Russia - The church of Archangel Michael in Merkushino

I received this card in the World Languages RR, written in Ukrainian :) As this church is located in a small village, there's no much information about it on the internet. I just read that the Orthodox saint Simeon Verkhoturskiy lived in this village in 16th century.
The Merkushino village is located in the Sverdlovsk (Ekaterinburg) region, in the Ural mountains.
