CWN Editor's Note: As a May 27 meeting of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Moscow Patriarchate looms later this week, many Orthodox parishes are leaving that body to ally themselves with the independent Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Kiev Patriarchate.

One survey shows that since February, when the Russian invasion of Ukraine commenced, the number of Ukrainians allied with the Moscow patriarchate has dropped from 15% to 4% of the Orthodox community.
