  • The Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church (UAOC) has 1015 communities, of which more than 80 % function in eastern Ukraine. 

There are two Catholic Churches represented in Ukraine today:

  • The Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church (UGCC) has more than 3317 communities, the majority of which function in western Ukraine.
  • The Roman Catholic Church (RCC) has more than 807 communities, most of which function in the central regions.

The Armenian Apostolic Church represents the “pre-Chalcedonian” Churches in Ukraine.

 

Some believers belong to the Protestant Churches and Church communities of other religious denominations, in particular non-traditional and new religious movements. The amount of these communities and their faithful is dynamically growing.
