My name is Tatiana. My father died in the mines in my village, so he was already buried when he died. We were all buried there. Buried under the soil of Russia. That is why I left, to find a better life.
I need you to take Semyon out of the picture. I want you to arrest him.
Arrest him for what?
Rape. The girl was 14.
And of course she will testify?
She is dead, but she had Semyon's baby. If you can prove baby was his, and girl was underage, that is statutory rape. You have baby, you need Semyon's DNA. For poetic reasons, I suggest you take his blood.
Have you ever met a girl named Tatiana?
I meet lot of girls named Tatiana.
She was pregnant.
Ah, in that case - no, I've never heard of her.
She died on my shift.
I thought you did birth?
Sometimes birth and death go together. She came in with needle punches all over both arms. Probably a prostitute, at the age of fourteen. Do you think Semyon's son knew her?
[growing agitated] I am driver. I go left, I go right, I go straight ahead - that's it.
[referring to Soyka] Okay. Now I'm going to do his teeth and cut off his fingers. You might want to leave room. [Nikolai motions for Azim to go away, and then puts out his cigarette on his tongue]
