Roman Gridasov is one of six Saratov residents who served a court-ordered sentence for believing in Jehovah God. On July 29, 2021, he left the colony.
Roman was born in 1978 in Saratov. He has a younger sister. In his youth, he was fond of sports - he was engaged in running, biathlon, cycling, wrestling. He often went hiking. After school, he received the specialty of technician-technologist-builder. He worked in the field of construction and finishing works. In his spare time, he plays the accordion, still loves nature and travel, especially in the Caucasus.
Roman's wife's name is Elvira, they got married in 2011. Elvira sews clothes and loves to make gifts for friends with her own hands.
When Roman began to study the Holy Scriptures, he saw how the Bible changes people's behavior and thinking for the better. Oddly enough, it was Christian beliefs that served as the reason for the fact that a criminal case was opened against Roman. The court found the believer guilty of extremism without evidence and sentenced him to 2 years in prison. Relatives were shocked that he was considered a criminal only because of his convictions - nothing but talking about the Bible, Roman was not charged.
