The Chinese Orthodox Church

The Yekaterinodar Diocese released the film “Beiguan. The last Russian Ecclesiastical Mission in China”, which tells about the 20th Russian Ecclesiastical Mission in China and its leader, Vladyka Victor (Svyatin).

The film tells about the activities of the Beijing mission in difficult times — during the Japanese occupation, the Communist Revolution and the period of preparation for the establishment of the Chinese Autonomous Orthodox Church.
