In the spring of 2018, when returning to Novosibirsk, the representatives of the ‘’Eltsovka’’ Airlines, landed on the upper river Bolshoy Abakan on a Eurocopter AS350 helicopter to visit the Siberian hermit Agafia Lykova.

Despite her age (75 years old), the woman continues to live alone in the forest of the Abakan ridge of the Western Sayan.

In a short meeting, Agafia Karpovna spoke about her life, health, and problems. Contact details were given to her so she could ask for help if necessary.
