The absolute, overwhelming majority of Orthodox people in Ukraine belong to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Moscow Patriarchate.
According to the sociological research of the Razumkov Center, since 2014, after the annexation of Crimea and the beginning of the war in Donbas, the number of Ukrainian citizens who identify themselves with the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyiv Patriarchate, which is independent of Russia, has significantly exceeded the number of supporters of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church under the control of the Moscow Patriarchate, and the gap is widening.
