"My Kremlin" is the image of the motherland. A knitted fence with a trivial pattern clashes with a Kremlin wall decorated with fir trees. This scene is akin to a familiar old sweater. People often continue to wear a sweater for many years. The sweater is a metaphor for life in the cold Siberian outskirts, where winter lasts for a very long time. Here the Motherland is taken for granted – you get worn and torn in the place where you are born.
