Does Ukraine have religious freedom?


Ukraine is a country where 85% of its citizens identify as Christian. Ukraine has a Jewish president who appointed a Muslim defense minister. Recently, a delegation of clergy from a dozen different religions came to the United States. 

The only places in Ukraine that lack religious freedom are the territories occupied by Russia. In those areas, Russian soldiers are systematically shutting down protestant churches and forcing believers underground to practice their religion.
