You might considered that a fantasy if you wish, but
there is a record of some bezpassportnik clergy coming
here in States,I think in 70's, which really puzzled
me, but it's a fact. Regarding conditions of life in
USSR I'm not only can imagine, I'm personally knows
what it was and control of KGB, although it was
impressive, wasn't as total as you want to present it.
Those people (bezpassportniki)(passportless) didn't
get into Institutes didn't get a good jobs, didn't try
to establish themselves, but rather choose life full
of troubles and persecution with Christ, to quiet life
of normal soviet conformist with lenin.
