90,000 story of a waitress who escaped from the USSR by swimming

In January 1979, a girl in a red bikini was drawn on a beach on the outskirts of Sydney. It seems to be nothing particularly remarkable – there is enough of such goodness. But this one looked completely dumbfounded, and besides, she hardly spoke English. The beauty turned to the first person she met and explained on her fingers that she needed to get to the police station. There it turned out that the girl’s name was Liliana Gasinskaya and she escaped from the steamer to ask for political asylum.

Soviet cruise liner Leonid Sobinov anchored in Pyrmont Bay. Late in the evening, the waitress Lilya Gasinskaya, leaving all her belongings in the cabin, got out through the window and swam to the shore. It took about forty minutes. When her absence was found on the ship, they immediately sent a telegram to the Soviet embassy. They tried to find the girl, but all efforts were in vain – she was hidden by employees of the local newspaper Daily Mirror.

In the USSR, this incident was diligently kept silent, and in Australia Lilya became a real celebrity, her photo was circulated in all local newspapers.For the outfit in which she set foot on the Green Continent, the journalists nicknamed the former waitress “the girl in the red bikini.”

All publications went out of their way to do interviews with the fugitive. But the employees of the Daily Mirror, who provided her with what is called first aid, kept her whereabouts secret while the authorities decided the fate of Lily.

Competitors were biting their elbows, and the Daily Mirror broke the bank by publishing one exclusive material after another. In an interview, an 18-year-old girl said what prompted her to a daring escape: “I was 14 when I began to understand what communism is and what its purpose is.It became clear to me that there was only one lie and propaganda around, and I began to hate it … Why did I decide to flee to Australia? I saw a photograph in a magazine and realized that this is the most beautiful place on earth. ”

Surprisingly, Gasinskaya was granted political refugee status. The opposition pounced on the authorities. Now, they say, the question of obtaining refugee status depends on how a person looks in a bikini? Double standards were clearly traced: at that time, even those migrants who had relatives in Australia were sewn away.The Minister of Immigration retorted: how can you deport a person who escaped from the USSR – the “evil empire” ?!

Despite the loud statements that she wanted to escape from the communist regime and find freedom in another country, “away from lies and propaganda,” the girl looked little like a dissident. Her arguments about the need for asylum can hardly be called convincing: the fugitive declared that she did not want to live in the USSR, because she was bored of going to Soviet shops.What was the persecution by the authorities at home, she could not clearly explain.

Lilya intended to settle in Australia for a long time, so she had to look for work. She took the simplest path: she signed a contract for 15 thousand dollars with the erotic magazine Penthouse and starred naked for him. On the cover was her photo with a loud headline: “Girl in a red bikini – no bikini.” After that, she worked as a model, DJ and starred in TV series.

Quite quickly, the adventurer arranged her personal life.Her first choice was the Daily Mirror photographer, who left the family for her sake. And in 1984, the girl married Australian millionaire Ian Hyson. After six years, they parted, and Lily’s trail was lost. It is known that she left Australia and presumably moved to England.

The captain of the liner “Leonid Sobinov”, after the escape of Gasinskaya, was written off to the shore – it was considered that he did not pay due attention to educational work among the crew members.

Declassified case of the “girl in a red bikini”

Author: Eduard Andryushchenko

The top news in 1979 in Australia was the flight of a Ukrainian woman Liliana Gasinskaya from a Soviet ship docked in a Sydney port.Journalists from different countries still remember the story of the “girl in a red bikini” (such a nickname the runaway got). Most modern publications translate what Australian newspapers once wrote. The “Karati” project has studied and for the first time published materials of the criminal case of Gasinskaya from the archives of the Security Service of Ukraine, and also talked with the investigator who was in charge of her case.

Komsomol members in the ocean

On January 19, 1979, the Soviet liner Leonid Sobinov was somewhere off the coast of Australia.On the ship, as in any enterprise, there was a Komsomol committee – that day it had a meeting. All ten participants were well aware of which issue on the agenda would be the main one. They belonged to “disassemble” the act of the Komsomol member, 18-year-old flight attendant Liliana Gasinskaya. For several days in a row, there was only talk among the crew about Gasinskaya.

“It is bitter and insulting that a person like Gasinskaya was born in a Soviet country, for which Soviet people shed blood and sacrificed their lives in the name of a bright and wonderful life, for a happy and wonderful childhood for all of us, and in particular for Gasinskaya.For peace on earth, our parents shed their blood, gave their lives. Gasinskaya’s treacherous act amazed me, amazed everyone who is on duty here, far from their homeland, from their relatives, ”said the secretary of the Komsomol organization, comrade Y. Makhlaichuk.

N. Fomina called Gasinskaya “an inferior and useless person for society.” Others spoke in much the same spirit. The girl herself could not answer anything – she was not at the meeting. Unfortunately, the printed minutes of the Komsomol meeting will not tell what the Komsomol members of “Leonid Sobinov” were really thinking about at that moment.Did you really hate and despise the stewardess, or deep down wished her luck? Perhaps they themselves would like to be in her place, but, nevertheless, the committee unanimously adopted a decision:

– to recommend to the general Komsomol meetings to exclude Gasinskaya from the Komsomol – there could be no doubt that they would do so,
– to “disassemble” the act of the flight attendant already in a wider circle – at a general meeting,
– to inform the family and Odessa Technical School No. 1, which the girl recently graduated from.

Expulsion from the Komsomol ranks was a serious punishment for a Soviet person. As a rule, this put an end to a career. But Gasinskaya didn’t care.

She was already as if in a parallel world, in which there was no Komsomol and fees with public persecution. Ukrainian Gasinskaya fled from “Leonid Sobinov” to Australia and did not intend to return.

Asylum, political, request

A few days earlier, on January 15, the ship was docked in the Sydney port.As the crew members later said, at five in the morning the senior flight attendant Khongodorova walked around the staff cabins and woke up those who were supposed to leave for their shift. Gasinskaya was among them, but her bed in the SV-82 cabin was empty.

Gasinskaya’s sleepy roommates in the cabin – Galanova and Bondarenko – could not explain anything. At the same time, Tatyana Bondarenko remembered that the night before Liliana did not go to the party for the crew, referring to the fact that she had a headache, and remained in the cabin.She has not been seen since.

Searches throughout the airliner also yielded nothing. Soon the captain and his assistants knew about Gasinskaya, as well as the consul of the USSR in Sydney and the ambassador in Canberra. At 9 in the morning, an alarm was announced on the liner and the entire crew was assembled, reporting the disappearance. There were few options for what happened, and escape seemed the most realistic.

It looked a little strange that all of the flight attendant’s belongings remained in the cabin, even money and documents. Among other things, a sheet was found in the cabin – the letterhead of the Black Sea Shipping Company, with the English words written in Gasinskaya’s hand and the translation:

asylum – refuge, shelter (shelter)

political …

ask – ask

pray – ask

prayer – request

There was no doubt: the flight attendant was preparing to flee, intending in advance to ask for political asylum.

There was a ghostly hope that the situation would be resolved – there was time for that until the evening, while the ship was in Sydney. The crew members and the KGB employee assigned to the liner toured the port area.

“Have you seen this girl here?” – they asked people, showing a photo of Gasinskaya.

But the search was in vain. The disappearance of a person from “Leonid Sobinov” was reported to the local migration service and the police, but they were in no hurry to do anything. For some reason, the Soviet consulate also refused to join the search. On the evening of January 15, the ship left the port and went to Melbourne without a young flight attendant.

It should be recalled that the citizens of the USSR had almost no opportunity to emigrate. The Soviet government allowed this only in exceptional cases: for example, if a person had relatives abroad, and even then not always.Despite all the efforts of propaganda, which consistently portrayed the horrors of life in the “West, which is rotting,” there were always many who wanted to leave the “communist paradise” forever. Some were guided by political motives, others by economic ones. Some were so eager to emigrate that they were ready to break the law. Some crossed the border illegally by land or water, hoping that the border guards would not notice them. The second, “defectors”, ended up in another country, for example, as tourists or on a business trip for work, and refused to come back.Sometimes it came to extreme cases – for example, the hijacking of aircraft in order to escape with them.

The KGB department in the Odessa region soon opened a criminal case against Liliana Gasinskaya. The materials of the case are now stored in the archives of the SBU and formed the basis of this article. The investigation was entrusted to a group of investigators led by 29-year-old senior lieutenant Nikolai Shumilo.

Now Nikolay Shumilo is a well-known lawyer, Doctor of Law, Professor of the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv.He agreed to answer the questions that arose during the study of the case.

Most of the famous fugitives were prosecuted for treason (Article 56 of the Criminal Code of the Ukrainian SSR – punishment: from 10 to 15 years in prison or execution). Gasinskaya was charged only with illegal travel abroad (part 1 of Article 75 – from one to three years in prison).

“When pre-qualifying this act in the decision to initiate a criminal case, the investigator takes into account the nature of the act committed and the personality of the fugitive,” explains Nikolai Shumilo.- “Treason to the Motherland” was usually accused of persons who, in the foreign media and in public speeches, admitted, according to the standards of the then existing, hostile attitude towards the Soviet state. The very young, inexperienced Gasinskaya clearly did not fit these parameters. Therefore, it was decided to initiate a criminal case in accordance with the committed act in accordance with the requirements of Article 75 of the Criminal Code of the Ukrainian SSR. ”

In the end, if it became known about some serious subversive activities of the former flight attendant – her actions could be re-qualified to another article.

“Swimming with sharks”

“I’ll kill myself if they try to send me home”, “A girl in a bikini escaped from a“ red ”cruise ship”, “Russian runaway: why I risked my life”, “Welcome, Lillian”. Leading Australian newspapers on January 16-17 came out with such loud headlines and Gasinskaya’s smiling face on the front pages. At the same time, the fugitive was shown on local television.

The girl told reporters that she hates Russia, that is, the USSR.At the age of 14, I realized that communism was a lie, and began to dream of escape. It was for this that she studied to be a waitress and went to work on the liner.

“I thought about this [escape] every minute, every day,” she told about the months she spent at Leonid Sobinov.

On the evening of January 14, Liliana, while everyone was at the party, got up on the bed, reached the window and jumped through it into the water. She was wearing a swimsuit and a ring on her finger, nothing with her. According to the materials of the investigation, the fugitive left things so that her disappearance would not be noticed for as long as possible.

“Dressed in a red swimsuit, she swam for about 40 minutes, not paying attention to patrols from members of the Russian team and searchlights directed into the sea from the ship,” – this is how the newspapers described the way to the shore. One more detail added sharpness: in the bay, which the girl was crossing, white sharks were allegedly found.

At midnight, almost unconscious, Gasinskaya with bloody wounds – while fleeing, she cut her legs and body – was found on the coast of the Sydney suburb – Pyrmont by the photographer of the local university Bill Green, who was walking with his dog.

“When I approached her, she ran her hands over her body and asked in broken English:“ Do you have any clothes? ” – Greene later recalled.

The man gave Liliana a shelter at his home. The next day, she already spoke with Australian officials, formally asking for political asylum. She also gave interviews to journalists. The fugitive agreed to pose for the newspapers in the same red bikini.

The surname of the Ukrainian woman was probably too exotic for Australia: in the first publications she is transliterated as Gasinskayoy and Gasinskayov.But the country remembered her by the nickname “the girl in the red bikini.”

Girl from Luhansk region

What The Red bikini girl tells the Australian media was closely watched by the Odessa KGB. The escape was investigated there. Gasinskaya herself was formally put on the wanted list and a preventive measure was chosen in advance – detention. In an interview, the defendant in the case told herself another article, but not treason, but “spreading deliberately false fabrications that defame the Soviet state and social system” (Article 187-1 of the Criminal Code – up to three years in prison).

“Gasinskaya, in her answers to reporters’ questions during her speech on television, showed herself to be a frivolous and narrow-minded person, which suggests that the contents of her statements were prepared by a special service or an anti-Soviet organization,” investigator Shumilo reported in February 1979.

The investigation did not rule out that foreign special services organized not only interviews, but also the escape itself. At the same time, Gasinskaya did not possess any secret information, as evidenced by a separate certificate in the case file.As Nikolai Shumilo now explains, during the Cold War, an information campaign around the escape could have a certain propaganda effect in the West.

Dozens of witnesses were interrogated – relatives, crew members, when in June “Leonid Sobinov” returned to Odessa, classmates from the school, casual acquaintances from many cities – their contacts were recorded in the notebook of the fugitive who remained in the cabin. Gradually, the following picture emerged before the investigators.

Liliana was born in Voroshilovsk, Lugansk region – now Alchevsk, although the name of the city at the time of issue of the document is recorded in the passport – Kommunarsk.

When the girl was a month old, her parents divorced. The child grew up with his mother and bore her maiden name – Baronetskaya. Later, the mother’s second husband adopted Liliana, and the girl received his surname – Gasinskaya. At the time of the investigation, the mother headed a village club in the Luhansk region, and her husband directed the folk choir at the same club. In an interview, Liliana called her parents a musician and actress.

As a child and adolescent, Gasinskaya was engaged in gymnastics, dancing and pantomime, loved English and books on marine topics.When the girl was 9 years old, she was hit by a bus – the injuries were severe, but she managed to recover. Because of the triples in the school report card, the dream of studying at the university in foreign philology, in order to get a job abroad, Liliana had to be postponed for later. Some friend advised me to first enroll as a flight attendant at the Odessa school, which she did.

The future fugitive was not interested in politics, did not listen to foreign radio, the authorities did not criticize. But sometimes in conversations slipped remarks about a better life abroad.In addition, there were foreigners among Gasinskaya’s friends – there were enough of them in the port of Odessa: sailors from Greece, Italy and the United States, Iraqi cadets. For example, Liliana bought fashionable imported things from them, to which she was clearly not indifferent.

School graduates who expressed a desire to work on foreign flights were carefully checked. If they found any, even small compromising evidence – for example, “anti-Soviet” among relatives – they were not allowed abroad. Some girls from the Gasinskaya group were denied exit visas.And they gave her.

“I am leaving the ship. Are you helping? ”

This was Liliana’s first overseas voyage. On October 1, 1978, “Leonid Sobinov” departed from Odessa, heading for the UK. There, in the port of Southampton, passengers who were transported by the Mediterranean and Red Seas, the Indian Ocean to Australia and further to the islands of Oceania were supposed to board the ship. The operator was a British travel agency, which rented a Soviet ship together with the crew. A large number of Soviet liners operated according to this scheme.

When “Leonid Sobinov” received passengers, Gasinskaya was appointed a lift attendant. According to the documents, she worked very badly – she could not go to work in the morning or go to bed in the afternoon. But most of all, the management was annoyed by the girl’s non-working contacts with foreign passengers. This was strictly prohibited on Soviet liners.

“At the same time, as I learned, she began to meet at night on the passenger decks with one of the foreigners and kiss,” said the captain of the ship Konstantin Nikitin during interrogation.

Liliana made comments, but she replied that she wanted to improve her English, and defiantly continued in the same spirit. She was twice transferred to other positions, just to keep her away from foreigners. In the end, it became Gasinskaya’s responsibility to clean the crew cabins. But every time she found opportunities to meet foreigners – both passengers and staff. A scandal arose with an Englishman who worked as a musician on the ship. First, the girl went to his cabin, and then the man said that his things and money were missing, and he had no one to suspect except Liliana.She denied everything.

The crew members and passengers during emotional conversations, judging by the materials of interrogations, heard from Gasinskaya, for example, the following: “What a pity that the Russians won the Great Patriotic War. How I hate them! ” Liliana called herself either a Ukrainian – one of the foreigners, did not understand her, not knowing who the Ukrainians were – or a Polish woman who has relatives in Poland and dreams of living there. Her mother called it her daughter’s fantasy.

“I don’t remember exactly what date Gasinskaya … pulled out a book from under her jacket and began to read from this book that the Soviet Union allegedly lacks toilet paper, because the paper is used to publish literature and works of the classics of Marxism-Leninism.In a word, this text was anti-Soviet, ”said Tatyana Bondarenko, Liliana’s roommate in the cabin, during interrogation. The book, the author of which was some emigrant, was allegedly given to her by foreigners on a ship.

The crew members, from the captain to the flight attendants, began to ask Gasinskaya in plain text if she was planning an escape. Answering in the negative, she added various arguments: either she assured that she would not leave her parents, then she referred to her poor knowledge of foreign languages.

But the stewardess did not hide her plans from foreigners on board.And even when they didn’t ask anything. The Melbourne newspaper The Age published an article by journalist Bob Millington, who was on Leonid Sobinov at the same time as the future fugitive. Another passenger told him over a beer in the bar of the liner about the “Russian” – the flight attendant Lillian, who allegedly told him in bad English: “I am leaving the ship. Are you helping? ” This man did not dare to help. Bob said a few days later he heard a similar story from another passenger.

The captain was not convinced by Gasinskaya’s assurances that she was not going to flee.On December 6, Nikitin sent a radio message about the rebellious flight attendant to the leadership of the Black Sea Shipping Company. He asked permission to write it off from Leonid Sobinov and send it home. The shipping company gave the go-ahead. Gasinskaya was to be transferred to a Soviet ship, which would pass side by side and follow to the USSR. But such a vessel has not yet existed.

Liliana was denied the right to go ashore in ports. The watch service was warned about the problem worker, and the security officer and the “ship asset” had to look after her.Before Sydney, “Leonid Sobinov” stopped at another Australian port – Fremantle, and the captain’s mate, contrary to the decision of his leader, let Liliana go to the city. However, not one, but with other crew members. However, soon the senior of the group brought the girl back – she tried to break away from the group.

Then there was the evening of January 14 and the morning of the 15th, which we know about from the interview with Gasinskaya and the testimonies of the crew members.

Unofficial version

Svetlana Karaffa-Korbut learned that her former classmate had run away during interrogation “on Bebel,” now Jewish street, that is, in the Odessa KGB department.The girls did not communicate much, and she did not tell anything interesting to the investigator.

“I went to the interrogation with my mother. She was waiting for me on the street. It was a terrible institution then, ”Karaffa-Korbut recalls now.

Now Svetlana, as then, lives in Odessa. We contacted and chatted with her.

Svetlana Karaffa-Korbut said that in 1979-1981 she worked on the ship “Russia”. And with her – some of the former members of the crew of “Leonid Sobinov”. From them, the woman has repeatedly heard stories about how Gasinskaya fled.These stories are somewhat different not only from the interviews of the “girl in the red bikini”, but also from the interrogation protocols.

Firstly, there was no forty-minute swim. Indeed, according to the version that Svetlana recounted, “Leonid Sobinov” that evening was not in the roadstead at sea, but was moored at the pier. Where Gasinskaya jumped out of the window.

Crew cabins were located at waterline level. Portholes went out onto the pier, – explains the interlocutor. The case file does not specify where the ship was and where Liliana jumped from the window.

Gasinskaya could have come up with an escape by swimming for more drama. But this idea could not have arisen from her, but from the journalists. But in this case, it is not clear why it was necessary to jump in one swimsuit.

At the pier, according to the version voiced by Karaffa-Korbut, some men picked up the fugitive woman, put her in a car and quickly left. That is, someone supposedly knew about the planned escape and was waiting for Gasinskaya. According to the crew members, this someone is the Sydney newspapermen. Some of them were on the liner, heard from Liliana about her aspiration, and she was more than frank with foreigners, and decided to help, at the same time creating a sensation for her publication.However, there is no evidence for this and the version is based only on assumptions. But in her favor is the fact that for some time the “girl in a red bikini” lived in the house of the Daily Mirror journalist John Wells, and it was this publication that was the first to know about the escape. Wells at the same time became her official guardian.

If someone from the ship saw Gasinskaya being taken away, it means that they knew about her escape immediately. But, we will remind, during interrogations everyone said that they noticed the disappearance only in the morning. Svetlana Karaffa-Korbut offers her completely logical explanation, but certainly not the only possible one:

“The one who was on watch at the gangway could not fail to see the escape, but had no right to leave his post.He must first call the ship’s command. But he could not get through, because the management was also at the holiday. And to take responsibility and admit that he saw the flight and did not interfere with her – this is guaranteed to fly (from the ship or the shipping company in general). ”

A similar version was found in another source. The author of the alba-ruthenia01 blog on Livejournal, a resident of Belarus named Natalya, in her article “Bastard in a red bikini” claims that she worked on another liner together with a former member of the crew of “Leonid Sobinov” – Vladimir Seleznev.Her story, with reference to Seleznev’s words, in general terms coincides with what Svetlana Karaffa-Korbut says: a jump to the pier, a car, meeting journalists.

But there is another mystery in this story. Tatyana Bondarenko, who was Gasinskaya’s cabin neighbor, found there a note that belonged to the fugitive. According to her, on a piece of paper were the words (in Russian): “Do not be upset about our business, everything will be fine, you will not receive the task soon, than you will be upset, a trusted person will approach you.”The strangely constructed phrase suggests the idea of ​​outside help in organizing the escape, and possibly the participation of the special services.

The second person who saw the note is the first mate Leonid Barabanov. Bondarenko gave him a piece of paper, deciding that it would help the investigation. Barabanov later assured that the text was different: “On your long journey, interest will come to you, but it may be delayed.” It looks like the result of fortune-telling that Gasinskaya could have fun with. At least that’s how the mate commented.

Barabanov put the note itself in his notebook. When the liner returned to Odessa, the piece of paper was lost somewhere. Investigators arranged a confrontation between Barabanov and Bondarenko. Each insisted on his own. The rest of the crew knew about the note only from these two. His word against her word – without the note itself, the KGB could not find out who was right, and this topic came to naught by itself.

“I analyzed this episode in detail. Basically, there was no reason not to believe the witnesses who found this document (Tatiana Bondarenko), ”says Nikolai Shumilo.

And the captain’s mate, the former investigator continues, just had motives to come up with a version of “fortune-telling” in order to avoid responsibility for having “missed” a pre-arranged escape.


Investigators in the Gasinskaya case “knocked” over two dozen foreigners with whom she crossed paths to register the KGB. It turned out that no one came into the field of view of the special services as a possible agent or employee of foreign intelligence services. They searched their parents, but found nothing.

Among the things that remained in Gasinskaya’s cabin were several magazines and books in English. Their investigation had to study to see if the content had anything to do with the escape. For example, do they contain any anti-Sovietism that pushed the flight attendant to a desperate act. The KGB invited a professional translator to read Western publications. The annotations signed by her remained in the file. Before fleeing, Liliana read magazines dedicated to the then super popular group ABBA and the young Hollywood star John Travolta, as well as the books-albums “Rod Stewart” and “At the Top of Popularity in Contemporary Music” Probably Top of the Pops.

“The investigation was very thorough then. We studied everything: what the person did, how she was brought up, her character, hobbies, what she was interested in, what she read, in order to substantiate the motives for committing a wrongful act. … Secondly, perhaps there were some notes, notes, ”recalls Nikolai Shumilo.

Since all this had nothing to do with the case, the publications were burned, about which they drew up an act. In April, that is, about three months after her escape, Gasinskaya’s parents and girlfriends began to receive her letters.The Chekists confiscated all correspondence. In her letters, Liliana told how she got settled in Australia and asked her relatives for forgiveness.

On June 30, “Leonid Sobinov” returned to Odessa. Investigators questioned witnesses from the liner and searched Gasinskaya’s cabin. The KGB decided that there was no point in continuing the investigation without the fugitive herself. Therefore, the investigation was suspended “pending the establishment of the whereabouts and arrest of the accused Gasinskaya Liliana Leonidovna.”

Striving for a “beautiful life”

The Australian authorities said that there are no grounds for granting Gasinskaya political asylum – she is by no means a dissident.But she was given refugee status. The Australians were divided on this decision. Some sincerely sympathized with the fugitive, others noticed that thousands of people from war-torn Vietnam were denied refugee status, although they, unlike the flight attendant, were in real danger.

The Soviet press loved to write about those fugitives or legal emigrants who could not arrange their new life and suffered from lack of money. But at home, unlike the Australian ones, they were silent about the Gasinskaya newspaper – this story was not suitable for propaganda.

For the first few months, Liliana went to English courses, then to a model school.

A beautiful story of escape, together with her attractive appearance, made Gasinskaya a popular heroine of the Australian tabloids. There were enough reasons to remember the Ukrainian woman again and again: the press, for example, reported that the Daily Mirror photographer had become her lover and abandoned his wife and children.

In 1979, the men’s magazine Penthouse was launched in Australia. Gasinskaya was the ideal candidate for the role of the cover girl for the launch episode.”Lillian: a girl in a red bikini – no bikini” – this was the title of the main story of the issue. For an erotic photo shoot, Gasinskaya received $ 15,000 – this was the then average salary of an Australian for a year and a half.

And in Odessa, meanwhile, those who turned out to be “extreme” were punished. The crew of “Leonid Sobinov” was disbanded, most of the workers were transferred to short, less prestigious routes – mainly the Black Sea. This collective responsibility was probably aimed at reducing the number of “defectors”.If one member of the Soviet group abroad suspected another of intending to leave, or he was imprudent to admit it, then it was in his own interest to inform the KGB officer who accompanied the team.

Nikolai Shumilo recalls that he informed the directorate of the Black Sea Shipping Company about the suspicious story with the lost note. Barabanov and Garbuz, according to him, probably “got it”.

A regional commission came to the Odessa school to investigate how matters stand with political education there.Raisa Goldwart, the master of the group where Liliana studied, was given a strict penalty for not being able to “timely recognize Gasinskaya’s character traits and establish her true face and immoral lifestyle.” She had to follow the new students more closely, including, in her free time, give them more lectures on the inevitable victory of communism.

In 1980 Gasinskaya was deprived of her Soviet citizenship. In subsequent years, the life of the “girl in a red bikini” was a job as a dancer in a nightclub, several years of marriage with a successful businessman Ian Hyson and an unsuccessful attempt to start his own cosmetics business.

“… it was established that Gasinskaya, constantly living in Sydney, leads an immoral lifestyle, appears in pornographic magazines, works in nightclubs. He does not carry out activities hostile to the Soviet state, ”wrote the Odessa KGB in 1987.

The last document in the case is the order to close it. After all, the five-year statute of limitations set for the articles that incriminated Gasinskaya has long since expired.

The final conclusion of the investigation about the escape from the cabin of “Leonid Sobinov” read: “the motives that prompted Gasinskaya to illegally go abroad were her political naivety, frivolity, moral decline, desire for a” beautiful life “and unwillingness to work at the same time.”

From the comments of Nikolai Shumilo, it becomes clear that even today he does not rule out the version of the involvement of Western special services. However, it has not been legally proven, and therefore remains only a version.

“If the special services are working, it is very difficult to find direct evidence and blame them for something. They work skillfully – sometimes we cannot always get to the bottom of the truth with our procedural and operational tools, ”he says.

A little more time passed, and Soviet citizens were allowed to emigrate wherever they wanted – even to Australia.Gasinskaya herself in 1990 for some reason changed Sydney to London, where she still lives. She gave birth to two sons, brought her parents from Luhansk region closer to her. It seems that the scandalous fame of the “girl in a red bikini” is tired – for a long time she has been ignoring the questions of journalists who still remember that story. Our message to Liliana also remained unanswered.

Waitress Liliana Gasinskaya, who sailed from a Soviet ship to Australia, married a millionaire

In London, Gasinskaya remarried and gave birth to two sons.Photo:

Evening January 14, 1979. A girl in a red bikini climbs onto the Sydney Harbor pier in the Pyrmont area and rushes to two passers-by with a dog. The stranger looks so-so: she is limping (sprained ankle), the whole body is covered with abrasions and bruises – for half an hour the stranger tried to climb onto the hard pier. “Help, I need help. I escaped from the Soviet ship, they are chasing me. I need to go to the police! ” the bather pleads in broken English.

The beauty (and the girl is really beautiful) is put in a car and taken to the police station.The news about the Russian runaway immediately leaks into the newspapers, and the next morning the Daily Mirror comes out with the cover: “Pretty Woman Runs from the ‘Red’ Liner.” Inside – an interview with Liliana Gasinskaya, which will be immediately taken away by major publications around the world.

“I was 14 when I began to understand what communism is,” Gasinskaya explained to reporters, clearly trying to please. – It became clear to me that there was only one lie and propaganda around, and I slowly began to hate him. Why did you decide to flee to Australia? I saw a photograph in a magazine and realized that this is the most beautiful place on earth. “

In Sydney in any way

Liliana Gasinskaya was born in Odessa in the family of an actress and musician. The parents were sure that the heiress would also become an artist. But at the age of 15, Lilya unexpectedly entered the Odessa Naval School. Then she completed an internship in the UK. The girl had a goal – to get on a ship bound for Australia. And on the eve of her 19th birthday, she was enrolled in the staff as a waitress on the ship “Leonid Sobinov”.

Lilya decided that she needed to run before the ship moored in Sydney: there, the attention to the crew would increase.The girl made an attempt to rush away in the parking lot in Fremantle, but at the last moment one of the employees noticed the suspiciously fussing waitress, and Lily did not dare. Sydney remained.

An 18-year-old girl with a red bathing suit immediately became a heroine in Western media.

Love with the photographer

On the night of her escape, the entire crew was busy serving the party on board.

“I put on a red bikini and left a ring on my finger. I knew it was useless to take something with me, otherwise they would catch me, ”she said.”I climbed onto the bed, squeezed through the porthole and jumped into the water.”

The girl rowed to the shore for 40 minutes. She knew that there were man-eating white sharks in the bay, but she tried not to think about it.

“I just mentally counted the covered meters and thought that soon the shore would begin, and another life would begin there. No queues and stew, just cocktails, beach and freedom, ”she said later. There was another fear – weightier than deadly shark bites – that she would be chased.

There was no chase, but in the morning the Soviet diplomatic corps announced to the Australian authorities that it was demanding that the USSR citizen be returned to the ship.The citizen herself at this time was hiding in the house of the Daily Mirror photographer. The editors decided not to give away the Russian sensation for anything. But the girl did not waste time either: three weeks after she became a world star (many major publications wrote about Gasinskaya), it surfaced that she had an affair with a newspaper photographer. For the sake of the “girl in a red bikini” the photographer left his wife and children … It is unlikely that this fact became decisive when deciding on political asylum for Gasinskaya. Rather, a ready-made propaganda picture played a role: Russians are ready to flee from the horrors of communism almost naked!

Liliana graced the cover of an erotic magazine.

The first Russian on the cover of Penthouse

Usually, political refugees after their “march” to the West do not hold the attention of the media for long. There are enough other sensations as well. But the red swimsuit of the Russian so excited the imagination of the Australians that a month later Liliana graced the cover of Penthouse. The material, full of candid shots, was titled “Girl in a red bikini – no bikini.” For nude shooting, the fugitive received 15 thousand dollars. Liliana said that, drunk, she went from store to store and bought everything… In time, the lover stopped the young lady who was crazy about money. He, having connected all his connections, promoted his beloved into show business. Liliana tried herself as a disco dancer, DJ, actress of soap operas (I wonder if her parents were happy?). She starred in the Australian television series The Young Doctors and Arcade.

White Mercedes and a dog

Gasinskaya bought a white Mercedes, set up a two-level apartment with her husband in a good area of ​​Sydney, got a dog. From time to time, Liliana gave interviews to local newspapers.And in 1984 she appeared in the media on a happy occasion: the girl married a millionaire and developer Ian Hyson. Life went on a new round: cocktails became more expensive, and Gasinskaya changed her apartment to a spacious mansion. It seemed that now life was definitely a success, but six years later the couple broke up peacefully.

What caused the separation, whether there were children in marriage, and in the end how much the millionaire left the beautiful wife, is unknown. But marriage greatly changed the way of life of the fugitive. She closed herself off from the press, gave up show business.And after a while she moved to live in London. Here she remarried, gave birth to two sons, received a British passport, became interested in spiritual practices …

Now Liliana is 56 years old, but she looks younger, travels a lot, loves India and meditation tours, does not like her sons-students. Fifteen years ago, she brought her parents from Ukraine and, they say, has not been to her small homeland since then.

Liliana still doesn’t want to talk to the press. We wrote to the matured “girl in a red bikini” on Facebook with a request to give us at least a short interview, but Gasinskaya did not answer.Maybe she decided that the insidious homeland of the Soviets was again pulling its tentacles towards it?


Swam to the Philippines for two days

For more than two days, the restricted ocean scientist Stanislav Kurilov swam to the coast of the Philippines, jumping on December 13, 1974 from a Soviet cruise liner. Kurilov got to the ship “Sovetsky Soyuz” as a tourist. On the night of the escape, a strong storm began, but Kurilov decided that this was only to his advantage. He was an excellent swimmer and did yoga regularly, so he was confident in his abilities.Then there was survival – almost two days by swimming without sleep, food and drink. He ended up on the sandy beach of the Philippine island of Siargao and immediately passed out. Local residents found him …

In the USSR, the fugitive was sentenced in absentia to 10 years for treason. And he continued to study science abroad, having traveled half the world. Ironically, Kurilov’s free life began and ended in the water. He died while diving at Lake Tiberias in Israel in January 1998. Releasing underwater equipment, got entangled in nets and blew out all the air…

90,000 10 little-known facts from the life of a Soviet girl who fled in one bikini to Australia from a cruise ship (1979) | Visual

My recent note about Liliana Gasinskaya, who at the age of 18 escaped from a Soviet cruise ship, jumping off the board in the port of Sydney, collected 300 thousand reads in a couple of days. This means that the material is interesting to a wide audience. During the preparation of the publication, I learned a lot from the Australian press, but these interesting facts did not fit into a small article.Therefore, I prepared a sequel – 10 little-known facts from the biography of a Komsomol member in a red bikini.

Fugitive Liliana tells the Daily Mirror how she escaped from a Soviet ship.

Fugitive Liliana tells the Daily Mirror how she escaped from a Soviet ship.

10. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the escape of Liliana Gasinskaya. Anniversary. A Ukrainian woman from Donbass escaped from the Leonid Sobinov ship on the night of January 14-15, 1979.In the port of Sydney, she got out in one bikini and with her favorite ring on her finger through the window and jumped into the water. We had to swim for 40 minutes, dodging the beams of the searchlights. The coast of Australia is full of sharks, so the girl was still lucky to swim.

9. The hometown of a girl in a red bikini is Alchevsk in the Voroshilovgrad region. If anyone does not know, Voroshilovgrad was called until 1990 … Lugansk.

8. Liliana’s mother is an actress, her father is a musician. Gasinskaya studied at a good school with in-depth study of English. But she left after grade 8 and entered the specialty “ship waiter” at the Odessa vocational school of marine tourist service. Later, Lilya will tell Australian journalists that while still a schoolgirl, at the age of 14, she conceived an escape and consciously chose a profession. She fled at the first opportunity.

7. The first person Lily met in Australia was Bill Green, an employee of the University of Sydney. He was walking the dog along the shore when a trembling girl got out of the water and said in broken English that she needed political asylum and … some clothes. Green brought Gasinskaya to his home, and talked to her until three in the morning, drinking coffee.

The boulevard newspaper Daily Mirror has published a lot of materials about the fugitive from the USSR.

The newspaper Daily Mirror published a lot of materials about the fugitive from the USSR.

6. A roof over her head in Australia for Liliana Gasinskaya was provided by journalists from the Daily Mirror tabloid newspaper. They hid her from everyone (except the police and other government officials) in exchange for an exclusive interview and a photo shoot in a red bikini. These pictures were scattered all over the world.

5. In Australia, Lilya received refugee status within a week. The Minister for Immigration Michael McKellar himself made a hunch. A beautiful girl with a romantic story of escape charmed everyone: ordinary people, journalists and even politicians. Rare ill-wishers slandered that it is impossible to solve immigration issues depending on someone’s media appeal.And they were told that there is actually an overabundance of single men in Australia.

4. In 1979, Penthouse was launched in Australia for men. It was Gasinskaya who graced the cover of the first October issue. For pictures without a red bikini, the girl was paid a fee of 15 thousand dollars. In total, 2000 photographs were taken, of which the editorial staff selected 15 pages of material.I confess I found that post. For 19 years (that was how much a Ukrainian woman was at the time the magazine was published), the Soviet Komsomol member could boast of an excellent figure and luxurious forms.

3. Liliana wanted to be an actress like her mother and enrolled in a modeling school in Sydney. She turned out to have a good sense of rhythm. She began performing in discos as a dancer and DJ. She liked Rod Stewart, Donna Summer and the great band Queen most of all at that disco time.Later Gasinskaya appeared a little in Australian soap operas with titles like Young Doctors – but without serious roles.

2. In 1981, Liliana Gasinskaya wanted to visit her parents in Voroshilovgrad and asked for an entry permit. Of course, she received a refusal from the USSR. However, the very intention of Lily to leave provoked a scandal in Australia, and they even wanted to reconsider her refugee status. “You don’t seem to appreciate the generosity with which our country has treated you,” said one diplomat.Gasinskaya denied everything, and, in the end, the case was hushed up.

1. Whether consciously or not, Liliana Gasinskaya ruined the marriage of the Daily Mirror photographer Graham Fletcher , which published extensive exclusive materials about her. He left his wife, leaving three children and helped the girl launch a career. Lilya married the second time in 1984 for the construction magnate Ian Hason.
