Soviet artist and rock musician Igor Talkov died in 1991 at a concert in St. Petersburg. The death of the young musician shocked many of his fans, and women still make pilgrimages to his burial at the Vagankovskoye cemetery. However, many do this not to honor the memory of the artist; his grave attracts women whose husbands suffer from addictions or have been convicted. Rambler tells the details of what is happening there.
After Talkov's death, his fans long sought his canonization, but it was never crowned with success. Despite the fact that fans tried to elevate their favorite singer to a saint, the church had no reason to canonize him.
Despite this, his "lives" and even Akathists appeared among the people. For example, "Akathist to the Glorious Son of the Russian Land, Passion-Bearer and Martyr Igor Talkov" was published in 2017. Now this akathist can be found even in some church shops, but more often fans pass it from hand to hand.
They wanted to canonize him because of his difficult fate and early death. Some have argued that he has abilities, just like his girlfriend Juna.
Treatment for alcoholism and assistance to prisoners
It is believed that at the grave of Igor Talkov you can ask for a person suffering from various addictions. Most often, women come who hope to help their husbands.
Another legend says that Talkov helps convicts get out of places of imprisonment ahead of time. If your lover has a chance for parole, you need to ask Talkov to help.
You need to come to the grave for three days at the same time before 12:00 and read prayers from "Akathist to the glorious son of the Russian Land, passion-bearer and martyr Igor Talkov." After that, his powers will work and relieve the person from addiction or help to get free.
