Photographer's Note

This church in the village of Nizhni Mlini (Lower Mills) near the city of Poltava is called Saint Georges church at Poltavas Eparchy of Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Kyiv Patriarchate), as a tablet at the gates reads. Another tablet says that there are also the Saint Georges brotherhood sodality for temperance and the sisterhood sodality in honor of reverend martyr Grand Duchess Elizabeth there.

The brick church was built on the place of an old wooden one in 1907. At the soviet times the church was used for non-religious purposes, for example as a movie theatre. The belfry was destroyed. Now it is under restoration.
