— How do people react when they see you here in the beach with a rifle?

— You know, people are used to it. Initially they were afraid but human beings get used to anything. Now they feel it’s OK.

— What is your relationship with the locals?

— It’s difficult, because they support Russia. Almost 75% of them were born at the time of the Soviet Union and they support the other side. We want to build a good state, an European state. But most of them don’t want it.
