A poll conducted by Ukrainian Sociology Service found that 67 percent of Ukrainians call themselves believers. The largest group of believers (39.4 percent) belong to the UPTs/MP. The self-proclaimed (uncanonical) Kiev Patriarchate had 25.3 percent, the Ukrainian Greek Catholics had 21.3 percent, and the uncanonical Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church had 4.6 percent. In addition, the Ukraine has 1.9 percent Muslims, 1.3 percent Pentecostals, 1.2 percent Baptists, 0.6 percent Roman Catholics, and 0.2 percent Jews. Over the past 13 years, the number of religious believers in the Ukraine significantly increased (50 percent in 2003 to 67 percent in 2016).

Both the Uniates and so-called “Kiev Patriarchate” showed gains against the UPTs/MP, but as virtually all of these “gains” came about as the result of armed seizures by nationalist thugs since the American-fomented coup in 2014, the above figures are notional, to say the least. That is, the bulk of believers are still faithful to the canonical UPTs/MP… the Uniates and uncanonical schismatics will have a major deflation after the fall of the present pro-American fascist junta. May that day come soon, to cut short the suffering of the ordinary people (note well that the suffering doesn’t move the “Ukrainian” diaspora, nor does it move their political sugar-daddies such as McCain, Bolton, and Clinton… evil, isn’t it?).
