Ilya I know from birth. As a child, every summer we spent three Ilya, his sister Alenka and I, their cousin. I was the older sister. We got along very well with each other. If Elijah was a trouble, as if all life Ilyusha, from infant to adult, flashed before my eyes. He — the younger brother, naive, kind, gentle …
As a child, brother, parents read the book "Pro Ilya Muromets", and his eyes sparkled, "I will also be a strong and fair!".
Elijah loves to read that quite unusual for today's youth. It comes from his grandmother Zinaida Filip, who said: "I have all the grandchildren are talented." We pass it in isolation a lot of books, but for some reason not all accept. English books do not take — they say, is prohibited. The last time the mother even Valentin Rasputin did not take. Elijah was released a lot of magazines in isolation, but do not know whether they reach.
We get letters from prison are very interesting. His mother, Tamara A., believes that he is writing a book, all the requests shared notebook. In letters parent to his younger cousin, analyzes the mistakes that he makes in his letters to Elijah. Sergei is very beautiful painting, but writes as illiterate, making so many mistakes! So Elijah accompanies each error, and explains: "Hey, man" — this appeal, it is necessary to put a comma … Correct the error and write five more examples on artagramav this topic.
Ilya has always helped my mother in the education of our younger brother Sergei, led to him learning, educational talks. Elijah loved my dad.
Ilya very good ability to learn languages, extremely well-written and in Russian, and Belarusian. Good knowledge of English. Mastered the computer, print learned blindly. He has a philosophical turn of mind. Such a pure humanist, although he was in college for electrical appliances. He is fond of scooters, motorcycles, he collects, parses technique.
Ilya sings well, plays guitar, saxophone, flute, drums — his father was a musician, is it hereditary. In sports, a child has mastered Sambo. Paulhe was in practice at home in Baranovichi, only went to Minsk in late November. I am very sorry that recently met with him often, more talked on the phone …
December 19 Elias was in the Square. I was able to talk with him in the evening of the 19th. He was shocked, excited — this is the first election in his life. Believed in change. Served 10 days in jail for taking part in the protest. Detention center in Zhodino suffered severe stress. The boys were sitting together helped him as a junior. When we met on the 30th of December, after his release, Elias was very confused, feeling bad. But the sense of responsibility prevailed: "We have to be in the classroom, I have lab work."
There, he immediately called the director of college and demanded that Elijah wrote pakayalnuyu explanation that the square was by chance, or else it will be dismissed. Ilya has made no pity, and said that is not going to apologize because they do not feel guilty, and he did not repent of anything. January 5 politely invited him to come to the administration of the college to sign some papers. But there he was met by KGB: reported that he suspected a criminal case. Placed first in the detention center in Akrestsin, and then transferred to the detention facility in Volodarskogo. Until now, he is "like a tiger in a cage" — so wrote from prison currently Ilyusha.
Very upset when my grandmother died Jan. 22, and he was not allowed to the funeral. Grandmother he loved very much. Going through and his friend Theodore Mirzayanava, a student of the Belarusian State Economic University, who is also awaiting trial …
We miss him. I believe Ilya optimist — he hopes, and rightly so, because we all believe in and are proud of it.
