From Portal-Credo.ru, Russian & English, a Short-Biography of Eugene Lvovich MAGEROVSKY-
Comment: Much more could be written about this life-long ANTI-COMMUNIST, a very good man's amazing productive life and works.
*He loved his real Russia, and he loved his America, both.
I was very privileged to have spoken to him daily via phone, as his friend and confidant, for about his last year and a half, up till his passing, as we both faught that foul bogus 're-union' which was a Kremlin engineered plot from the start of it, and was not only aimed to subvert/capture the anti-communist Russian diaspora church people, i.e., ROCOR, but also as another perfidious fifth-columnist plot against America!-which country the KGB Kremlin gangsters still see, as their number one enemy in this world! ..and I know just how very dedicated he was to freeing his beloved Russian land and people and church! from the oppressive godless communist yoke and it's present neo-soviet KGB controlled debased condition, and returning/resurrecting Russia to what was best, most noble in old historic Russia, the real Russia, that Old Russia which the reds have murdered off, or totally still do enslave, by in large.
Yet his pro-Kremlin propaganda lying slanderers called him, 'anti-Russian', a 'hater of Russia', and 'working for the CIA', etc....others claimed that he was 'working for both the KGB...and...the CIA!'. WHAT RUBBISH!!!
He refused any compromise with those who have betrayed, in 2007, a large part of our old free ROCOR, to the KGB controlled MP 'church'.
And thus, he spoke boldly and, 'rudely'...in the ears of many. To them, he was 'strident', 'unpleasant', 'divisive', etc.
Eugene Lvovich Magerovsky spoke the truth, no matter who wanted to hear it...or not.
May his soul now rest near the God of Truth, the God Who..... cannot abide.... any.... liars.
Vechnaya Pamyat! and Memory Eternal! to A GOOD MAN!
