CWN Editor's Note: By an act of the Latvian parliament, the Orthodox Church in Latvia has been separated from the Russian Orthodox Church.

“Rejecting any link with the Patriarch of Moscow is a crucial matter for our Orthodox community, the whole society of Latvia, and national security.” according to the legislation.

The Baltic nation of 1.9 million (map) is 37% Protestant, 23% Catholic, and 23% Orthodox.
