  5. Polls of the Razumkov Center do not reflect the number of real believers, but the sociology of sympathy, – speaker of the UOC

Polls of the Razumkov Center do not reflect the number of real believers, but the sociology of sympathy, – speaker of the UOC

There are many more believers in the UOC. And the supporters are in the OCU. There is a difference between believers and supporters, said Archpriest Nikolai Danilevich, Deputy Chairman of the Department for External Church Relations of the UOC, commenting on the publications on the results of the survey, which states that the number of believers of the OCU almost doubled the number of supporters of the UOC.

“The Razumkov Center provides a sociology of sympathies, not a sociology of real believers. And sympathy is formed by the media. The difference between those actually attending churches in the UOC and the OCU in the West of the country is at least 1 to 3 in favor of the UOC, in the Center 1 to 4, and in the South and East the gap is even greater.

This is also confirmed by the religious processions of the UOC and OCU, where the gap is already visible tenfold,” the clergyman wrote.

He added that in the opinion poll, for example, “there are almost no statistics about Protestants, and there are about 10 or 11 thousand communities of different directions combined in the country. That is, the total number of Protestant communities is almost the same as in one UOC. And this despite the fact that their communities are strong and numerous. And they are almost not displayed in the statistics.

“By the way, the Razumkov Center interviewed only 2,000 people by phone,” writes the speaker of the UOC.
