Ksenia Bezuglova — Creator of the project “City for all”. In her wheelchair, only last year in Moscow, she traveled more than many in my life have gone on foot. She drove all the Boulevard ring, most of the downtown streets of Moscow, checked the accessibility of railway stations. Who of you when the last time was in the Tretyakov gallery? But someone had to bypass it completely? I never think to get around it much easier. And Yes, it was all done with one purpose: to check the availability of any of these places for the disabled.
To feel that I helped a movie that I recently saw: t in some small town somew in Scandinavia for wheelchair users organized a game very similar to our “Watch”, only moved, they are not machines, and their wheelchairs around (!) the city. Know that the jokes on this topic are dangerous, but I still tried to imagine this in Russia… I don’t know that you drew in my head, but a couple of years ago I would compare it like this: the DTM championship against trip in the rainy autumn forest on the UAZ with the winch.
I once was with her in the RAID last year. The guys then checked and tried to fix problem areas on Maroseyka. And it managed to achieve the streets for people with disabilities was fully accessible. Then said the activists, some entrepreneurs even called them for advice on how and what to do better. Without feminine charm and perseverance of Xenia t is clearly not done. But she says it is the merit of the project “City for all”.
But not everyone was so friendly. Was told that some of the most ardent representatives of the mountains to the disabled with his fists to lash out tried. Really, think, some kind of left lass its own terms to a proud man puts. But such has found justice, it’s something good…
It is not good to say, of course, but t is a definite plus in that situation, which she got after a car accident. Not for her, of course, though she admits that the accident helped her to rethink life and to others. We definitely don’t have enough people who would be so happy and from the heart would help the disabled. But back to the racing metaphor, it turns out that Xenia is building the track. It for Moscow as Bernie Ecclestone for the “Formula-1”.

“Relation of man to people with disabilities to determine the level of culture and education. Moscow in recent years in this respect has made a huge step forward,” likes to say Xenia.
And after meeting her I began to look at the places w the carriage drive would have been impossible. And interestingly, over time, I notice that these places are becoming less and less. The results of this a work project or a consequence General improvement in the standard of living in Moscow, I don’t know. But Ksenia still have to say thank you!
