Maksim Khalturin is one of the civilians in Kirov detained after a raid on believers in 2018.
Maksim was born in 1974 in Kirov. Parents tried to instill in him decency, responsibility and love for work. Maksim loved to read. Despite poor health, immediately after school he began working as a turner, and later mastered the profession of an engraver. Wherever Maxim worked, colleagues spoke of him as an honest and responsible person.
At the age of 19, Maksim became interested in biblical teachings. He began to research the Holy Scriptures and found that this book can be trusted and its advice is relevant to life.
Maksim takes care of elderly parents. Although they do not share his religious beliefs, they have always had a warm, close relationship with their son. Maksim helped his father recover from a stroke for several years and took over all the housework. Parents experienced stress when Maksim was arrested and accused of extremism. This worsened their health even more.
