A new Russian Orthodox Church in Sharjah, UAE, opened with its first services (http://www.kyivpost.com/news/world/detail/111199/) this past Saturday. It is the first Russian Orthodox Church in that country. There is an Indian Orthodox Church in Sharjah as well.

It is the biggest Russian Orthodox Church Complex outside the former Soviet Union that also includes a cultural centre, and was named after Saint Philip, one of the 12 apostles of Jesus Christ.
