Konstantin Bazhenov and his wife Snezhana were detained on August 19, 2018 in the town of Yelizovo (Kamchatka Territory). After long legal proceedings, the spouses were sentenced to 2 years probation for extremism.
Konstantin was born in 1977 in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. He is the eldest of four children of his parents. As a child, he loved equipment and designers, which later came in handy for him in the profession of a locksmith. He also worked as a school labor teacher.
Konstantin is a sociable person, he has many friends with whom he loves to be in nature and sea fishing. In 2001 he married Snezhana, a teacher by education. They had a daughter, Elizabeth. Shortly thereafter, the Bible touched Constantine's heart, and he decided to live in harmony with its commandments with his family. Later, the whole family moved to the district center of Yelizovo.
Relatives of Konstantin and Snezhana were discouraged by the news about their criminal prosecution. Even those of them who do not share their religious views are outraged by what is happening and try to help in any way they can. "These events have brought us all together even more," Konstantin notes.
