Vasily Parfiankou. Portrait against a lattice

Seeing the name of the Company in the list of defendants in the case of the riots on December 19, I immediately thought of an eight-month vigil in Kurapaty, place of death of the victims of Stalin's repressions in 2001-2002. This short and seemingly invisible boy perhaps more all timeand held in Kurapaty, protecting the natural boundary of the construction of the ring road.

Arriving at Kurapaty November 9, 2001 th, when the bulldozers brought down crosses, and riot police beat defenders of the tract, Basil remained in Kurapaty watch till the end of the memory 3 June 2002-th.

Vasily Parfiankou remained in Kurapaty and severe frosts and prolonged rainfall, almost burned down in the tent, which was set on fire unknown. Now I remember his hands, blackened by firewood and maintaining a fire, often hoarse voice … Basil was not too eloquent and pathetic, he could not speak well, and usually his colleagues often give interviews, "Freedom", which made every day 250 days a report from Kurapaty.
