On March 20, 2019, searches and interrogations of citizens in connection with their Christian beliefs resumed in Magadan. Lyubov Asatryan became a new defendant in a criminal case against believers in Magadan, who by this time had already become 13. The investigation believes that she participated in worship services. What do we know about Lyubov?
Lyubov was born in 1951 in Kirovabad (Azerbaijan), which is now called Ganja. She is the youngest of six children of her parents (five sisters and one brother). Since childhood, Lyubov loved to read, knitted and sewed. After school, she graduated with honors from a vocational technical school and became a laboratory chemist. In 1973 she moved to Krasnodar (Russia), where she got a job as an optician at a pharmaceutical factory. Later she lived in several cities of the Far East, including Magadan.
Since childhood, Lyubov was worried about the fact that she saw a lot of violence around her, and she was very happy to learn from the Bible that God intends to put an end to all violence and cruelty. This made her want to harmonize her life with the commandments of the Holy Book. This happened back in 1991.
Lyubov still loves to read a lot, chat with friends, pick berries and cones in the forest. She was married and had no children.
Neighbors and acquaintances who do not share Lyubov's religious beliefs are completely perplexed by her criminal prosecution, while Christian friends pray fervently for her.
