On November 10, in Khabarovsk, riot police broke into a friendly party at a local café and arrested several local residents, including Vitaliy Zhuk. A case was opened against them under Article 282.2 (extremism), and Vitaliy ended up in a pre-trial detention center. What is known about him?
Vitaliy Zhuk was born in 1972 in Khabarovsk, but spent his childhood in the village of Krasnorechenskoye (Khabarovsk region). The family had five children, of which Vitaly was the third. From the age of 17 until his arrest, he worked as a welder, and in all work teams he was always appreciated for his experience and responsibility. He is married and has two daughters.
When Vitaliy was about 20 years old, he became very ill and was hospitalized. After that, I began to seriously think about the meaning of life. His spiritual quest led him to study the Bible, where he discovered reasonable answers to questions. Since then, serving God has played an important role in his life.
Vitaly's relatives know him as a kind, modest and sympathetic person. They see that Bible study has a beneficial effect on his entire family and cannot understand why he is behind bars. Vitaliy's relatives and acquaintances sincerely hope that the absurd charges of extremism will be dropped from him.
