“I have been retired for 13 years. I used to work in civil defense. My life was regular, but it is currently a bit difficult because we get our retirement pension every 40 days, or every month and a half. I really wanted to do free work, but I didn’t have the money to start by myself. Regardless of everything, I still prefer this life. People were not able to go around without restrictions, because of the regime, no one was free in the city. The hardest part was; every young boy was enlisted for military service 3 times. The only thing that I think was good back then was how cheap everything was. The money we got was enough for everything.”
