Alexander was born in a Christian home in Torez, Donetsk region, East Ukraine, during the time of the Soviet Union. It was a difficult time to be a Christian. His family was persecuted. The communists came to their house searching for any Christian literature, and took it away.
God touched his heart when he was 10 years old and he repented sincerely. He was baptized when he was 15 years old. From that time he has followed Jesus and he continues to serve Him.
Sveta was born in Lutsk, Volun region, West Ukraine, into a Christian home. Her parents were members of the underground Baptist church. Their family was persecuted too. Her father was in prison because of his faith at the time of the Soviet Union. She repented when she was 14 years old and was baptized when she was 16. She sings for the Lord in her family and in the church.
Alexander met Sveta in the underground Baptist church in Lutsk, West Ukraine, in 1985 when he was a soldier in the Soviet Army. At that time every man, aged 18 or above, had to be a soldier in that Army. In 1989 they married in Lutsk. They have four children: Susanna, Iliya, David and Mark.
