The boomerang of violence

Published

on

“I could not reconcile with my dad. It was bad for me. He was beating me”. Ion shakes his hands, plays with his fingers, bends them. His answers are short, he often does not find the words, though he is looking nervous. However, he responds well. Bored, but in a good way. In the last seven years, he stole everything he wanted, and the only punishment was the beating received from his stepfather. Last spring, Ion learned he was going to spend a decade in jail for murder.

I arrived in Drochia on an August morning. The air was still cold and fresh like a leaf of aloe. I went down to the train station and started walking to the only center in Moldova that advises those who were aggressing their family members. At 10:00, I was going to meet with Ruslan, a 33-year-old man who was sentenced to two years of imprisonment because he hit his wife.
