After Chernobyl (9/40)
Novo Ladizhichi, Ukraine, is a new village, built by the Soviet government in 1987 for evacuees from the original Ladizhichi. The church has been under construction for over a decade, as villagers have had trouble raising enough money to continue. Because it is unfinished, the church is decorated with temporary posters rather than murals.
