Abstract

On September 7, 1995, Igor Abramov, chairman of the Moscow branch of VOG, the All-Russian Federation of the Deaf, was shot dead by a contract killer outside his flat in the Strogino suburb of Moscow. The often violent world of hearing Moscow had impinged on that of the Moscow deaf community. One of Abramov's last acts was to chair a committee that produced a modest little booklet titled Zhesty (Signs), published only a few days before his death. At the time, the booklet did not attract much attention but, in hindsight, it marks an important stage in the development of the Russian deaf community in the post-Communist era.
