Always persecuted, the owners of the taiga do not immediately make contact with strangers. They do not have passports and "devil's numbers" like taxpayer identification. Their life is simple and includes daily hard work - cleaning hay, fish, picking berries and mushrooms, harvesting firewood and brushwood, collecting moss and helping to build a house. Strong and independent, good-natured and hardworking people opened up, whose happiness is in love for God, children and nature. It is believed there are about 2 million (!!) old believers residing along the Siberian rivers.
