Konstantin Bazhenov was born in 1975 in Veliky Novgorod in a family far from religion. As a child, he moved to Ukraine with his parents and brother. As a child, Konstantin was engaged in gymnastics, was fond of music, graduated from a music school and became the head of a brass band. At the same time, from a young age, Konstantin was a principled and thinking person. Driven by personal pacifist convictions, he did not serve in the armed forces. During his student years, he researched the spiritual literature of different religions. He found answers to his questions when he began a Bible study.
To earn a living, Konstantin mastered the art of a bricklayer-stovemaker. Over time, while living in Ukraine, he met Irina, and in 2001 they decided to start a family. In 2009, Konstantin and Irina moved to Russia. The couple love to travel around the country. They have creative hobbies: Irina is fond of drawing, and Konstantin loves to play percussion instruments.
Konstantin's relatives endure his unfair arrest very painfully. They do not understand how a kind, sensitive and peace-loving person could be accused of extremism and inciting hatred. They are very worried about him and hope that the authorities will realize that they made a mistake.
In 2019, the Leninsky District Court of Saratov sentenced Konstantin Bazhenov to 3.5 years in a colony because he believes in God. The Court of Appeal upheld this decision. On May 5, 2021, 45-year-old Konstantin Bazhenov was released on parole from the colony in Dimitrovgrad and sent to a temporary detention center for foreign citizens for deportation to the territory of Ukraine, since his Russian citizenship was revoked due to criminal prosecution.
