Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug Senator Eduard Isakov disowned his daughter Diana after her interview about leaving Russia and speaking out against the military operation in Ukraine. The 49-year-old senator wrote on Telegram that he stopped communicating with his daughter, as he believes that she “sold her father, family, Motherland and left Russia.” The senator called his daughter a “traitor”.
“She expresses her position against the conduct of a special military operation, against the policy of her country. Apparently, she received funds from these media, in other words & mdash; sold her father, family, Rodinu and left Russia. It’s hard to find words when your daughter turns out to be a traitor… From the moment I found out that she has an anti-Russian position, we don’t communicate, I don’t provide for her, I don’t provide housing, & mdash; he wrote. The parliamentarian also stressed that he has not been raising his daughter, who is now 25 years old, from the age of three.
In April, Diana Isakova took part in a protest against Russian actions in Ukraine, her father continued. When he found out about this, he tried to explain to her the need for a military operation, “offered to visit the places of military glory of the Soviet people, read about the history of his country,” and also go to the Donbass as a volunteer.
The senator's daughter said in an interview with the BBC that she left Russia because of her position on military operations in Ukraine. According to the girl, in March she participated in a rally in Sochi, and in April she distributed anti-war leaflets, because of which she was detained by “people in civilian clothes” and taken to the police for questioning, and then summoned to the FSB. Isakova said that she had conflicts with her father, including because of her political views. After she distributed the leaflets, Isakov, in her words, “tried to expose” her “guilty, traitor”, called “the enemy of the family”; and “an enemy of the people”, and also demanded that she move out of his house in Sochi, where she had lived for the past five years.
According to Isakova, information about the detention of her daughter reached her father in the evening after interrogation at the FSB. “I found out that he didn’t just find out, but an incredible number of officials called him, and as a result [Chairman of the Federation Council Valentina] Matvienko told him about it,” — said Isakova.
The actions of the senator were commented on by State Duma deputy and TV presenter Yevgeny Popov. «Repudiate children— last thing. Whatever they are, — he wrote in Telegram.
Isakov has been representing the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug in the Federation Council since 2015, and is a member of the regional political council of United Russia.
