Almost 3 times more Ukrainians identify themselves as Kyiv Patriarchate than Moscow Patriarchate parishioners - poll

Nearly two-thirds of Ukrainians identify themselves as Orthodox believers and nearly half as parishioners of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyiv Patriarchate, as is seen from a public opinion poll conducted jointly by the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology (KIIS), the Razumkov Center, and the Socis Center for Social and Marketing Research.

The poll findings publicized at a press conference at the Interfax-Ukraine news agency in Kyiv on Friday show that 68.8% of the respondents identify themselves as Orthodox, 9.6% as Christians, 8.5% as Greek Catholics, 1.2% as Protestants, and 1% as Roman Catholics.

Another 9% said they do not profess any faith.

At the same time, 45.2% of all those polled said they associate themselves with the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyiv Patriarchate, 16.9% with the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate, and 2.1% with the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church.

Another 33.9% of the respondents said they do not associate themselves with any church, saying: "I am just an Orthodox."

The face-to-face poll of 10,005 respondents was conducted in the Ukrainian territories controlled by Kyiv on August 30 to September 9, 2018.
