Kyiv – Ukraine is now going through a religious renaissance. So said Mykola Novychenko, assistant head of Ukraine’s State Committee on Matters of Nationalities and Religions, at a press conference on 21 May 2007.
According to Novychenko, the large number of registered religious communities only proves that Ukraine is experiencing a real religious revival. All in all, there are over 33,000 of them in Ukraine, he said.
In addition, Tetiana Pylypenko, director of the Department on Matters of Nationalities and Information, informed journalists that no religious organization of a destructive character has been registered in Ukraine.
