About Vadim Alexandrovich Narishkin

When he was born, it was Imperial Russia and NOT the Russian Federation.

From a newspaper cutting I have - there is no indication on it as to which newspaper it was cut from nor of the date of publication of this short article:

EXPERIENCES IN RUSSIA - Oxford Man Who Lived Under Imperial Regime

Capt. Narishkin, of Oxford, who lived in Imperial Russia, fought in the Revolution, and finally escaped from the Soviet Union in 1921, described his experiences at a meeting of the Oxford branch of the International Friendship League at the Cadena Cafe, Cornmarket street, last night. It was not until the War that he really had an opportunity of getting to know the Russian peasant, he said, but he found him shrewd and pleasant, with a strain of lofty idealism, and he learnt to like the type. Capt. Narishkin said he thought if the War had never happened the Revolution would never have happened. It found the old regime completely unprepared. The old regime might not have been ideal, but it had been said every regime established by revolution was usually worse than the one it had overthrown. He did not join up with the White Army, and after the Revolution he helped build up the new Russia's territorial army. In 1921 he left Russia because he had lost all faith in the success of the Revolution. Life had become nerve-racking and dirty.
