Based on the private conversations with a career criminal and headlines at the time
Shall I write here?
I'm cooking dinner. Later.
But in the meantime - I served in Afghanistan in the KGB troops, then I was a bandit, was imprisoned for robbery for 9 years. After that I don’t fucking care.
Is it clear?
But what should I’ve done? Join the cops?
My childhood friend is a bodyguard. I tell him: are you stupid? Taking bullets for someone else's body.
I'm more serious than you think. I don't care about you if you don’t care about me. You asked for help. I'm ready. But this is my time.
I became a bandit because I had always wanted to be one and actually always was. Literally and figuratively. You won't understand. It’ll take too long to explain.
I was chased by three police squads when I was on the run. I didn't know then that my former fellow soldiers had worked there all their lives. Now I know.
So now you tell yourself who you are. I know who I am.

I ran away, more than once. From the cops and from the prison. I'm not an ordinary guy. I’m not a slave. I can't be forced to take orders. Read books about real people. Smart, proud, brave, kind and become one yourself. Free.
Kill your husband. Somewhere Machiavelli says, I do not remember exactly, but something like: If a person does not understand from the first moment what is required of him, he should not be persuaded – he should be killed. In context, of course.
During the escape I walked 100 km in the taiga, it rained for 3 days, the end of August, cold. It was extremely difficult to understand where you were. But I came out exactly where I had planned. Then I also thought that someone or something had helped me. I think so now. I suspect, anyway. But I don't believe in anything.

A book about me? It's too early to sum up.
I have big plans. Like everyone else, right? I'm not interested in a legal business. I need an illegal one. I know a lot, why do I need an ad?
You're young. I'm not. There's a lot you don't know yet. They'll find me and kill me immediately. I'm dangerous. Forget about me.
I can find anyone. Therefore, others also. I am well-read, with the training of a saboteur, I am capable of levelling a city. I’m of "moral character". But only I think so. Others are different. You'll suffer too. Never meddle in a case where there's even the slightest threat.
I'm trained and you're not. You're a child. I have plans. Where everything is thought out.
No books about me, I’m telling you. I don’t play games. Such a gamble is serious. I’ve got 5 cats. If something happens, they will die without me. Young, I picked up their mother on the street, she died. They are like children for me. Children, indeed. That’s it.
Kill, and you’ll find out. Writers write about what they’ve undergone themselves, don’t they?

Childhood was like yours. Everyone’s. Was the best in my class. Got arrested and went to juvie. Why the fuck do you need this? And I?
Twice I loved. It all didn’t work out. I hope it won't happen again. God forbid.
Have a mother. But for 25 years she worked in the prosecutor's office, then in the city administration. All my relatives are like that. Only I'm normal.
I was born that way. There was no turning point. I'm a romantic, I said. And you are people. I'm not. You're you and I'm me. It’s always been like that. And always will. One friend, a police colonel, said when she found out I was in prison: "Everyone makes mistakes". To which I replied: "I made a mistake, I got caught."
One of the greats said: "I can't teach you anything, I can only help you learn". Man himself must learn. Everything must be tried, felt. You live only once. You need to know everything. Or you will be a slave of one who knows.
