Investigating the situation in Montana one could find the stuff very suspicious for the evil people involved: Parfiry Toran (the priest in Oregon), Fred Ovchinnikov (the contractor of building the church at the monastery), and Rick Basargin (a monk). All these people love only money and they never thought about what the fear of God is. Greed is their real god.
Parfiry Toran was mentioned many times by our authors because of his passion to money and his rotten family. Fred Ovchinnikov is a well known a pyramid scam maker who was forced in 2005-2006 to pay all people back. Sofroni and Porfiri like him for his money. But Rick Basargin is a new character of our chronicle.
His Christian name was Averian and after becoming monk he was named Avraamy, but everybody always calls him simply Rick. There were no problems for monastery when Prochor B. was alive because he had got enough money, but his death provoked many problems. Rick and his brothers decided to run spa business and Rick’s brothers started to visit monastery very often, and it was impossible for them to spend time there without parties.
So, step by step the monastery became a house of everyday party. Drugs and alcohol appeared there and you know what happens next. Parfiri Toran being a priest tried to teach Rick to be more restrained but it’s impossible for man to be a doctor if he needs doctor for himself! Rick hasn’t listened to him and informed archbishop Sofroni about Parfiri’s attempts and Sofroni told Parfiri: you need to teach you own family first and this monk is my person! Rick was triumphant over his teacher! They say that now when Parfiri goes there they are not talking to each other. But don’t pay attention at that conflict because the quarrel of lovers is the renewal of love. They always were and are together and Rick visited Oregon many times hunting for money. When money was incoming they were all happy and wanted to get it more and more.
