The Trinity Church of the UOC in Rostoki was seized by supporters of the OCU in January 2019. The believers first prayed in the street, and then in the premises of a small trailer. In 2021, the CF "Favor" announced a fundraiser for the construction of a new church for the community affected by the raiding, and by the autumn the believers completed the main work on preparing the roof for covering.
