EVGENY RODIONOV ORTHODOX MARTYR (+ 23-5-1996) VIDEO

  
From Village Boy to Soldier, Martyr and, Many Say, Saint
November 21, 2003 - By Seth Mydans, The New York Times 

Evgeny Rodionov,19 years old, did not lose his faith despite horrible tortures.
The Russian patriotic press has already reported about the deed of a 19-year-old Russian soldier, Evgeny Rodionov. This young man found himself in the Chechen captivity in 1996. He did not betray either his fatherland or his faith. He did not take off his cross even at the hardest moment of beastly tortures. The state decorated Evgeny with the Order of Courage.

 

Peoples donations made it possible to put a two-meter high Orthodox cross on his grave. People come to visit his grave from most distant parts of Russia. His mother, Lubov Rodionova, says that peoples attitude changed her entire awareness of life. A WWII veteran once came to visit Evgenys grave. He took off his military decoration the Bravery Medal and put in on the tombstone.
