The Nail Your Sin action is held in Ivanovo with the support of Orthodox youth.

The event organizers set a wooden column before the chapel near the Scientific Library and participants in the action should nail with the hammer a sheet of paper with their sins, the local diocese has informed Interfax on Wednesday.

All comers can repent in such an unusual way, and participants in the action also have a chance to talk to clerics.
