Father Valera was the man who annually depicted New Year’s cards on the frozen river of Blagoveschensk, Russia. Unfortunately, he died in 2020 because of Covid-19. Grateful citizens of the city came onto the ice and depicted their own snowy card in memory of Father Valera. On the photo above – “To Father Valera”.

Happy New Year 2018!
Happy New Year 2020!
