Church of Saint Nicholas the Miracle Worker

This church was built between 1741-1759, and had some reconstruction done in 1890. In the early 1930s the church was closed for worship, and didn't reopen until 1992. The original icon was transferred to the Tretyakov Gallery in 1933, and I'm not sure if it's still there now, or if it was returned to the church when it reopened?
