Alexander GentleIs it possible to save a cleric, being the large Russian businessman?Would the leader of the organization, which now brings the roots of the Khimki forest, one of more or less known entrepreneurs who made the capital of Bank "Satan and Kº", I would reply with a bitter smile of understanding. What can I say? They are the mother will lay under a good percentage - and it's just a forest. But the General Director of JSC "heating engineer" Alexander Trofimovich Semchenko - part-time and still be God's servant: the ruler of the Bishop of the Church of Evangelical Christians, the chief editor of the newspaper "Protestant" and "Christian".In the dead of the Soviet time in a close circle of young believers with a heart trembling, he sang to the guitar Baptist hymns, preached the word of God, secretly published and distributed the Bible, for what, in the end, was captured and sentenced to three years deprived of his liberty.

On the one hand, there is always unpredictability in how to lead the new head of state, despite the existing communication system of checks and balances (as the king had said from the tales of Cinderella, little ASTL rights: no connection can make the leg a little, and a good heart). On the other hand, in the current state with the conservative ideology of stability and order it in principle can't go about the cooling of relations with the ROC MP. Читать полностью -->
