I'm Yermakov' lvan.

And he was John.

So we're kind of namesakes.

We met in the summer of 2001 .

For two months I'd been locked up

in the village of Verkhny lskhoi

by Aslan Gugaev.

Back then' none of our

lot had heard of him.

His detachment wasn't that big.

There were three of us there.

Me' Fedka and a Jew - a commercial.

A businessman from Vladikavkaz.

Called Semyon' I think. . .

Me and Fedka were sawing up wood

when they brought them in on a truck.

There were another

two of our guys with them . . .

Vladimir Gostyukhin

Yuri Stepanov

You killed my brother!

Yes' I killed your brother!

And a whole lot more!

I whipped your sorry black arses and

I'll keep whipping them

because you're enemies. . .

Did they pay you well?

Don't kill me! Please!

I just arrived'

I'm not guilty! Please!

My mum's all alone. . .



Look down !

- What's he want?

- Something in English.

Take the bucket - it stinks!

- Who was shooting?

- They killed two of ours.

Give me your hand.

Shit happens. . .

Take the jug.

It'll be us next!

I didn't like her at first -

full of herself. Wouldn't even look at you.

I didn't understand

that she was just embarrassed.

We all crapped in the same bucket.

And I thought ginger

was a right weed.

In the hole' it's

every man for himself -

you're always hungry

and they beat you the whole time.

He wasn't too bad' though.

He looked after her.

A 'gentleman'.

And from the start with me. . .

because of my English' no doubt.

Back in Tobolsk I finished

computer school

and in Chechnya I'd get the news

by lnternet for Aslan.

. . . and a whole lot more besides.

I whipped your sorry black arses and

I'll keep whipping them

because you're enemies. . .

Did they pay you well?

Don't kill me! Please!

I just arrived' I'm not guilty! Please!

My mum's all . . .

I'm worn out. Can't get any relaxation.

There's a war on . . .

When will it end?

When all the Russians

will live in the North.

You're white.

You've got the White Sea.

We're black.

We've got the Black Sea.

Why did you kill the lads?

It took me three years

to find that Lieutenant.

I paid thirty grand to get him.

He shot my brother.

I found him in Rostov.

He killed a lot more

good M uslims besides. . .

And the youngster?

Who needs someone like that?

He goes off to get some vodka.

There's a war on'

and he leaves his post.

Is that any way to carry on' lvan?


You're either a shepherd or a sheep.

Those who let themselves be skewered -

they're the sheep.


There are people amongst you.

I saw one in jail near Virkhayansk.

A hardcore convict' strong'

like a Chechen.

If people like him led Russia'

you could win this war.

But you've got too few of them.

You're stupid and weak.

And you're led by half -wits.

You've given back

the Ukraine' Kazakhstan.

You've just given away

half the country for free.

Soon the Chinese

will take the Far East.

You're fighting us

while in Moscow I've got a hotel'

three restaurants' four brigades

in Petersburg' Moscow and Samara.

I milk the Russians like cows

but we still get money

out of the state budget.

Do you know. . .

why you fight badly?

You don't know?

Because you're not fighting

for your Homeland !

You fight because you've been herded

out here like a sheep.

I know my ancestors going

back seven generations.

I'm a descendant

of the M urid' Hadji Kazi.

A hundred and fifty years ago

he was already cutting you lot up.

This is my land
