译文

我们听说过那些在欧洲引起轰动而具有争议的活动家们。今天我们将去乌克兰的基辅,那里自去年11月动乱开始,政府势力和反对派组织间的冲突已经达到暴力顶峰。34岁的塔提亚娜·车娜沃尔是一位反政府激进分子,乌克兰人对她看法不一。作为一位反对派网站的调查记者,她以工作中行事出奇冒险而闻名。但是去年12月,塔提亚娜自己成为了冒险故事的主角,她的车被逼驶离了公路,之后遭到残忍的攻击。上个月,Outlook节目的露西·阿什去基辅见到了她和她的家人。

乌斯提姆得到一个带灯的小滑板车,他一圈一圈的(踩着它)走。他很像塔提亚娜。

噢,是的,他们性格非常相像。

我刚到达塔提亚娜在首都基辅的郊外的家。在她家客厅,车娜3岁的儿子乌斯提姆坚决地卷起了地毯,好在房间里踩着滑板车溜来溜去,奶奶纳塔丽娅紧紧盯着他看。

我告诉自己:“汤娅,笔直开。别离开公路。”但撞过来的这辆车大概价值4万美元。于是我意识到,如果这么贵的一辆车故意撞我,肯定有人花了大价钱买我的命。
