Believed by some to be a modern day saint, Eugene (Yevgeny) Rodionov died in 1996 on his 19th birthday while in Chechen captivity. According to his mother (who says she spoke with Chechen soldiers when she arrived to claim his body) Eugene refused to convert to Islam, and would not take off his cross. His captors then beheaded him. His sainthood has not yet been officially recognized by the Russian church.
