Later, when he moved to Moscow and will drop in on the evening to his boss, Ivan Moskvin and his wife Sophia Alexandrovna will enclose Yezhov best pieces, calling him a Sparrow: “You’re so small, you need more to eat.” Whether for it, or the inevitability, but when she was arrested together with her husband, tells Yezhov to record in the minutes that the Countess was trying to poison him. It will be shot.

the first time Nikolai Yezhov married in 1921. He turned 26 years old. His wife, Antonina Titova, serious and purposeful girl, was two years younger. The future people’s Commissar of internal Affairs had recently been appointed Commissioner of the Saratov base radiopharmacology, and further career advancement associated with the departure of his wife to Moscow.

Tonya Titov joined the party of the Bolsheviks immediately after the revolution, when he studied at Kazan University. She left school and went to the party technical Secretary to the district Committee of the party. There she met with Yezhov. Three years after the wedding of Antonina went to Moscow and in 1924 he entered the Agricultural Academy, and at the end in 1929 in the graduate school.

Family life do not interfere with Yezhov fun. At the end of 20 years he was addicted to alcohol. Worked intensively and as intensively indulged in sprees. So, with a colleague in the people’s Commissariat of agriculture F. M. Konar (Poleshuk) they are “always drunk in the company of prostitutes, which Konar brought to his home” (from the transcript of the interrogation of Yezhov). Was he a sodomite connection.

After school, went to Odessa and went to work as a typist in a magazine, where he met with a mechanic, and at the age of 17 married him. The marriage did not last long. Soon the clever brisk Genia changed the mechanic to the Director of the publishing house “Economic life” Alexey Gladun. Second husband suddenly switched to the diplomatic service. Eugene accompanied by his wife in London and in Berlin. There she met Isaac Babel.

in the Autumn of 1928 Eugene Gladun returned to Moscow and joined the editorial Board of “Peasant newspaper” typist. When a young, but promising all-powerful head of the Central Committee of Ogrespeedtree nick Yezhov met her in Sochi, she never hesitated.

an Easy temper Eugene was in no hurry RAto stavitsa with old friends and did not hesitate to forge new relationships. Among her lovers were beyond Babel Otto Schmidt, Semyon Uritsky, Mikhail Sholokhov.

Yezhov was not behind his wife’s intimate entertainment. According to the memoirs of Zinaida Glikina, a close friend of Eugenie, “he was ready to establish an intimate relationship with anyone, at least random woman, do not settle with time, nor place, nor circumstance. N. I. Yezhov at different times in the ugly drunk molested, trying to persuade him to cohabit, to all women that his apartment staff. He used his safe house of the NKVD in Moscow on Gogolevsky Boulevard as the most convenient place for Dating and intimate relations with women.”

In September 1936, Ezhov was appointed people’s Commissar of internal Affairs of the USSR. His status and occupation have changed considerably. Mass repression, hundreds of thousands were executed on his orders, people could not help but affect the psyche of a people’s Commissar – alcoholic booze, cocaine and drunk orgies become permanent.

Room writer auditioned, and when Eugene came to visit, all their words and actions were recorded and logged. Ezhov gave the transcript that the stenographer faithfully wrote: “go to the bathroom”, “go to bed”, etc.
