  • Oleg Vasyliovych Buchma


The democratic state and social development courses chosen by Ukraine have defined its religious diversity, where a prominent place in the spiritual life of society is the phenomenon of religious minorities, which play an ambiguously important role in forming a new system of value orientations. All these changes are taking place against the background of global transformations in the modern world, which is becoming increasingly open to interactions and interactions between its various elements, pluralistic and multicultural, in which different religious traditions freely coexist. At the same time, it shows discrimination against certain groups of people called minorities. Minorities are increasingly experiencing political, cultural, economic and physical oppression, and even genocide.
