A demotivational picture joke about my friend:

You have failed your session?
Bag, railway station, *Hat'ki (name of a village she lives in)!

Another one joke: our common friend who is an ethnographer has a theory that this village's name should be pronounced 'Hat'ki' while all the villagers say it 'Haćki'.

Fedor Emelianenko and his FOC, Father Andrew, taking an ice cold bath in Stary Oskol






"Even 20-degree frost has not prevented today, Epiphany, the faithful bathe in Stary Oskol river waters. In one jordan plunged ordinary citizens, officials and athletes. Multiple world champion in MMA Fedor Emelianenko on this day specially arrived in Stary Oskol, to purify themselves and gain strength and health for the whole year.

Water in the river consecrated Father Andrew, rector of St. Nicholas Church, the spiritual mentor Stary Oskol champion. Together with the parish, Archpriest thrice plunged into the river Oskol. The first employee of the city administration in the Jordan Oskol plunged Basil Tinyakov, Head of Industry, Transport and Communications Authority Stary Oskol city district. Behind him in the hole bathed workers of the Youth and Physical Culture and Sports, and Fedor Emelianenko."

That is one well built priest!  He looks like an athlete himself!
Supposedly he has a boxing and judo background.  I've seen videos of him training Sambo with Fedor.
