Reports have it that Russian special forces in the early hours of Tuesday, September 22, staged a special operation to detain him.
Sergei Torop – known as Vissarion – and his closest aide Vadim Redkin, a former rock musician, were reportedly detained and flown away under armed guard, Daily Mail reports.
Torop, 59, is a former Red Army conscript and traffic policeman who claimed he was reborn in 1990 as the literal reincarnation of the son of God.
