To the people,
Today, I heard about the whole situation with the pranksters around me. I haven’t laughed like that for a long time! :)))
It would have been more fun if these jokes were played genuinely, and not out of malice.
But pranks like this expose the meanness and underhandedness of pro-Putin Russian politics. Such “child’s play” is the handiwork of entire divisions of Russian special services. The guys there sure like to fuck around! :)))
My response, written on the form they offered me, clearly showed everyone that I have no intention of testing the loyalty of an honest, genuine person. I’m not going to take their rotten bait!
My reason for suspending my dry hunger strike I have honestly explained to the people. It is not related to any fake letters.
As for admitting my guilt – none of my attorneys ever suggested I do that. They support my stance and respect my decisions.
Thus, I am not going to refuse [representation by] Mark Feygin as my lawyer. He is under constant pressure, and is handling it with dignity. He is a reliable lawyer, and I trust him.
So let’s not pay any attention to half-witted pranks. We’ve had a laugh, that’s enough.
Let’s get back to working towards my freedom!
[Letter to Mark Feygin]
Mark, are you a fool!?
What kind of nonsense would it be – to abandon a professional attorney because of silly childish pranks?
We keep on working, Mark!
And don’t ask me stupid questions like this again.
