Krasnodar, 10 July – Yug Times. Vladimir Runov, a known Kuban author, reflects upon rises and falls, soviet militia heroes, and his own life as a retiree. “If you are carried away with your own trade, and if you do it well, you will always remain well sought-after. And if additionally to that you are a gifted person, you will have a place everywhere. Regretfully, in Russia talent often comes along with vice. We know lots of people who were infinitely talented and infinitely vicious personalities - we need only refer to Pushkin as an example.”

Q.: For several years, you have been a member of the Public Council of the regional Department of Internal Affairs. What problems in the lawenforcement activity can you see from aside?

A.: When speaking at the Council sessions, I often say that we need to write in newspapers and show on TV deeds of soviet militia and contemporary police officers keeping order and safety in our streets. Look at the negative streaming from our TV screens. Why what we are shown are robberies, pillages and murderers and not how a brave police officer risked his life to arrest a criminal?

Q.: What problems that need resolving do you see in contemporary Krasnodar?

A.: Community facilities is our eternal headache. The Spanish football fans were right when they described Krasnodar as a very odd city of a great number of high-rise houses and narrow streets packed with cars. Whenever we can see a free spot of land, we try to squeeze a 30-storey building there, without giving a thought to week sewerage or power supply systems. Why are we erecting these multi-storey monsters? Why are we buliding them along the Kuban River, turning it into a side gutter? Krasnodar is filled up with cars. There are 500,000 cars registered in the city. We are used to all these things, but our visitors take it as a shock.

Q.: Last year, you celebrated your 80th birthday. What do you think of the upcoming pension reform that is being so much spoken about?

A.: Whatever a reform could be, it should always be considered from the only viewpoint: what opportunities would it give to the people? I have lived through a lot of pension reforms, that were much discussed and spoken about.

Regretfully, the current pension amount can’t let a pensioner be comfortably off without having to work somewhere.
