this is the fuel truck factory russia's number one truck made for girls a look at how well the workplace is organized everything's done to make sure the workers don't waste time waiting there was production is booming the factory has largely managed to get on to civil rails these giants are sold around the globe here based on brand new be not waiting to be delivered to acquire seventy trucks like this once roll up the plant's conveyor belt every day look at about this things that absolutely huge. well i'm no formula one pilot but hopefully it if i can get up that. well i can go so far to. go that was fun to get one of these to travel to whatever it was with the cost of about forty thousand dollars i should start saving my.
that a little. chill be given you see. these pictures that. were taken in the ninety's. never thought that he would become a clergyman with seventy children and yet when he returned home after two years of military service. i had no. no doubt that he would join the priesthood. so what happened to him on the border with afghanistan.
after graduating from some unary nicholai was appointed to a post or in the city rests on the continents of europe and asia its river forms the border their planes this policy i can see the region is subject to blazing heat in summer and severe cold in winter the famous warned of shoals is one here to start choosing temperatures. the young clergyman and his wife came to the village of sort of one hundred kilometers for more and there is nothing remarkable in the village other than rows of buildings. this prompted father nicholai to plan the construction of three churches in orthodox school and a charity house. doesn't home so cute by terrorists square metre of two hectares. stands give them more money was needed to buy the houses and then syria. but when construction work began father nicholai didn't have enough
money to complete it that's the way it was. but miraculously the project was completed the main church resembles the one in orangeburg that was torn down in soviet times the design of the orthodox school was copied from a nineteenth century diary as through the administrative building it was inspired by a picture in a book of fairy tales by odds on the pushkin. the cushions vast house across the road it is big enough to accommodate father nicholas incredibly large family of seventy children. much as a young boy. around over a family with many children. a modest wife and enough money to buy her a nice dress. but then i married and bought a dress. that. we had no kids of our own so so we went to
an orphanage to adopt some young children. just took away the ones that were offered and we had no idea how children should be cared for so on no occasion we doctored five kids. and as time went by we realized that we could care for them for. a couple more i said to my wife but then we ended up adopting a servant. for daddy. daddy. i was one of the several kids that they had taken then i asked him what shall i call you. he said call us father and mother if you like yes very much i responded and after that i found it easy to call the mother and father. i remember the day when father came to the
orphanage he and his wife were sitting in the chair in the corridor when they came up and i thought the one wearing the black robe was a woman i mistook it for a dress i told him only and he gave me a suite or. when i turned him over and got another suite i wasn't exactly sure who was momen who was that. three years later father nicholas family had grown to forty seven children. on another occasion a woman from another town chanced upon a seven year old boy remedying through garbage cans he was bold. she brought him to me and asked me where i could give him shelter. had to some documents and where he was from he had no documents he was from hunting. this woman has heard about our place and was just planning to come to or inboard to visit her friend so she decided to take this boy with her and i said ok he's just one person let's hope our family grew from. this situation with neglect to children
was quite desperate at the time but it would be i believe one third of the kids or those brought to me by either people yes i thought he was the lord himself i was a little child then my granny had told me many stories about god it was an icon in our house so when i first saw my father he was like god. at that time i knew i was as young as her daughter is now father nicholai had already cheap priesthood even though he was just a young man under thirty. when he first took his new family to church the children pick pocketed parishioners. the first ahead a rose tinted picture of the children i saw them as angels my wife and i went through a very difficult period filled with uncertainty to take them back from that which
was tough. but they do we want to give them a rabbit a gift from my heart but the following morning the rabbit was nowhere to be seen where did it go did it run away took it into a kong to find it but it was lying dead just outside the garden gate somebody had stabbed it as it turned out that the father of the boy who killed the rabbit so be used to kill dogs eat. and. many a father nikolai's children did not have ideal childhoods some were removed from poor houses where they had to steal to survive others had never seen a tooth brush or even an apple the mothers would drink even though they were pregnant some of the children still have scars from beatings one daughter's head was slammed against the wall by her alcoholic biological father so their new father needed to work
a miracle for them to overcome their past. patients but it's hard to escape the past like yesterday for example we have a girl here i took her from a maternity home when she was just a baby so yesterday she stole a purse from her tutor but if another girl saw the act and demanded to know what she was holding her hands so the little one said want me to share some with the you why. i say. let's. head there was a. oh yeah. that was a good job. father nicholai hired a staff of nannies to help raise and teach the children. over time he learned how to both encourage and discipline. i always try to avoid
spanking them but sometimes i simply have to even though it is their wrong thing to do. those who are nervous breakdowns usually when they misbehave. i just don't allow them to play. and join the others on one of our in many trips. and this case they just stayed home with the nanny. in the summer he takes all the children to the seaside to go sailing and sometimes it takes time to moscow. this one shows father and me visit in jerusalem i was eight years old here i'm three years old for this is in america. and i remember the incredible with the arrival of a new comer here comes the girl nobody knows just be she going to call them father
and mother like we do father says this goes name is he she will stay with us i fly into a rage how come she's going to live with us and call the mother and father. father nicholai knows perfectly well how to settle conflicts among the children women because when i talk to each of them separately and i tell them i understand where they're coming from i tell them i'm on their side and then the next child comes and i told them the same and this way conflicts will settle themselves. the family focuses on raising the children that they have but some come on their own accord maria a distant relative of father nikolai asked to join his family. i came here when i was sixteen years old the other girls who are about the same age if we had been raised in the same family there would be no conflicts we simply didn't know each other i wasn't here for sixteen years they have been living together for a long time they belong to different nationalities and have managed to build
a community and then i came suddenly we were. not going to know the saying goes when in rome do as the romans do but she was out to impose her own rules and. she wanted to be the leader but that would not work with us. we aren't allowed to play football with the boys but she did i told her playing football with the boys was against the rules. she said i tried to teach me if she came back and began swinging her arms in front of me we had a fight about roost me. it was about kinship and who love you see is a relative of mine but the other girls moved in with their father since childhood he loves us more than he does you with and that's what caused a quarrel with. how to succumb to the majority but i told you did the wrong thing by trying to set yourself against all the others who put your search. now
maria lives in the charity house across the road from father nikolai's family. there's a pacemaker inside my chest and evil for bad train i know several old women complaining about their children living off their pensions and the disaster living. in the rules that stretch to here if the girls can't wear trousers they have to wear scarves in company guys house kids lead the way they like to kill will leave as if we were in a more honest tree sometimes life gets very boring there is no communication with the outside to the family gathers together during rehearsals they are always preparing for a performance was what it was while i was on the break and even christmas nor the new year by the frost won't find you my boys and girls live and study separately they meet in church at rehearsal or on the far. right.
to create the super got the stuff. after the second coming it will be a futile place it will receive its glory it will be a renewed world and it will be a beautiful place. full of the best. will stuff the stuff ammunition. is good business for us it's kind of like being a doctor you know if there's a disaster businesses. better unfortunately.
and i told dad i don't know what's going to happen next. for the priest the most important thing is that his daughter's fiance is a good man christina's husband is a policeman she was studying to become an accountant to norm berg which is where she met her spouse. but i don't my follow that i have met a guy and he's happy i wanted to meet him too. they go to acquainted with said that he's a good guy and we can be friends and so on this is nice to. basically it was lemon who got married his. party was the next one. the girls love looking at wedding pictures hanging in the house as well as those of all seventy children who all called this to them scuse their father and mother. the parents members to look out for the first group of children themselves but as the family grew they had to hire people to help them. the mother could not cope
with washing diapers for three dozen babies and checking the homework of twenty schoolchildren but like all parents try to spend all their free time together with their children. basically i was my mother's favorite shows holding mean her arms all the time can you see me in her arms in the pictures and here i am in her arms too she was holding me all the time. little by little the day to day lives of the children have changed before it was the mother who put everyone to bed now the older sisters are in charge of the task it's also their responsibility to look after the little ones. it takes four shots to cope with the family a lot of food is needed as the children can eat their way through one hundred fifty kilograms of potatoes in just three days but the children always help in the kitchen it's very important for them to know where food comes from and an orphanage children don't even know how to make friday since they only see cook dishes.
children come and get your pies. father nikolai's sometimes drops by to see if everything is fine now it is he has very little time to do so. first children got a lot of our attention we spent all the time together with them we took them to try everywhere we went to the boat. they received lots of our attention i would be biological parents sometimes give less care to their kids than we did. but with the kids that we have now situation is somewhat different. perhaps because we have grown older. at first glance it may seem that life for the children here is no different than in a good orphanage should move closer what makes the difference is that they feel
protected they don't want to leave this place. they don't ask me to pass them to another family this is the best sign that they feel protected. it's there are different from an orphanage even know when i married my father calls me to ask how my kids and i are doing my children treat him as their grandfather and love him very much in addition dead bought us a house which is one of the cases that often injures one with. he helps us just any normal parent but he's got too many children. the priest knows that one day many of them will ask him for a blessing of guidance. here they just want to know why they abandoned me. sooner or later almost everyone of the children will wonder why they were abandoned and try to find out who their birth parents are.
she was at home when i arrived. i said her maiden name and she confirmed that it was her i started making himself can you sure remembered a certain person that said the name of the date she said yes so i told her i was his son but she said i wasn't what i said was that strange it's me look at my birthday took but she kept on saying i was not her son so that's the kind of conversation we've had with the record although she doesn't want me of course i'm not going to thrust myself on her that i do have parents here they are my dad and my mom that's all i need. my mother in the next she knows that i leave here and she knew that i had been taken to protect ash. lee i don't carry stan about her.
she doesn't want me if she abandoned me when i look for her. i have the parents who took care of me and my childhood is the world and they take care of me of a now. but they can still help me even though i am an adult and i have my own family. nowadays they all gather together for big holidays like christmas not just the children but the children's children too. it. is at least a year. in one. year
that. some of the older children who work at the monastery others have left father nicholai lets his flock choose their own path. song gilenya what do you want to be when you grow up every ever thought about it. now. but it's time already it's time to make a choice i know that here and you can has already made her choice be honest with have you made your choice i want to be a designer or i can paint or what about you. and no you don't know when you will be and i don't know. what about police officer police officer. why are you crying divied. the children know their father supports them and that miracles do happen ask and it shall be given seek and you will find knock and it
shall be opened on to you. for instance an ordinary person can feel very doubtful about building a church did you would saying my name or other resources and he wouldn't cope with the task but as for him he doesn't think he's going to do it he simply does it he's not afraid of anything. home. father nicholai had a parish without a church good he managed to found an orthodox town he had no children if he became the father of a very large family. i always wanted to be full of children the bliss is my dream what used to maybe my son nikolai will be able to do it more i must raise a successor who can continue what i've been doing for conducting children.
he told me that will be his successor he's always saying that to the guests. nikolai is a mother now his father often takes them along on trips like to moscow once as they were travelling he told his son what happened to him on the border with afghanistan in the one nine hundred eighty five. during a schema she was hit by a bullet which broke a story. school stirred was upset because the cross was broken. so he put it on the table and went away. but later when he came back and like hell for no or he saw that the cross was really as good as new. father nikolai wants his children to start families of their own rather than war is the only explosion he wants them to hear is when the christmas fireworks rumble in
the sky. you know how sometimes you see a story and it seems so for life you think you understand it and then you glimpse something else you hear or see some other part of it and realized everything you thought you knew you don't know i'm charming welcome to the big picture. joining me on a journey to the heart of the problem to a place is hidden from the tourists are you going to meet some real kremlin insiders although they may not be the usual news makers you see on t.v. .
