Abstract

Religious network of Ukraine has never been monoconfessional. Attempt of Prince Vladimir in the IX century to create a single pantheon of gods for the whole of Rus-Ukraine eventually remained unrealized. By introducing Christianity by state means, the ruler of Russia further complicated the picture of religious life, even though he sought to overcome polyconfessionalism in this way. In the end, he gave birth to official orthodoxy and two-sidedness, that is, the Orthodox paganism and pagan Christianity
