Medical Workers Walk 1.5 Km Through Snowdrifts and Save the Life of a 100-Year-Old Woman team | 27 January 2022

Paramedic Anastasia Plakhina and driver Igor Kolesnikov from Tuapse, Krasnodar Territory, walked 1.5 kilometers through snowdrifts and saved the life of a 100-year-old patient.

The governor of the Krasnodar Territory, Veniamin Kondratiev, spoke about the feat of two ambulance workers on his Instagram page.

“They went to the call early in the morning. But already on the road they realized that the car would not be able to drive to the house because of the high snowdrifts. Without hesitation, they took heavy oxygen tanks and walked 1.5 kilometers with flashlights and a navigator. They arrived in time to help the panting woman,” wrote the head of the region.

As the governor noted, Anastasia Plakhina and Igor Kolesnikov are “real doctors who are ready to fulfill their official duty under any conditions. Thanks to them for this!”

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
