But still, when we talk to foreigners, we’ll boast about our cultural grandeur.
Every time I come back to Moscow after a visit to Surgut I realize I have everything: the freedom to do whatever I want. I tell my mum matter-of-factly that I’m going to a techno party.
Surgut is a small, isolated city where people are narrow-minded.
If I went there now and told people about my gay friends in Moscow, they would be shocked.
But in my opinion, it doesn’t matter who is in power — Putin, Sobchak, Alexei Navalny — nothing will really change.
When Dmitry Medvedev was president, did anything change? I’m 18 and I live an energetic and comfortable life.
