Tetiana Kalenychenko, Denys Brylov
In this Transatlantic Policy Network on Religion and Diplomacy policy brief, authors Tetiana Kalenychenko and Denys Brylov analyze Ukraine’s religious context, the range of responses to the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 from across the spectrum of religious groups in the country, and the obstacles to and opportunities for Ukrainian religious contributions to peacebuilding. The report concludes with recommendations for how governments and civil society organizations in the international community can engage with Ukrainian religious and non-religious actors to foster a constructive response to the war.
