Chinese members of the congregation who are descended from 17th Century Russian Cossack soldiers during a service conducted by Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill at the Russian Embassy in Beijing during his first ever visit to China on May 12, 2013. Patriarch Kirill is a close ally of President Vladimir Putin who survived Communist repression and made the church into one of the more powerful institutions of the post-Soviet state. The 65-year-old native of Putin's Saint Petersburg was selected for the high post in 2009 and embarked on a campaign to spread the Russian faith both inside the country and abroad.
