"Reckless" anarchist Maria Nikiforova

"Reckless" anarchist Maria Nikiforova
M. Nikiforova in prison, 1909

The Civil War brought (and some - and threw) on the stage of a big stories very unexpected characters. And one of these heroines was a certain Maria (Marusya) Nikiforova. She started as an unmotivated terrorist, in exile she became closely acquainted with Alexandra Kollontai and Vladimir Antonov-Ovseenko. Her "Free fighting squad" in one of the skirmishes once even defeated the detachment of Grigory Kotovsky. And at first, some of Nestor Makhno himself was called only "an associate of Marusya Nikiforova."
We will talk about this strange woman in two short articles.

The first mystery of Maria Nikiforova

The father of the heroine of the article, Grigory Nikiforov, was a nobleman, participated in the Russian-Turkish war of 1877-1878, rose to the rank of staff captain. After retiring, he settled in the city of Aleksandrovsk, founded under Catherine II, known for the famous poem “Grenada” by M. Svetlov, which became a song:

"Answer, Aleksandrovsk,
And Kharkov, answer:
Long time ago in Spanish
Have you started singing?

This city was part of the Novorossiysk Yekaterinoslav province, but in Soviet times it was renamed Zaporozhye and became the center of its own region. Maria Grigorievna Nikiforova was born in 1885 and immediately after this event, her parents dramatically changed their lifestyle: they stopped receiving guests, prevented their daughter from communicating with other children. The reason, as they said later, was a rare congenital pathology - an anomaly in the development of the genital organs. In 1909, the convicted terrorist Nikiforova was even mistaken by her cellmates for a male spy planted next to them. One of them - Ekaterina Akinfieva-Nikitina, in the article "Our Escape", published in the journal "Katorga and Exile" (No. 7, 1929) reports:

“She was clearly hiding from us: she always undressed under the covers, did not wash, like all of us, in the restroom up to her waist, jumped out there, making sure that everyone was sitting in the cell.”

She wrote about the same in the book Novinsky Liberation (1929).

In the end, Nikiforova was forced to make a confession that shocked everyone. Akinfieva-Nikitina says:

“It turned out to be not a boy or a girl, but a complete and rare type of hermaphrodite - the more literate of us soon guessed this and called him “it”. He was not a provocateur, but, of course, sexual deformity affected the entire psyche - hysterical, perverted and immoral. Abroad, where he ended up after his escape, he was guided by the anarchists, he lived strangely, now in a man's, now in a woman's dress, had corresponding novels, received some kind of money. We all parted ways with him."

There were rumors that later, abroad, Nikiforova was transplanted with some kind of “hormonal glands”, thanks to which she became more like a woman. Her close friend, the anarchist Artemy Gladkikh, also spoke about this during interrogation in the Cheka. However, no one can say what kind of operation it was, where it was performed, and whether it was at all. After all, it is known for sure that the first officially registered sex change operation was performed only in 1930: a certain Einar Weginer after it became Lily Elba. What did this strange woman look like? Here is how E. Akinfieva-Nikitina, mentioned above, describes it:

“A very young, angular woman, short, stocky, brace-haired, with darting brown eyes. A drunken boyish face, in which, despite her youth, there was something senile.

And here are the testimonies of people who met with her after the revolution. Makhnovets M. Chudnov saw Nikiforova in 1918, he reports:

“She was a woman of thirty-two, or thirty-five years of age, of medium height, with a tired, prematurely aged face, in which there was something of an eunuch or a hermaphrodite. Hair cut in a circle. A Cossack beshmet with gazyrs sat deftly on it. A white hat is on sideways.

The Bolshevik M. Kiselev, who saw Nikiforova at a rally in Berdyansk in May 1919, describes her as follows:

“About thirty years old. Slender with a haggard, exhausted face, she gave the impression of an old overstayed female student. Sharp nose. Sunken cheeks ... She is wearing a blouse and skirt, a small revolver hangs from her belt.

But another Bolshevik, S. Raksha, secretary of the party bureau of the Dnieper Red Guard detachment, reports:

“They said that she was a beautiful woman, and that her adjutant staff captain Kozubchenko, also handsome and dandy, did not take his eyes off her. I got them both. Marusya was sitting at the table crumpling a cigarette between her teeth. The devil really was beautiful: about thirty, a gypsy type, black-haired, with a magnificent chest, raising her tunic high.

Of course, everyone has different tastes, but I still think that the creators of the Nine Lives of Nestor Makhno series pretty much flattered Marusya:

A. Ukolova as M. Nikiforova

M. Kiselev, mentioned above, claims that Nikiforova was a cocaine addict, which is very easy to believe. After the introduction in the Russian Empire on July 19, 1914 of a ban on the production and sale of all types of alcoholic products in all sectors of society, the consumption of cocaine and heroin, which were then freely sold in pharmacies, increased sharply.

Advertisement for heroin, which was produced by the well-known Bayer company until the early 30s as a cough medicine

There were also “cocktails” in which alcohol was mixed with drugs: a mixture of alcohol and cocaine was called “Baltic tea”, alcohol with opium was called “raspberry”.

Marusya Nikiforova "goes into the revolution"

Maria Nikiforova is said to have run away from home at the age of 16. Some say that the reason for this act was some kind of romantic story with a certain "boyfriend" who left her after the first night. She worked as a nanny, a clerk, and even washed bottles for a while at a local vodka distillery. At the age of 18, she joined one of the anarchist groups, which consisted of supporters of "motivated class terror" - "struggle for the sake of struggle." "Motiveless" argued that acts of terror should be organized on the principle of belonging to the estate of the nobility or to any capitalist - regardless of his personal and human qualities. Any terrorist acts, from their point of view, were useful, as they undermined the foundations of the state system. Calling a spade a spade, we can say that it was a gang of lawless people and scumbags who believed that it was possible with a clear conscience to kill any decently dressed person who could well turn out not to be a "bourgeois", but a well-known and respected doctor, university professor, architect, and so on. Further. Of course, it is much easier to kill such people than to organize assassination attempts on the king, ministers or governors-general. Nikiforova participated in many actions, with her participation the train to Nikopol, Libman's cafe and a haberdashery store in Odessa were blown up, the administrator of one of the factories was killed by a bomb thrown by Maria personally.

Elka Golda Elevna Ruvinskaya (aka Olga Ilyinichna Taratuta), participant in the attack on us at the Libman cafe, founder of the Anarchist Red Cross (now the Black Cross)

Some sources report that Nikiforova at that time preferred men's suits and demanded that her party members call her Volodya. In 1907, during her arrest in Kherson, she tried to detonate a bomb, but something went wrong - the infernal machine did not work. Ekaterina Akinfieva-Nikitina, mentioned above, claims that Nikiforova was charged with just one episode - as a participant in the murder of a bailiff in the city of Starobelsk, Yekaterinoslav province. At the trial, she either sobbed and repented of everything, then threatened the judges. As a result, she was sentenced to 20 years of hard labor. At the same time, Nikiforova cannot be called an ideological revolutionary, because, as it turned out, she had not the slightest idea about the "platforms" of various parties, and even the currents of the same anarchism. Already in the cell, according to the previously quoted Ekaterina Akinfieva-Nikitina, Nikiforov:

“Alternately she called herself either an anarchist or a socialist-revolutionary, but she herself did not understand even the basics of revolutionary theories. I haven't read the books."

But, as they say, she tried to “care” for Natalya Klimova, who was a member of the Socialist-Revolutionary fighting group that organized the explosion of the dacha of Prime Minister P. A. Stolypin on August 12, 1906.

Natalia Klimova

In the summer of 1909, Nikiforova became a participant in the famous escape of 12 revolutionaries from the Moscow Novinsky women's hard labor prison (the thirteenth was the prison guard - Tarasova Alexandra Vasilievna, who lived until 1971). Dresses for them were sewn by the mother and sister of Vladimir Mayakovsky, and the future great poet, who was then only 16 years old, was arrested in this case and spent 11 months in prison, 6 of them in solitary confinement.

The Social Revolutionaries collected 8 rubles for the prisoners, which they ... forgot in the cell. But they acted strictly according to plan: they entered the office of the head of the prison, tied her up and got out through the window.

Novinskaya hard labor prison, demolished in 1960. Now the famous “house-book” is on this site (Novy Arbat, 36)

Three fugitives were caught immediately, literally the next day, but the rest, in the end, through Siberia, China and Japan managed to get to France. At the same time, according to Akinfieva-Nikitina

Nikiforova gave everyone a lot of trouble, she writes about her (in the masculine):
“Comrades, whom he had to face during his wanderings around Russia after his escape, he struck with his wild proposals: to rob the post office, kill the railway gendarme and so on. At the same time, he suffered from some kind of chronic thoughtlessness, he could not be left unattended even for one hour, and only happiness can explain the fact that he did not fail ten times himself and his companions.

Life in exile

Makhno's chief of staff, V. Belash, claimed that Nikiforova lived in the United States for some time, and then moved to France through Spain. However, apart from his testimony, there is no evidence of Nikiforova's stay in America. It is known for sure that she lived in Paris, where she studied in the studio of Auguste Rodin - in the mansion "Hotel Biron", which now houses the museum of this sculptor. They say that Rodin highly appreciated her talent and considered her one of the best students.

In the meantime, I met Alexandra Kollontai and Vladimir Antonov-Ovseenko, the future commander of the Red Army units of the South of Russia and the head of the Political Directorate of the Revolutionary Military Council. By the way, he's in his 30's. On the whole, he spoke positively about this chieftain, calling her "an energetic and stupid leader of anarchist detachments."

In Paris, Nikiforova continued to behave extremely extravagantly and often "came out" in a men's suit, which in those days was a real challenge to public opinion. Since 1913, she began to call herself Marusya. In France, in the same 1913, she married the Polish anarchist Witold Brzostek, but soon left her husband. After the outbreak of the First World War, the famous anarchist ideologist P. Kropotkin took an anti-German position. Under his influence, Nikiforova, under a false name, entered the officer cavalry school, and then, in 1916, went to the Balkans as an instructor.

Return to Russia

After the February Revolution, Nikiforova, like many other emigrants, returned to Petrograd (while she deserted from the French army). Again she wrote articles in left-wing newspapers, made heated speeches at rallies, including in front of the sailors of Kronstadt, as F. Raskolnikov recalled. After the suppression of the July anti-government protests (the July Crisis), she chose to leave for her homeland - to Aleksandrovsk. The ideas of anarchism were then very popular in Ukraine and Novorossiya. At first, Nikiforova collaborated with the Bolsheviks, who were led by her old acquaintance, Vladimir Antonov-Ovseenko, commander of the Red troops of the South of Russia.

V. Antonov-Ovseenko in 1919

Things got to the point that he appointed her "head of the formation of cavalry detachments in the Steppe Ukraine" - and allocated significant money. Marusya used these funds to create the so-called Free Combat Squad - a personal detachment of 580 people armed with an armored platform, two cannons and seven machine guns. Then they managed to get five more armored cars. An employee of the Cheka I. Matusevich reports:

“The view of ... the fighters of the detachment was, to put it mildly, unusual ... There were also officer jackets, girded crosswise with machine-gun belts, and dashingly wrinkled sheep's hats. Someone flaunted in high-quality boots polished to a shine, behind the tops of which Circassian knives gleamed. From under the unbuttoned soldier's and officer's overcoats, civilian jackets and peasant shirts were visible.

And, of course, they all had long messy hair.

A. Ronis-Kantovsky describes Marusya's warriors as follows:

“In long hair and black pelerines ... The muzzles of large Colts stick out from behind the belts, bombs in the pockets. These raiding friends were joined by brothers in bell-bottoms with gold ladies' bracelets on their hands.

Marusya herself appeared astride a white horse - in an astrakhan Kubanka and with a cigarette in her mouth. The Bolshevik M. Roshal, who saw Marusya in Voronezh, recalled:

“A carriage is rushing down the street at breakneck speed. Casually lounging in it, a young brunette sits in it, wearing a kubanka daringly put on to one side, next to him, hanging on the footboard, a broad-shouldered guy in red hussar breeches. The brunette and her bodyguard are hung with weapons. What is not here! Sabers, Mauser in a wooden holster, grenades.

On the black silk banner of Nikiforova’s detachment was the slogan “Anarchy is the mother of order”, the echelons were hung with posters with the inscriptions “Peace to huts - war to palaces”, “The liberation of workers is the work of the workers themselves”, “Power gives birth to parasites! Long live anarchy!" and so on. 

In the next article, we will continue the story about M. Nikiforova.

    It seems that Nikiforova, by virtue of her character, was doomed to a "fun life." If the anarchists hadn’t met her, she would have become “thieves Murka”, they would have written a song about her - only she wouldn’t have “received a pen” in it, but, on the contrary, she herself would have shot lovers and mistresses

    There is such a book by Grigory Klimov, "The Prince of this World," which just describes such characters. I read it at the time, thought it was nonsense. But now that various movements such as homosexuals are gaining momentum, the book reads differently. And it looks like a prophecy about the merging of these characters and their lust for power. Even creepy. hi

    Thank you for the article. I read it with interest. Surprisingly, in Paris, she so easily became a student (best) of Rodin. I first learned about the help of Mayakovsky's mother and sister. Well, the general impression, after I read it, was to think about the past.

    Even the revolutionaries considered them complete lawlessness. The “non-motivators” considered everyone to be enemies of freedom: large-scale production workers, small shopkeepers, the intelligentsia as a parasitic class, and even workers and peasants. For a poor man working for a rich man, according to their logic, supported his strength and power. In addition to the persons indicated in the article, fate brought Maria together with Uncle Vanya himself: this was the underground nickname of Nikolai Muzel - a Czech by birth, an anarchist by conviction and a terrorist by vocation. It was he who instructed Mary on the "true path." Realizing that Mary, offended because of her pathology to the whole world, is a real godsend for the cause of anarchy.
    then through Spain moved to France
    And in Spain, she teaches novice militants the secrets of explosive business, leads her usual life, the Spanish comrades, under her strict guidance, regularly go to work, robbing shops, banks and apartments of wealthy citizens. But it didn’t grow together in Barcelona. During a bank robbery, Maria is seriously injured. Since it is not safe to treat her in Spain, she is smuggled to France.

      By the way, this same cavalry girl Durov received an army salary, she occupied someone else's place in the regiment, but both the service and the war were just a "role-playing game" for her. For all the time she served in the army, she killed only one ... goose! Poor track record. This happened in 1812 after the retreat from Smolensk. Here is what she writes herself:
      Oh, how ashamed I am of writing this! What a shame to admit such inhumanity! With my noble saber I cut off the head of an innocent bird!! It was the first blood I shed in my entire life. Although it is the blood of a bird, but
      Believe me, you who will ever read my Notes, that the memory of her weighs on my conscience!

      That is, in 1815, when she wrote her "Notes", nothing has changed - the goose was and remained her only victim.

        According to statistics, most of the participants in the battles do not kill a single person.

        For example, the Battle of Borodino. On our side, 130 thousand troops participated, and 40 thousand Frenchmen were killed and wounded in the battle. Even if we completely forget the fact that the majority suffered from artillery, it still turns out that the vast majority of our soldiers did not even hurt a single Frenchman in that battle!

    something is wrong with the portraits of the main character. In a prison photograph, it is difficult to imagine a "gypsy-type brunette", moreover, in a number of sources this photograph is presented as Marusya Klimova, "Murka".
    The bust performed by Rodin generally turns out to be "Madame Morla Vicuña 1888."
    I wonder if the date of her birth will remain a mystery to history? Probably, the church books of those places did not survive.
    The mention of narcotic "cocktails" was also hooked - it seems that Gilyarovsky in the description of the Khitrovsky dens mentioned "raspberries" but he gave a recipe that surprised me at the time.
    Uncle Gilyai wrote about beer infused with cigarette butts, knocking the "client" off his feet. I also thought that it was impossible to drink without suspecting something was wrong! Now it is clear what kind of cigarette butts they were. Apparently from an opium den.

After all, you can cut your hair short quickly. And to wash your hair at least every other day - and the time, and the place, and some kind of soap is necessary.

      The monks cut their hair, symbolically giving up their "own" ideas in favor of religious dogmas. In the revolutionary years there is a surge of struggle against dogmas, the denial of any limitation. This is probably reflected in the appearance of the revolutionaries. For example, hippies are also adherents of the revolution, only sexual. In general, the subconscious identification of hair with thoughts logically explains a lot - obstinacy in the way of thinking gives a long mane of an ascetic, and the rejection of thinking in favor of active actions on someone else's orders gives skinheads shaved heads.

    Today, even without the Civil War, we have more than a million drug addicts and more than a million AIDS patients.
    Probably the true number is classified. And no one considered crazy homosexuals at all.
    And what, gentlemen, will happen if, God forbid, it starts?

    Civil wars start for a reason, but because before they start there are more abnormal ones than normal ones. And good and evil change places in our heads....

    In 1918, the gang of Maruska (Maria Nikiforova) in the Uman village of Cherpovody destroyed the family (10 people) of my great-grandfather Wiederman Moses. My grandmother, a 13-year-old child, managed to climb into the gap between the stove and the wall of the hut. Dzerzhinsky’s security officers saved her, taught her and raised her to her feet, eternal memory to them.
