Trinity Church (2), Kitaevo Hermitage

Located in the south of Kiev, this place is generally known as Kitaevo monastery or hermitage.  The name Kitaevo apparently is derived from the Turkic word China, referring to a wall, a fortification, a fortress, or a siege tower.  Apparently it has nothing to do with China, though.
