A woman rides a bicycle past a church of the religious sect led by Vissarion, who has proclaimed himself a new Christ, in the village of Petropavlovka, 580 km (360 miles) southeast of Russia's Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk, August 16, 2010. Former police officer Vissarion gave up his original name of Sergei Torop and created a sect in 1991, whose members give up their property to join the construction of a so-called Sun City on the slopes of the mountain where their leader is. Russia's dominant Orthodox Church says sects like that of Vissarion, which have mushroomed after the collapse of the Soviet Union, ruin the moral health of the nation by indoctrinating their disciples and call for their ban.
