A new church is being built in Kherson. Its main structure is made of special polyfoam, as the Kherson Diocese of the Ukraine's Orthodox Church press service reports.

“The church is being built using new modern technology, which includes a special polyfoam. It will be covered with a cement shell,” the statement said.

Interested passersby have already approached the construction site to find out why the church is being built so quickly and why it looks so strange. The press service notes that this is a pilot project for the diocese. If such technology pays off in the future, it will be possible to build lighter and cheaper churches where “circumstances will require it”.

As it was reported earlier, a recent sociological study found that 67% of Ukrainians consider themselves as believers, but only 10% of them are members of religious communities. In addition, the number of non-believers increased by 5% during the year.
