This day is de name-day of Archimandrite Oleg Cherepanin, Representative of the Russian Orthodox Church in Thailand, dean of Patriarchal Deanery in the Kingdom of Thailand and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of OCT College.

According to the chronicle histories, Prince Oleg together and his father, Prince Roman Mikhailovich of Briansk, participated in a war against Lithuania in 1274.
