Provincie Lori: Fioletovo.

Dorpje uit de 19de eeuw, gesticht door Russische families. De inwoners behoren bij de sekte van de 'Molokanen'. Dit zijn orthodoxe christenen die alle materiêle voorstellingen van God verwerpen. Dus geen kruisen, heiligenbeelden of kerken. Hun naam is afgeleid uit het Russische 'moloko' melk. Tijdens de vastendagen verzetten ze zich tegen de door de clerus opgelegde leefwijze en eten dan alleen producten van dierlijke oorsprong zoals vlees en melk. The Molokans (Russian: Молока́не) are a religious sect, among Russian peasants (serfs), who broke away from the Russian Orthodox Church in the 1550s. Molokans denied the Czar's divine right to rule and rejected icons. They also reject the Trinity as outlined by the Nicene Creed, the Orthodox fasts, military service, the eating of unclean foods, and other practices, including water baptism. They claim to be the direct descendants of the ancient Armenian "Paulicians", who became known as the "Bogomils" of Thrace, Bulgaria, Bosnia and Serbia. Molokan means "milk drinkers" in Russian, as they drank milk instead of fasting from it on Orthodox Fasts. uit:
