Russian culture, like any other, has undergone significant changes that transformed its values, but the church remains one of the visual attributes. However, the system of its integration into the surrounding landscape gradually fades away and is displaced by functionality. In the absence of a unified architectural style in the suburbs and, consequently, a complete visual chaos, we now have model temples often built out of the same standard materials as the surrounding apartment buildings. There are attempts to fit new churches into the landscape, to bring completeness to the topos. But whereas before churches stood out with their architecture and towered above the surrounding landscape, now they are buried and lost in the forest of high-rise buildings. In Moscow, for example, there is a so-called "Program-200", which aims to build more than 200 temples. The plan did not consider the special role of the church and new landscape absorbs it. It loses its identity and is no longer perceived as something sublime. A church, instead of being a channel for self-identification with topos/culture, becomes a blind spot, an invisible element, excluded from the system of identity formation.
