Parts of the Monastery; The land grab is on…

I decided to take a picture (It is about 2:30 a.m. when I took these!) of all the parts of the monastery that are being gathered up to turn the village back to its original monastery habitat. It was a female monastery originally, but has been officially turned into a male monastery now. The Orthodox Church is slowly but relentlessly grabbing land and gathering pieces of the village, like an octopus, hiding in its cave…

I try to make people understand that they will lose their places, if they do not register the homes in their names. For years now, it has been mandatory for people to get their properties registered properly and time has run out. The Orthodox Church, which has the patience of Job, has all the time in the world. They wait and when the property becomes officially available. They either get it free or pay a pittance for the property…

It is legal, for people know and have known for a longtime to get their property in order. Russians literally all own their property, but Russians are lazy and some will lose their free properties to people who have patience…

I even know of some here in the village that have not claimed their land, but only the home. This allows people to buy the property from under them and that will effect future heirs to properties. It has to do with taxes and for the desire to not pay $20 or $30 dollars a year for the actual land. Could be future fatal…

Svetochka finally got their village property and home done. But only after I finally laid down the facts of a octopus church land grabbing. Vova finally got his property done, he got scared silly when the Orthodox Church realized his property is on their property and he was able to get his rights established, before they got theirs…

Another person is having a fit about the cemetery that was finally discovered in the field. I understand that his home is on that cemetery; And guess what? Right, he is not registered the property for its protection… Money is not an issue. He always has a bottle of vodka and a cigarette in his mouth. So $20 a year in taxes is not a problem…

The main thing I see is that the monastery seems to have ability to sway decisions involved and parts of the old school fall toward the monastery in rights. The truth is; 3/4 of this Tiny Russian Village is ontop the old monastery land…

Therefore, this is for the record of the story I will one day write about the Tiny Russian Village, otherwise known as Zarya Svobody, Ryazan Oblast, Russia…

A survivor of six heart attacks and a brain tumor, a grumpy bear of a man, who has declared Russia as his new and wonderful home (&) Honestly, I have no idea how much to ask for, but is a gift of even $1 something you'd be able to consider, to help keep Windows to Russia online in a Tiny Russian Village?
