In our words

All invalids (invalidu rozn´) are not equal…
At the head of the line stand the all-important invalids of the Second World War. Behind them we find the invalids of military conflict who have similar entitlements, starting with the participants in squelching anti-communist protests in Hungary and Czechoslovakia, and ending with those wounded in Afghanistan and Chechnya. Further back [in the line] are invalids of military service, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the KGB, and other “forces.” Then invalids of the workplace and those injured “at the hand of others” get their turn. Those accident victims (bytoviki), who are themselves at fault, come in last, along with the congenitally disabled, who have no one at all to blame.
Lev Indolev
Lev Indolev, a journalist and a key figure in the Russian disability rights movement. Although Indolev was writing about post-Soviet Russia, the roots of the differentiation he describes lie in the Soviet period. Lev Indolev, Zhit ́v koliaske. 2001 (To live in a wheelchair) quoted from Disability Studies Quarterly, Vol 29, No 3 2009.
