The magnificent interior of the new Church of the Resurrection of Christ and the New Martyrs and Confessors of the Russian Church with the view of the cupola with frescoes of saints. On the dome of the church, we see images of saints of different countries and eras who, together with us, appear before God and participate in our prayers. Among the many saints are the holy Royal Martyrs (family of Nicholas II Romanov) at the top of the picture, and next to them is depicted the recently glorified in the faces of the saints, their personal doctor, the martyr Evgeny Botkin. The frescoes also depict those new martyrs whose descendants still live and remember the feat of their relatives. For example, the central fresco depicts two priests and a martyr from the Pravdolyubov family. Their grandchildren and great-grandchildren came to the consecration of the cathedral on May 25, 2017 and recognized their grandfathers.
