Breaking Stalin's Nose
by Eugene Yelchin
Character Role Analysis
Vovka Sobakin and Sasha Zaichik
These guys are almost polar opposites. Vovka is loud, rash, and violent, while Sasha is quiet, careful, and calm. While both are the children of enemies of the state, they each deal with it in different ways: Vovka acts out loudly, while Sasha engages in more quiet rebellion.
