In the Primorsky district of St. Petersburg, they consecrated and opened for the parishioners a temple in honor of the Exaltation of the honest and life-giving cross of the Lord. Near the entrance to the temple is a high relief depicting the family of the President of the Etalon-LenSpetsSMU Group of Companies Vyacheslav Zarenkov, who sponsored the construction of the church.

A year earlier, Zarenkov acted as a patron of the construction of another temple, located in Cyprus near Nicosia. Instead of a high relief, there is an icon in it, which also depicts Zarenkov and his family, transmitting the church church.
