But I'll check with my architect acquaintances (including a couple working in France).

The church Assumption of Mary on the shore of Mavrovo lake, Macedonia. Built in 2014, in a Russian traditional style that is very uncommon for the Macedonian Orthodox Christian churches.

Another wooden church in Russian style, as a part of the Monastery St. John (Jovan) Bigorski in Macedonia. Also built in 2014. The dude with the blue shirt is the Prime-minister of Republic of Macedonia.
