Ukrainian Church Communities: The Role of the Greek Catholic Church in Society, Politics and Conflict

26 October 2017 - 10:00am to 11:30am

Chatham House, London


Sviatoslav Shevchuk, Patriarch, Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church



The Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church is the third largest denomination in Ukraine, with its parishes across the country covering around 12 per cent of believers. Since the Euromaidan Revolution, the Church has played an active role in Ukraine’s transformation and its community pursues various charitable purposes.  

At this roundtable, the patriarch of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, Sviatoslav Shevchuk, will discuss the role of the church in current developments in Ukraine, including relations with the parliament, the anti-corruption effort and support for Ukrainian soldiers during the conflict in the east. He will also touch upon the role of other churches in relation to these issues.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
