"I watched the revolution from work and heard it [Independence Square] was a place with positive energy. Sometimes I think it is a carefully produced show, but I want to believe in the best.
"I make enough money for my son and me to get by, but life was simpler in Soviet times -- we had fixed salaries and got them on time.
"Sergi is into cars at the moment. I want him to know and do as much as possible. To get an education and to discover some talent."
On the Gongadze case: "I think it was all planned by high-ranking officials -- but they will find the people who did it."
