|Religious minorities, which have become common in the religious landscape of Ukraine, perform a rather decorative function, creating a picture of Ukraine’s multi-confessional society. Due to their numbers (over 100), the State and the society do not take the religious minorities into account, neglecting their resources and special needs. At the local level (oblast’, district) their interests are generally ignored.
The main idea of the Project is to present religious minorities to the Ukrainian society, to identify their urgent needs, to convey to the authorities the peculiarity of their interests, to include minorities in the social and spiritual structure of the society, to guarantee them real rights and freedoms that they can use. In the future, it may become mutually beneficial cooperation between the State and communities of the religious minorities, using their ties with mother countries to improve the international image of Ukraine.
