Fedotov Tihon Minaevich is now confined to his apartment in the middle of Riga, Latvia. His weak and effected by old age legs make it hard to for him to walk down the staircase, which he would have to use, were he to come outside. Although he gave up trying to leave his apartment, he isn’t defeated, as his spirits are high. He has neither been a weak man before, nor should he start being one now.   Tihon Fedotov was once a farmers’ son, and unlike his other five siblings, he was the one to never accept the reality as it was.
