Day of the Oprichnik
Day of the Oprichnik (Russian: День опричника, Den' oprichnika) is a 2006 novel by the Russian writer Vladimir Sorokin. The narrative is set in the near future, when the Tsardom of Russia has been restored, and follows a government henchman, an oprichnik, through a day of grotesque events.
Sorokin in one of the later interviews confessed that he did not anticipate his novel to come true, even in some subtle details, but rather wrote this book as a warning and "mystical precaution" against the state of events described in the storyline.
