English translation by Nina Tkachuk Dimas

On July 16, 2010 Fr. Sergei Voronin, priest-in-charge of the Church of the Dormition of the Theotokos in Beijing met with a group of students from Nizhny Novgorod State University named after NI Lobachevsky (Faculty of International Relations). Students, who are interning in China at the invitation of the Russian Embassy in China, visited the Embassy grounds and the history museum of the Beijing Ecclesiastical Mission at the Dormition Church.

Their meeting took place in a warm atmosphere; Father Sergei Voronin led them on a tour of the temple and museum, after which he answered the young people’s many questions about Orthodoxy in China.
