      Orthodox Church for Chinese built in Russia

      The church was supposed to be built within the Russian embassy. But
      bureaucratic delays led to a decision to change the site.

      Vladivostok (AsiaNews) – A Church for Chinese Orthodox Christians, which
      Moscow originally wanted to build in its embassy in China, has been
      constructed in Russia instead, near the border, in Primorye, facing the Sea
      of Japan. Timber that had been sent to Beijing to build the church was used
      to complete the building in Russia, blessed on 30 May........
