Nikolay worked on the drilling rigs for many years, and now he is retired. He is fond of fishing, which is often combined with friendly conversation.

"I was very touched by Jehovah's justice," says Nikolay, recalling his path in faith. He was also impressed by the love and friendliness that reigns among Christians. In 2008, he firmly decided to devote his life to serving God.

Nikolay was widowed in 2019. His only daughter is adult and lives in St. Petersburg. Although she does not share the religious beliefs of her father, she sincerely worries about his criminal prosecution on false accusations. Nikolay seeks consolation in God and is happy that the repression has not yet affected his health.
