Second Orthodox Church to be Built in Antarctica

The Ukrainian government is funding the construction of a Ukrainian Orthodox church in Antarctica for its scientists and researchers on the continent. The church, which will be under the jurisdiction of the autonomous Church of Ukraine of the Moscow Patriarchate, will be the second in Antarctica. The Ukrainian government will also be presenting a bell to the first Orthodox church on the continent, which was built by the Russian government. More here.
