in this family. It seemed that through the acquaintance with Maria, all bad things would become a thing of the past. On the advice of his father, Victor came to Belarus and, after a few days in the Postavy region, he saw Maria dancing.Seeing for the first time, he immediately told his relatives that he was going to marry her. It was love at first sight. Maria finally felt that this “city guy” would take her out of the village to his place. Soon they got married. After the registry office, they left for Lithuania in the border area of Galyuchishki and will get married in a local church. Victor was in no way suited to country life. He never imagined what a collective farm was and did not have the necessary skills. Whatever he undertook, caused ridicule. At the same time, Maria Stanislav’s friend left for Donbass and was very pleased with her decision.Maria and Victor, however, decided to show up in Kiev and try to settle down there. Seeing the young couple, Victor’s father did not hide his displeasure. He wanted young people to live in Belarus. However, they remained in Kiev and for a month unsuccessfully tried to get a residence permit. Realizing that they would not be able to achieve anything, they went to the Donbass to Stanislav. Stanislava, meanwhile, married Ivan Pesin. Victor had no difficulty in finding their address. The young couple turned out to be very hospitable and allowed Maria and Victor to live with them for so long until they found a job and a place to live.They had a lot of things with them. Maria was three months pregnant. In 1958, their first-born daughter Valentina was born. They had to move from one apartment to another three times, until they finally got a prestigious apartment on Lenin Street, not far from the Gutovsky crossroads. It was 1961. It was then that Maria invited her sister Irina to her place. She, in turn, took her widowed mother to Donbass. In 1963, his son Yuri was born. Maria had to raise her granddaughter Natasha, who, having given birth to her son Leva, gave him to her great-grandmother for upbringing.Maria quite often comes with Leva to the chapel, and this eight-year-old boy managed to act as a minister several times.
Maria and Victor worked their entire lives at a metallurgical plant. During the practice, Maria suffered an injury and lost one finger. The husband, in turn, became an alcoholic. Maria believes that they lived their lives loving each other. And only the alcoholism of her husband muffled the joy of their couple. They did not lose hope of returning to Kiev and dreamed about it. Their plans were thwarted by the sudden and simultaneous death of both of Victor’s parents.Victor was never able to get a residence permit, which means he could inherit his parents’ apartment, which he always really wanted.
The youngest son of Maria Yuri inherited his paternal illness. He works as a welder and during the years when father Richard was in Makeyevka, he became very friendly with him, and made a beautiful metal decorative fence around our yard. Maria strongly wanted me to make friends with Yuri. I tried, but apparently not destined.
9. IRENA MOISEENKO-LESHCHIK
Pani Irena was born on Christmas day, comes from the Belarusian village of Rudevichi, Postavy district, former Molodechno region (now Vitebsk region).Irena went to the church for 7 kilometers on horse-drawn carriage, she studied catechesis before the first communion on weekdays. She had to go to these classes on foot or by bicycle in the town of Luchai. The parents were very devout, every morning dad sang Godinky in Polish (a psalter in honor of Mary). Christmas was solemnly celebrated, hay was put on the table under the tablecloth at home, and festive dishes, including kutya and a Christmas wafer, were placed on the tablecloth. Since that part of Belarus belonged to Poland before the war, Mrs. Irena completed two classes of elementary Polish school.Religion at the school was taught by a sister, a nun, in this class there was an icon of the Mother of God. Pani Irena recalls how they sewed her a festive dress for the first communion, she says that her seamstress was lame, but the best specialist in the city. All lessons at school began with prayer. Her parents were farmers, had their own plot of 7 hectares of land, a horse, two cows and twenty sheep. They used to keep another pig, which was meant for Christmas as a delicacy.As a child, Irina helped her parents to graze sheep. About 40 families lived in the village of Rudevichi. They all kept sheep. From each family, one person was engaged in grazing sheep, all the sheep were gathered into one flock, and the attendant raised them in the fields, thus, the watch dropped out about once a month, this indicates that the villagers lived very amicably. Irena will remember grandmother Petronelka and grandfather Tomas. These were the dad’s parents. She also remembers her mother’s parents: grandmother Antonina and grandfather Yakov.Dad was at the front for a long time, and already when they lost hope that he would return, he suddenly appeared. His name was Victor, he was tall, thin and bearded. Genovefa’s mother was short and stern. Once she left Irina at home locked up, closing the doors with a key. Irina did not like this very much and to free herself, she knocked out the glass in the window. She does not hide the fact that her mother punished her severely for this. The Pope, however, was indifferent to this event. Irina was very sick in childhood, she walked with difficulty and mainly on all fours.Having no money for treatment in the hospital, her mother took her to the village of Verateiku to a healer, and he healed her once and for all. Unfortunately, unexpectedly the old disease returns in old age. In addition to problems with walking, Irina complains of cataracts, she is thin as sawdust, poor and lonely. All her life she worked as a plasterer-painter. At work, fate tied her with Mrs. Jozefa, while they worked together under the Soviet Union, they never confessed to each other that they were both Catholics. And only when perestroika began, and Catholics began to meet in the village of Gvardeyka, these two residents of Cheryomushki, at that time already pensioners, met with surprise again.She moved to Donbass from Belarus at the invitation of her younger sister Maria. Maria introduced Irina to her future husband, Victor. Victor was three years younger than Irina, so she did not immediately decide to marry this man, however, she does not regret it. Her husband was a graduate of a technical school, so he impressed an illiterate girl with his education. He worked in the profession of a locksmith. Irina dreamed of a church marriage, she says that it was also her husband’s dream, however, in Donbass at that time there was no such opportunity. Fate did not give them children either.Among the positive qualities of Victor, Irina lists his devotion, he completely trusted his wife, in particular, she had all the family money. At Irina’s request, he quit smoking, however, he could not say goodbye to the bottle. He died very early at the age of 62, in 1996. It was a tragic death. Tragedy played out at Christmas. The drunken man, together with his nephew Yuri, was picked up on the street by the police. According to the surviving Yuri, who was thrown out of the car by the police earlier, both were severely beaten.Victor was found dead near the hospital. Doctors tried to save the man, however, as a result of severe beatings, he died. He was in a state of agony for 10 days, he understood everything, made timid movements with his foot and palm, but he could not say anything.
10. DEONISIA VERMINSKAYA-KUTSEMIR
Pani Deonisia or, as the locals say, Desya, comes from the village of Morozov, Dunevets district, Khmelnytsky region. During the Christmas carols, Mrs. Desya opened up to me so much that her story seemed to me the most extensive of all interviews.I got a lot of old photographs from her, a real treasure – a treasure of memories. The native village is located on the border with Moldova. In Mrs. Desi’s facial features, a mixture of several nations can be discerned and predictable. At the first meeting, it seemed to me that she was Armenian. Some people said that she was Tatar, however, listening carefully to her story, I made sure that all her ancestors were pure-blooded Poles and deeply religious Catholics. It is enough to look at the names and surnames of her ancestors, both from the side of her mother and her dad.The father’s village Zinkov is located in the neighboring Vinkovets district, also in the Khmelnytsky region. It was there, at the age of 7, right after the war, that little Desia was baptized. For this occasion, my grandmother made a fashionable dress for her. Pani Desia told me about her grandfather, who was an excellent specialist in carpentry and blacksmithing, that he was the victim of a crime. The murderers of my grandfather turned out to be local blacksmiths of Jewish origin, for whom an experienced craftsman created unwanted competition.Grandfather’s name was Vladislav. The tragedy that happened to him took place in 1919. Desi’s orphaned dad was then only 7 years old. Genovefa’s widowed grandmother lived for 90 years and raised another orphan, the son of Viktor, who was only three years old at the time of the tragedy. The third child, a girl named Hanzia, died quite recently. Uncle Victor lives to this day, but has completely lost his memory. Desi’s mother’s parents: Adam and Karolina Vrublevsky had two daughters: Vinya and Anela, as well as a son, Victor. It was Anela who was condemned to become Desi’s mother.Desi had three more brothers: Vladik, Wilhelm and Felix. Vladik was born in 35, Wilhelm died when he was only a year old. The youngest Felix was born at 48. Desia says about his dad that he had a father-in-law, Adam, whom the Soviet authorities sentenced to 2 years in prison for hiding an animal’s skin under the stove during the famine. All the relatives were poor and barefoot, so the father-in-law dreamed of making shoes for children from this skin. This is not the only example of coercive and inhuman relations established by the authorities in relation to the starving collective farmers.At the same time, a distant relative of Desi, seeing the festive decorations on the occasion of May 1st or some other Soviet holiday, criticized in the presence of several acquaintances that he did not like the decorations. Someone “knocked him on, such an innocent crime was enough for a person to be sent into exile and, moreover, forever. Grandpa Adam, after serving time in prison, went straight to the war, presumably in a penal battalion. Desi’s narrative was supplemented by the eagerly mutilated husband of Petro. This man’s hand was torn off at the factory many years ago.I guess that Petro is the second spouse of Mrs. Desi, however, both of them grew up in the same region and know perfectly well their own destinies and all close and distant relatives. Pan Petro, who worked for many years at the Makeyevka Metallurgical Plant, is one of the few surviving witnesses of the existence and destruction of the Makeevsky Church, which, according to many sources, was located on the territory of the Metallurgical Plant. The tragedy of losing an arm occurred when Peter was only 21 years old.When he met Dyza, he was already 37. Pani Desya was ten years younger than her second husband, they had a son. When Peter was 12 years old, his dad went to the front. He died in the vicinity of Kharkov, which means that Petro did not see his dad anymore. In the meantime, my mother was gone. She left for unknown reasons to the Far East. She settled near Ussuriisk on the Chinese border, on Lake Khanka. There, presumably, she created a new family and also never returned. The orphaned Peter was brought up with his brother by an elderly grandfather.During the war, this kind man, in addition to two minor children, took into his house an unfortunate girl of Jewish origin by the name of Ferdman – Korendlit. Petro says that Lyudmila was very beautiful and, probably, her grandfather decided to marry her to her grandson after the war. It was very difficult to hide Jews during these years, as the Germans occupying the country set a high reward for every Jew they found. The established tariffs were a great temptation for the starving Ukrainians.On the other hand, however, those who did not become tempted by money and hid Jews were threatened with the death penalty upon exposure. The cunning grandfather, in order to avoid trouble, explained to the neighbors that the third child who appeared at his home was just a niece from a distant village. Everyone believed him, no one began to hand over grandfather to the Germans. Thus, the life of the beauty was saved. After the war, Lyudmila received a law degree and successfully crossed over to live in the United States. Living richly, she decided to thank the surviving relatives of Peter.Since the grandfather died at the age of 96, the traditional title of “Just among the nations” in such cases went to Peter. This title is assigned to all people of any country in the world who saved Jews during the Nazi era. Instead of a monument to such people, they plant a named tree in Israel in the Yad Vashem park. The just among the nations receive a medal, small allowances and even the right to settle in Israel. Sometimes Petro jokes that he will go there if Desya’s grandmother treats him badly. In the house of Peter and Desi, I could see old two-hundred-year-old collections of Polish hymns and an even older yellowed Bible in the first translation into Polish by Jakub Wujk.These things are priceless. Pani Desia admitted that this is only part of the family collection, since she donated some books to priests. It should be added that the “clan” of Mrs. Desi’s relatives numbers many people, and most of them are very loyal to the Makeev parish. Among others, I would like to list the brother of Desi Felix, who lives in the neighborhood. For many years, for good reasons, he did not attend church, knowing about the existence of a chapel in Makeyevka, he did not dare to cross its threshold. He sincerely admits that, being a public figure in the city, he never wanted to attract too much attention and excitement to himself.For him, the church is a purely personal affair. As the editor of a local newspaper, Felix worried that he might fall prey to inappropriate comments. During the Christmas period, however, he annually invites a priest to his house, emphasizing by this that he has not abandoned the faith of his ancestors. Felix raised his son Yaroslav and two daughters, Yana and Alina. During the years of my stay in the parish, Pan Dyza managed to lead my younger brother to three sacraments: confession, communion and wedding. All this took place without publicity, in intimate conditions, according to the wishes of Felix himself.Thus, he gave his sister great pleasure.
11. LYUDMILA JAFAROVA
Pani Lyudmila is the eldest daughter of Pani Desi Kutsemir in her first marriage. Once, during the Christmas carols, Lyudmila, showing her family album, found a photograph of her father and told a little about the fact that he is a Baptist by denomination and now lives in the United States. In her fate, “multi-confessionalism” also manifested itself when choosing a spouse. It turned out to be the Muslim Rabil. She said about the first meeting with her future husband: “Having met me on the bus, Rabel asked:“ Girl, tell me where are you? ” Since Lyudmila did not answer, the young man decided to see for himself what her address was and did not leave her until he noticed where she was going.It should be assumed that the suitor conducted his business confidently and tactfully, since they are married today. Rabile loves his homeland Azeibarjan very much, misses her and tries to constantly communicate with his fellow countrymen, of whom there are many in the Donbass. Rabila has the Koran in his bedroom and tries to read it. Attends all funeral events in the Donetsk mosque, and also illuminates fellow countrymen about their affairs. Once, when the telephone in the parish broke down, I called for the master, he turned out to be a man named, if I am not mistaken, Asher.As it turned out, an acquaintance of Rabila. Asher admitted that he was involved in collecting donations for the complex and expensive operation of Lyudmila’s son, Ramil. The youngest son has a heart defect and had to be taken to a clinic in Kiev several times. Rabile creates the impression of an educated and decent person, it happens, however, that contrary to the instructions of the Koran, he drinks, which greatly upsets Lyudmila. The middle son of Lyudmila and Ramila, named Rustam, was at one time a very active parishioner. He took classes at the “evangelism” school in Dneprodzerzhinsk.The training made such a strong impression on him that during one season, he spent every free minute in our chapel, showing all possible help to the priest. After a while, it was on him that the lot fell on the trip to the city of Cologne. To a youth meeting with Pope Benedict. At one time, Rustam fell deeply in love with a girl of Tatar origin named Dinara. Both of Dinara’s parents are Muslim believers, however, Rustam made Dinara visit our chapel. It is noteworthy that when this union fell apart, Dinara did not stop attending our church and brought the matter to the end, being baptized, and became the wife of another parishioner in the city of Horlivka.Unstable in love, Rustam turned out to be the same in his studies, which caused many tears of maternal and nervous breakdowns of his father. He rarely appears in the parish and, most often, late in the evening, he clearly lacks the first sincerity and spirituality that was observed before. Rustam, like his dad, works as an electrician. Both parents are trying to help him get back on his feet, but only one thing interferes – he himself. Lyudmila successfully works in the market, sometimes she has to shop in Kharkov. These are tiring and risky journeys.Four years ago, one of the buses, which Lyudmila often used, completely burned down, many people died and all the goods that they were transporting from Kharkov to Donbass. Nevertheless, for the sake of her three children and grandchildren, despite numerous illnesses, Lyudmila is ready to suffer any sacrifices. Thanks to her work, the family lives in conditions of average income. Lyudmila baptized all her children in the Catholic Church. Although not without conflicts on this basis. Rabel dreamed that they were Muslims and for this purpose he took them to the mosque to perform the rite of initiation, that is, circumcision.Thanks to Father Vladimir, who had a detailed conversation with Rabil, the wedding took place and there was a lull. It is no secret, however, that noticing crosses on the breasts of his sons, Rabel criticized them. Despite, however, all this, having bought a car, Rabile brings his entire family to the church. It seems that he got used to the presence of Catholics in his family, it is possible that his position was also influenced by the serious illness of his wife and youngest son. Lyudmila has no doubts that by attending church, she protects herself and her son from a worse fate.None of us dreams of Rabiel becoming a Catholic, but I personally watch with great joy his tolerance. Sometimes I conclude for myself that this stern-looking man, in the presence of Lyudmila, becomes soft like a lamb. And for the sake of love for her, he is ready for any deeds. So much for love. Mysterious, unpredictable, overcomes differences in faith, nationality and character of people.
12. NATALIA KHOROSHILOVA
Natalya is the granddaughter of Mrs. Desi Kutsemir and daughter of Lyudmila Jafarova.They live not far from the railway station on the so-called Cheryomushki. Natasha’s first husband was very cruel. His name was Camil. He gave her a sweet son named Ali. He was an entrepreneur and therefore traveled frequently in his commercial van across the country. Once the minibus broke down, and Camille, together with a friend, began to repair it right on the road in some God-forsaken area. At this time, a reckless driver was rushing in their direction at high speed. He did not have time to turn aside and rammed a broken truck.As a result, Kamil, who was standing next to him, suddenly died before he could jump aside.
Natasha remained a widow for several years, but finally, in 2005, she met her age-old and railroad worker Igor. In the life of this guy, a similar scale of tragedy played out. His brother, also a railroad worker, passing along the tracks in the middle of the night, did not notice the slowly moving train, silently turning back. There was another train in front, and at the moment of joining the moving cars with the train standing in place, Igor was between them and also did not have time to jump to the side.Fate united two young men armed in mourning. Both, in my opinion, have a kind and gentle character. Not surprisingly, young people soon got married.
During one conversation with Natalia’s mother, Lyudmila, I realized that the young people will have a child.
Pregnancy, however, did not go smoothly, especially in terms of morality. Natalya suddenly did not like Igor, and forced him to get out to his parents and even decided for herself that she would not give birth to a child.
These threats gripped the entire family with fear.I had night conversations with Igor in order to somehow cheer him up and advised him to take a wait-and-see attitude. Natalia, who had never been to the church, I handed over a note on a touching icon representing Mary mourning the dismembered baby.
This strange little image, however, made the right impression on Natalya, apparently she was just expecting something like this. She needed a timid but decisive push to get back on track.
The child was born in January 2006, when I felt so bad that when it came time to baptize, I performed the ritual sitting, unable to stand.It can be said somehow remotely that the Lord showed us all how he loves a baby, and demanded a sacrifice for his salvation.
It was interesting for me to be present at the ceremony where the baby was given the name Yaroslav and the godfather was also Yaroslav.
In the passport, the child is recorded as Ruslan, but this does not change the essence. Natalya made a very pleasant gesture to me and to herself. I am sure that Igor is crazy about the child, however, like all other relatives.
13. EMILIA RICHEVSKAYA KAPRAN
Pani Milya comes from the village of Korzhovka, Nemirovsky district, Vinnytsia region.It seems, like Mrs. Dusya, was once a housewife in our parish. It seems that then Father Richard was the abbot, and when a crowd of homeless children came to the chapel.
It was she who, on behalf of the rector, had to feed them, wash them, etc.
Even during my reign, the parish had to repeatedly ask someone to spend the night in the parish, and then Mrs. Emilia willingly agreed.
During half a year of my absence, she did not stop cleaning the chapel, although not everyone appreciated her work and, in response to criticism, she refused to fulfill this mission, I was very sorry about what happened.Apparently the woman was in great pain. This case suggests that our parishioners can sometimes behave very incorrectly. Pani Emilia’s dad Valery was born in 1904 and lived for 78 years. He was a carpenter. And my mother, Jozefa Kanska, was born in 1908 and lived for 76 years. She was a housewife and raised three children. The elder brother Wilhelm died a tragic death at the age of 28, he was crushed by a combine harvester. He died on the way to the hospital and was orphaned by 2 daughters. Emilia also has a younger brother, Vaclav, who has made strong friends with her father Victor.During the years of this priest’s stay in Makeyevka, they often traveled together by car to Kamenets-Podolsky, where Father Victor was from. Vaclav fell in love with Father Victor so much that, not finding those qualities in the next priests, he simply stopped attending church. I met him several times during the Christmas carols at Madame Emilia’s, and these meetings were enough to be convinced how hypersensitive Emilia’s brother turns out to be. Emilia herself worked at the Kirov metallurgical plant in the manufacture of thermal insulation for all kinds of metal vessels.Pani Mila divorced her husband in 1994 because she could not bear the antics of a man suffering from an alcoholic disease. After the divorce, her husband lived in the parental home, since it was at that time that his mother died. The house without a mistress soon turned into a den, where other alcoholics willingly began to catch up. After a while, a decomposing corpse of the owner was found in the household. Although no investigation was undertaken and no one was punished, however, Mrs. Mila insists that her husband did not die a natural death, but rather was killed by drinking companions.According to Mrs. Emilia, this marriage was unsuccessful from the very beginning. Pani Mila is naturally quiet, arriving in Donbass did not make any effort to find a partner. However, as it happens, friends at work, and even neighbors, made attempts to participate in her fate. So they took Milya up with a man with whom she had nothing in common. The wedding did not follow, and even the Lord God did not give children. The woman’s shyness led to the fact that she even gave interviews with difficulty. From the adventures of her childhood, Mrs. Mila told me only a very revealing story.So, one day at school, her friends, for no reason, no reason, decided to beat Emilia and their intention was brought to the end. Milya, who in those years was an exemplary student, suddenly lost her desire to go to school. She did not tell anyone about what had happened, and the parents, noticing that the girl was skipping lessons, could not understand what was happening. According to Mrs. Mili, this is the most terrible event in her life. Milya considers her nephew’s birthday the happiest event in her life. Having no children of her own, Mrs. Mila learned to share the joy and family successes of her younger brother as her own.
All safety instructions are written in blood …
I believe that ANY rules or instructions on TB should begin with this phrase, maybe then it will be better to reach. This especially applies to the rules for handling weapons. Most people know: “The owner of the weapon should always treat the weapon as if it is loaded and ready to fire.”.. “. They know, but self-confidently violate, I myself have seen it many times.
– Ah-ah … I was sure that it was not loaded! – sobs another hunter over the corpse of a shot comrade.
– Oh-oh- oh, it fired on its own … – the next dumbass is justified … But you can’t unfold what has been done …
The text will contain several stories on this topic that happened to me personally. and those who are long – let them leaf through ..
As a child, I was engaged in a shooting range for several years.Shooting from a small-bore rifle and very successfully, in my opinion, at the age of 13 to get the 1st adult category, not reaching one point to the CCM, to become the champion of the region among schoolchildren, I think more than.
At first, the rules for handling weapons were hammered into us almost at every lesson, but nevertheless there were still idiots who violated them.
We were sometimes, as a discharge and for a change, allowed to shoot from other weapons, for example, from a Margolin pistol chambered for the usual small-caliber 5.6 mm cartridge.by 25 meters. And now, we were given such a barrel to each, we go with a gun along the corridor by a group of 8 people led by a trainer. According to the rules: the barrel is on the fuse, the magazine is separate, the cartridges are separate, you can only equip it at the firing range. And one smart guy, well, he was in such a hurry to shoot that he left behind, decided to fill the store in advance, put it in the pistol, then thought that nothing would happen if he twisted the bolt and put it back on the safety catch.
Something happened to the pistol, maybe some stopper broke, but he immediately began to shoot, even without pressing the trigger.So he gave an unexpected burst of five shots. It was lucky that it was already drilled at the level of reflexes that the weapon should not be directed at people, so he twitched the bolt, lifting the barrel up, almost vertically. It’s good and what else did he keep in this position, although he got between the thumb and forefinger of his left hand, the sharp edges of the shutter, which was sharply moving, to blood, but he still didn’t give up, despite the pain and surprise. And how scared we were …
Only the whitewash on the high ceiling suffered, our nerves and a little our ears and morale, when our very intelligent coach, who had previously called everyone “you” and with the word “please”, suddenly began, stamping their feet, yelling wildly at this kid, splashing saliva and practically not using literary words…
Kicked out, of course.
The next incident happened a few years later, when I was already practicing on my own according to an individual program, coming at any time.
Winter holidays, I arrived in the morning. I change clothes slowly, because I hear that there are a lot of people in the gun (12 people) from the younger ones. Their trainer gives out the rifles himself (CM-2, if anyone is interested). No cartridges. In the dash, in the morning it is not crowded, one might say that there is no one, a security guard, a coach (not mine) and a boss in his office.The people who received the weapon are pulled out through a long corridor into a fairly spacious shooting area.
Children left unattended, do not even hesitate, begin to “go crazy”, splashing out irrepressible energy and coming up with incredible pranks on the go. First they clicked the bolts, and then one took out the cartridges that had been stuck in the previous training session. And they began to play war games. They broke off the bullets and fired. First into the wall. A lead bullet in a small-caliber cartridge can be removed (folded with hands to the side) quite easily.The sound without a bullet turns out to be a quiet, almost light cotton, inaudible in the gun, but a small sharp flame bursts out of the barrel. Beautiful.
Another kid who has received a weapon comes in, sees such a thing, also connects. Breaks off a bullet and trying not to pour out the gunpowder, carefully inserts, closes the bolt and shoots as a joke at one of his comrades.
I was not present at this, only when I ran along with the coach to loud, hysterical screams, I saw a still twitching corpse with a neat, small hole in its forehead, and the second kid beating nearby in hysterics, in a wide circle of the already silent crowd of others.
– I broke off a bullet! I broke off a bullet for sure! There she is! – sobbed the boy, repeating it like a spell and trying not to look at the dead, his best friend.
Further examination showed that a bullet was stuck in the barrel of that rifle from the previous shooting. Apparently, the defective cartridge was caught, and the shooter, due to inexperience, did not understand this, when the last shot simply allegedly did not hit the target. And I was too lazy to clean.
The director of the shooting gallery was fired, without the right to hold such positions, he received a suspended sentence, but the coach actually sat down.The instructions for the trainers were rewritten, but you still can’t bring the kid back. He was 12 years old. And for me, creepy science, for the rest of my life.
Maybe that’s why, when already in the army at the shooting range, the barrel of a loaded machine gun began to move towards me, without hesitation I plunged into the dust, pressing my head into the ground, trying to become small and invisible. My colleagues then laughed at me and made fun of me, and I had no doubt that I did everything right and would do so in the future in such situations.
But first things first.
Shooting range. We shoot from the AKS-74, breaking into squads. One of ours shoots, and we stand behind in five meters in a free column one by one, waiting for our turn. Everyone has their own machine gun and the store is equipped, but it is in a pouch and it is forbidden to attach it until it lies on a dirty mat and without an order. The sergeant, the squad leader, is in command. From the “birdhouse” the officers are watching the platoon’s firing (three shooting positions, one per squad).
At the command, an Uzbek from the young enters the firing line.He lies down, inserts the magazine, removes it from the safety catch, twitches, and on the command “Fire” shots for some reason do not happen, while we see that he frantically presses the trigger several times. Maybe a misfire, maybe the cartridge did not completely send, but he suddenly turns sharply to the left, rising and bending like a snake with the upper half of the body, and moving the barrel towards us and the sergeant, he also continues to press the trigger over and over again:
– Tovalitsya sergeant, do not shoot … – the sergeant jumped to the side, I instantly fell to the ground, and the rest, dumbfounded, continued to stand and look as if spellbound.
The sergeant leaned on the Uzbek from the side, pulling the machine gun aside with his hand by the barrel and pressing him to the ground. The platoon commander, red as a crayfish, had already flown down from the birdhouse along a steep metal staircase and was running in jumps towards us.
– D … baev !!! Donkey sniffed you !! Tomorrow you will hand over everything to me personally … – in the last words he hissed that that cobra, evidently from the spasm that seized the throat, swallowed, waved his doomed hand and already relatively calmly to the sergeant, who took and discharged the machine gun: – Don’t give the machine gun in your hands! In the outfit of his company, until I give permission to change… And so that outside the bedside table I didn’t see him without a rag … Phew, fucking piece …
In the evening, an Uzbek, lying down, passed the test in arms and at the same time the statute of the guard service:
– Do it once!
– The sentry’s face is inviolable … Uh, yes …
– What is “yes”, you fool? – grandfathers laugh. – Now you will be touched for plywood … Come on again ….
– I taught …
– Stand up! Attention! Take the emphasis lying! Do it once …
And how many people accidentally shot when unloading a weapon in the guardhouse … In my memory, seven or eight times.It would seem that the procedure is simple: Disconnect the store, remove it from the safety lock, distort the shutter, press the trigger, put it on the safety catch. And then they managed to get confused. First, the next dumbass twisted, and only then he disconnected the store – Babakh! It is good that for such cases, a thick, steel pipe, about a meter long, was installed in the guardhouse perpendicular to the wall, at the waist level, and all the manipulations were carried out only by placing the end of the trunk into it.
The next case with the already injured happened in Uzbekistan, where our regiment was found on a business trip on the occasion of the riots.
Peaceful people seem to be like Uzbeks, suddenly began to harshly cut and burn the Meskhetian Turks, regardless of gender and age. Margilan, not far from Jambul. It was already over, but they kept us there. Day patrols were canceled due to the terrible heat in early June, and there was nothing to patrol there, during the day the town simply died out, and several of our soldiers were seized by heatstroke.
Our company is found in some small school. Two fighters at the gate, two on patrol around the perimeter inside the fence. One sentry outside the windowless ammunition room.And what to do with the rest? On the street in the sun – a terrible thing.
In my opinion, all problems in the army arise when a soldier without control has time that is not occupied by any, even the most oak, business.
And here. It’s hot, stuffy, boring … Once again it’s very hot, and once again incredibly boring …
And company officers (five people) somewhere nadybala Vidic with cassettes (then a novelty) and all day watching, then Hollywood action films, sometimes comedy, or even porn, locked in one of the classes, such as headquarters, company office and their bedroom all rolled into one.
They beat me to the service, far from the high authorities, too tired of idleness, heat and a clear purpose. Having undressed to their underpants, they lie on mattresses all day and stare at a small TV set.
After breakfast, room no. companies ordered, such as cleaning weapons. Get busy. Three platoons – three school classes. How much can you clean it? Well, an hour, then another, and after three, already the most regular campaigners, the sergeants got tired of chasing someone.
I did not see who started it first. Fur-x … The first rubbing flew, from an old sheet issued for this case, torn into ribbons 2-3 centimeters wide.And away we go … everyone has several cartridges in their pockets dangling, albeit with a plastic bullet (milky white), issued to soldiers for riots, but nevertheless.
The technology is simple: The bullet breaks off the cartridge, the cleaning rod is hammered into the barrel tightly with a ramrod. An almost silent shot and a piece of cloth flies out of the barrel. It immediately opens up and fluffs up, so it flies a few meters at most, but it looks cool.
It is not so easy to pull out a bullet from AKS-74, caliber 5.45 from a cartridge, but we quickly adapted.Someone clamps with a door, some into the frame of a school chair from a profile square pipe inserts and breaks off a machine gun with a flame arrester … Straight war has begun: Poof-f, Poof-f … I immediately got sick:
– Guys … maybe … well nafig him? – but whoever listened to me, by that time I had served only a year and more two more conscriptions …
Sideways, sideways slipped into the corridor, fuck you comrades, I know firsthand how such games often end.
And for sure, after a while, the roar of a wounded boar, mats… The clapping stopped immediately. I went back, one grandfather jumps, clutching his ass with his hands, swears not childishly, the rest are in awe … Then he stopped and began to pull a long, bloody rub out of his ass. Dragging and dragging with a groan, but it still does not end … As a result, I pulled out a tape of 50 centimeters, if not more … … Therefore, he did not divide a piece of tape, but shoved it entirely, tamping it very tightly and strongly with a ramrod.It’s not interesting to shoot just like that, and then a friend bent down in time, enthusiastically working with a ramrod … underpants. Shuffled on the buttock from the inside and into the body – to a depth of more than a centimeter, slightly to the side of the natural hole.
Company paramedic, rushed under the company (to the school gym) and brought his bag. He poured a heavily bleeding wound with peroxide and applied-pressed a large tampon: Here, hold it yourself.I put an injection of pain reliever in my shoulder and another antibiotic. Grandfather, with his pants down, reclining on his stomach on a desk, moaning quietly and periodically firing a portion of mats and threats towards the Georgian, and the rest confer:
– Maybe he’ll heal like that …
– Let him say that he fell backwards on a corner lying on his side stools … – oh, inventors …
– He’d better say that he climbed onto an apple tree for apples (there were several on the school grounds) and fell, ran his ass on a mote …
– All this is bullshit, guys… – this is already a paramedic.
– Any doctor will determine that this is a firearm. And it will not heal by itself, there are particles of burnt gunpowder in the wound and, for sure, fragments of thread from the fabric from rubbing, cotton or panties. It is definitely necessary to clean it. And the place is still like that. The sphincter is damaged. In short, the company commander must honestly surrender! Let them call the car and take them to the hospital …
– Fuck …
The guy underwent several operations, the wound festered for a long time, in the end he was discharged, and then the order was issued to him … He did not serve for several months… The Georgian was given a year of disbat. And then the company, along with the officers, then fucked up for a long time at every opportunity. These are the toys …
Perhaps, based on my negative experience, I very quickly gave up hunting. At first I caught fire, but having traveled a couple of times, especially in a large company and almost turning gray ahead of time, I decided that I definitely didn’t need this. When they got drunk, the “hunters” began to brag about their trunks and shoot at bottles, not observing the most basic safety requirements.The one who put the bottles has not yet moved aside and a couple of meters, and someone is already starting to shoot … And several times I myself pulled or tilted down, inadvertently aimed at me or at others, the barrel …
– Yes, it is not loaded. .. – what can I say …, to whom to explain …
Comrade also gave up after one incident. They went with a friend to duck. A narrow channel, abundantly overgrown with reeds along the banks, there is not much clean water, 20-30 meters. We arrived late, already at night, pokemaril a couple of hours in the car and at dawn quietly swam in a rubber boat into the reeds.They pushed several rubber ducks into the clean water …
– And then I grunted at the decoy … – neighing, grimacing comrade, whom I visited in the hospital. From the reeds from the other bank, such firing began, there were at least five trunks. I jumped up in the boat, yelling, waving my arms, but where is it …
The boat is blown away, they hit me and Vitka, but they continue to shoot …
He received seventeen pellets, Vitka eight, but one in the scrotum … All the pellets went shallow, but it’s still terribly unpleasant.
Once I read that the non-combat losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Donbass are more than 30% of the total number of losses, and in some nat.battalions and all 50%. In principle, I’m not surprised. In the absence of proper discipline, a la Cossack freemen, such as the Zaporizhzhya Sich, and even under the gorilovka, it may very well be. For comparison, the non-combat losses of the USSR army in Afghanistan never exceeded 10%.
The Military Prosecutor of Ukraine generally stated that non-combat losses exceeded combat losses, but Chief of the General Staff Muzhenko corrected him, quote from LIGA.net: “He said that from the beginning of the conflict to the end of 2017, combat losses in Donbass amounted to just over 2,300 servicemen , and non-combat – 871.”Moreover, he noted that such accidental losses have decreased significantly compared to 2015-2016.” Surely the lion’s share of accidents there are due to careless handling of weapons, but they represent it as suicide so that relatives do not pay … weapons.And I don’t need to talk about self-defense. First of all, criminal elements and other frostbitten inadequacies will be armed. Here some morons on bicycles manage to crush children to death, and you tell me about deadly trunks …
Well, his nafig, gentlemen …
