Маша Гессен. Родилась в Москве. С родителями эмигрировала в США. В начале 90-х вернулась в Москву. Лесбиянка. Журналистка. Придерживается либеральных взглядов. Пишет разные статьи в разные издания на русском и английском.
В одной из последних статей, к примеру, пишет следующее:
"The new leader could actually be a fascist head of an aggressive, nationalistic, war-mongering Russia".
"... included reestablishing the Soviet system of residence permits (when one could be arrested for spending the night at a friend's house)..."
"Repression is the only weapon that Russian governments have traditionally known..."
"...The second reason is that fascism is what Russians want."
"Who would emerge from the violence? Right now it's hard to predict. One candidate is Dmitry Rogozin, leader of Motherland and former leader of a fascist political organization called the Congress of Russian Communities. Another possible candidate is Eduard Limonov, a writer whose Nationalist Bolshevik Party is the only viable grass-roots political movement in Russia today. The Kremlin is scared of the ultranationalist Limonov, who was jailed for his political activities and released just over a year ago. But Limonov, though he inspires many young Russians to tackle politics, may ultimately prove too Western for Russia, because his platform makes no reference to the Russian Orthodox Church."
Что у таких людей с головой?
