Названа самая многочисленная конфессия в Украине

More than just believers in the UOC-MP.

The largest denomination by number of believers in Ukraine is the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate (headed by Metropolitan Onufry). This follows from the results of a study conducted by the national Academy of Sciences of Ukraine on the religious preferences of Ukrainians.

UOC covers 2/5 of all believers (36% of those who identificeret themselves with the UOC-MP and 3.4 percent of believers identify themselves with the Russian Orthodox Church in the Crimea).

Second in the number of believers of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Kyiv Patriarchate (headed by Patriarch Filaret), covering a quarter of all believers, the third – Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church, covering a little more than a fifth of believers.

All other faiths account for a rather small portion of believers. Thus, the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church has less than 5% of believers, other denominations – less than 2%.
