Abstract

State-church relations in Ukraine are regulated by one of the best in Europe, the Law of Ukraine "On Freedom of Conscience and Religious Organizations". However, this law can not solve the problem of confrontation between the Moscow and Kiev Orthodox patriarchates in our country, as this confrontation has gone beyond the religious conflict and, in fact, is an external expression of ideological and civilizational choice (tolerance of values) of Orthodox believers.
