Sergey Liviyevich Yerkin was born in 1953 in Vladivostok. He is an architectural engineer. Since 1975 Sergey has lived in Kazakhstan, where he has been working as an engineer, architect and leading designer of buildings. In the 1980s he moved to the Magadan Region, where he was involved in construction. Before he retired he worked as an engineer for construction budgeting at one of the mining enterprises of Chukotka.

Sergey’s friends and acquaintances know him as a good and kind man. He looked after his elderly mother until her death in 2007.

This intelligent and modest man, who has all his life worked for the good of society, now is accused of absurd crimes that are incompatible with his Christian beliefs.

Due to Sergey’s illness doctors have prescribed a diet for him. His being in prison is more difficult due to his illness.
