The article is devoted to the search of the verity in Platonov’s oeuvre. It vents primarily in his works from the late 1920s till the mid-1930s. Being a staunch defender of communism the writer witnesses yet what a tragic life becomes after the state alters human lives, breaks the lifestyle of the people. The village breaks up, people lose their sense of the unity. The party imposes a new ideology that is not to everyone’s liking. The truth seems to be lost, but in fact it is just inconsistent with the Soviet system. Awareness of this is beyond Platonov’s strength. It is expressed in the writer’s ambivalence which he repeatedly pointed himself.
