      Hegumen Vianor (Ivanov), Dean of the Zharken deanery in the Kazakhstan
      Metropolia, served the funeral of Galina Merkulova, the "starosta" of
      St. Nicholas Church in Kuldzha (Yining) of the Xinjiang-Uighur
      Autonomous Region of China. Galina Pavlovna Merkulova for many years
      bore the responsibility of serving as "starosta". Because of her
      efforts the authorities of Kuldzha decided to build the St. Nicholas
      Church in 2000. With permission from the Bureau of Religious Affairs,
      Fr. Vianor performed the rite of burial for Galina Pavlovna Merkulova
      in the Russian cemetery in Kuldzha.
