Born in 1987 to Stoyan Moskov and Bilyana Moskova, Radostin grew up in the rural village of Churek, Bulgaria.
After finishing basic education Radostin had trouble finding stable work so he did various seasonal agricultural jobs in the region.
In his free time he enjoyed the few good things Churek had to offer: hiking, fishing, driving around without purpose and hanging out with his friends.
Because he had difficulty making ends meet, Radostin resorted to illegal activities such as poaching and selling drugs.
He convinced local elderly to grow marijuana that he would then collect and with his friends distribute for mutual profits.
This went well for years until one of his associates got caught by local police transporting a sizeable amount of weed.
This associate then informed the police of Radostin's role, framing him as the master mind of this crime ring.
Due to family connections in the local police force, Radostin got warned in time so he could avoid arrest himself.
Unwilling to go to prison he opted to flee the country, first heading to Istanbul Turkey, and from there with obtained falsified documents boarding a container ship heading for Chernogorsk.
He arrived in South Zagoria May 2017, only to find the region in turmoil due to tensions between the Chernarussian and Russian population.
Civil unrest had broken out and martial law was declared. Although the prospect of a possible civil war breaking out worried him, the region reminded him of his own home region and he knew that he could probably get by with poaching and doing odd jobs here and there as he had done before. He had little choice for by now his money nearly ran out. Within a week he found himself an old abandoned farmhouse where he settled but to his surprise many of the locals seemed to be moving out, heading west out of worries for conflict.
He didn't mind, he figured they would return eventually and until then he could keep himself comfortable. He bought an old hunting rifle from one of his neighbours and started scouting the surrounding forests and meadows, reminding him much of home. Radostin wondered if he would perhaps stay, start his new life here.
Little did he know what the future held in store.
