What's the situation of Orthodoxy among Finno-Ugric people within Russian? Are there native clergy? Are services translated into native languages?

I know someone who has worked in Khanti-Mansi and learned the language, but he was Protestant at the time.

If you spend long enough on this forum, you'll come away with all sorts of weird, untrue ideas of Orthodox Christianity.
