In December 2018, in Neftekumsk (Stavropol Territory), three believers, including Aleksandr Akopov, were arrested during mass searches in the apartments of civilians. What is known about him?
Aleksandr was born in 1992 in Neftekumsk. He is single and has two siblings. As a child, he was actively involved in football, basketball and tennis. He works with his father and older brother in the field of construction and repair. He independently mastered the specialty of a builder-finisher, clients appreciate him for his professionalism and conscientiousness. He still likes to kick ball with friends or relax in the bosom of nature. Can prepare a delicious treat for guests.
Alexander got acquainted with the Bible as a child thanks to his mother. Under the influence of the holy book, at the age of 6, he got rid of military toys and decided that he would not take up arms.
Relatives and acquaintances who do not share Alexander's religious beliefs are completely perplexed that this calm, polite, kind young man ended up in prison because of his faith. Some pray for him.
Alexander's father, also not one of Jehovah's Witnesses, said he was proud of him.
