Comment: This is of course, spoken all in Russian, however it is still well worth viewing by non-Russian speakers,
 as the photos and film are well worth seeing. Some of these nuns are now departed to the Lord. Memory Eternal!
Again, this is a part II video, of their early formative 'Skete' years in Ishim, Siberia, when ROCOR Bp. Eftikhi was blessing them, etc.
So, there is sadness in this history, a similar sadness and shock which many of us old members of the old free ROCOR have experienced with that surprising betrayal to the MP in 2007.  When Bp. Eftikhi made his [shocking] betrayal to the MP, Mother Alexandra and her sisters had
to flee, literally quickly 'by night', as it were,  to Odessa, and put themselves under the protection of our Vladyka Agafangel.
