I was born and raised in Russia, in the Ural region. In 1990s I thought of writing a book on John's Revelation (The Apocalypse). After dedicating a few years to this research, I found my Christian faith. In 2000 I was baptized in the Russian Orthodox Church. After that I started working on the book. In 2009 I went on a pilgrimage to the island of Patmos, where John the Apostle received his Revelation. This journey was a great encouragement to me, so I decided to complete my work of interpretation of the Apocalypse. In 2011 I went on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. I am an author of several books on various Christian topics.
