The provided infographics provides a general look at the religious landscape in Central and Eastern Europe. It’s interesting to note that exotic sects, new-age-style beliefs and other “neo-liberal” constructs especially actively challenge traditional religious systems in the states that had purportedly sold parts or all of its sovereignity to the Euro-Atlantic elites. This can be seen by especially high % of supporters of ‘other’ religions in states like Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Romania and Ukraine.
The case of Ukraine is also interesting because this predominantly-Orthodox country is now turned into a hotbed of various radicals, organized crime networks, sects and sectarian-style believes. The Kiev government and its Western backers are contributing efforts against the canonical Ukrainian Orthodox Church through various non-canonical entities.
