Deadly Symfonia

Colonel Alexander Kozin serves in the Federal Security Service on week days, while on weekends he celebrates Divine liturgies in the garrison Church of the Iveron Icon of the Mother of God on the Fields as besides having a military rank, he carries out a priestly ministry.

Russia's Federal Security Service is the successor organization to the infamous KGB.
