"Vladimir Ovchinnikov is 82 years old. He can be called the most famous resident of Borovsk. He turned the city into an open-air museum. There are more than a hundred of his wall paintings in the city – Ovchinnikov leads tours of the places where his frescoes are located. Executed Future is the title of his book about Borovsk residents who became victims of repression.
– About three days before that, a police major whom I had met many times called me (he fined me four times for unauthorized calls to the authorities to remember repressions). He says to me: "Do you know if the banner is hanging or not?" I say: "According to my information, it hangs." "I want to come to your home." "Well, come on. What do you want?" "I’ll take an explanation from you why this banner hangs." He never came, and the banner was ripped off."
