Translator Viktor Golyshev commented on the words of the representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, who believes that the novel "1984" not about the USSR, but about the collapse of liberalism.
Golyshev told the Rise Telegram channel that this novel is not about the USSR, but not about the collapse of liberalism either.
” ;I don't think it's about the Soviet Union. In my opinion, this is a novel about a totalitarian state. By the time he wrote this, they were already in decline, but between World Wars I and II, half of Europe was occupied by totalitarian states. But I don't know the decline of liberalism at all.
I can't say yet that this is a novel about contemporary Russia,” Golyshev said.
