The law on the hierarchy of the religious organizations №2673-VIII comes into force.

According to the law, the state admits that a religious organization has a right to report to any existing religious centers in Ukraine and abroad. Besides, a religious organization has a right to change its subordination through registration of a new edition of the statute or amendments of this statute.

General assembly of the religious organization decides whether it changes subordination. The members of the organization can summon a meeting.

“No less than two-thirds of the members of the religious organization make a decision of change of subordination and amendments to the statute. This is required so that the assembly is considered plenipotentiary,” the law says.

The law was published on Golos yesterday, on January 30.

Earlier, on January 17 Ukraine’s Parliament adopted bill No.4128 on a possible change of subordination of a religious organization on a general meeting by two-thirds of votes of the present. 229 people’s deputies voted “for” in the second voting (first, there were 223 affirmative votes).
