In connection with yet another blow to Russian nationalist sentiment, caused by the death of a student of Moscow Ivan Agafonov, after it hit Dagestan Rasul athlete Mirzaev
Dmitry Bykov wrote his own version Zhuravlev Gazmatova. Read by Michael Efremov.
I think sometimes that the horsemen,
Kutyaschie in Moscow’s taverns,
Let them cool and famous,
Required to keep himself in hand.
No need to shout there, as at the station,
And demand an answer to the market,
And if they are shown a toy —
Do not kill the one who showed.
Do not see the insult in every gesture,
Who did met a youth,
The concepts of honor highlanders, vendetta
Do not plant in Russia, finally.
Do not shed tears publicly crocodile,
That they unnecessarily rigid.
Not to say that if you killed
Then you came like a man.
Do not spoil mahalovkami funeral feast,
Do not insult lying in a coffin —
And do not assume the fight for the honor of the Motherland
Fist of wrestling.
I think sometimes the fans,
Although they are athletic and friendly,
Should not behave like soldiers,
And pontovatsya also do not have to.
You should not shout familiar
On the topic come in large numbers here,
There should be no pogrom
And nasedat to the courthouse.
Poklavshi on the police with the device,
Decide the St Bartholomew’s Day
And it’s all linked to football
Homeland, justice and so on.
I think sometimes that the payoff
One day will come
By rastyaschim that horseman that fan,
To set on one day to the people.
I’m afraid that when their cards are bits
And zamayachat investigation and trial,
They will not save their horsemen hand,
And fans, in general, do not save.
