Ivan Grigoryevich Puyda was born in 1978 in the village of Kvitok (Irkutsk Region) to a large family of believers. Ivan has six older brothers and a sister.

As a child Ivan loved to read, he played the accordion and dreamed of traveling. After graduating from school he became a driver; he lived and worked in different places: Nizhneudinsk (Irkutsk Region), Krasnoyarsk, Ulan-Ude and Khabarovsk.

In Krasnoyarsk Ivan met a girl by the name of Anastasiya, a dentist. In 2005 they got married. Ivan and Anastasiya love to travel, play board games and spend time together. Ivan’s wife and other relatives are in shock from the fact that in a civilized country peace-loving citizens can be put behind bars as “extremists”.
