Ukraine elected a new president this week and evangelical Christians are concerned that the winner will restrict religious freedom.
Voters elected Viktor Yanukovych over rival Yulia Tymoshenko. In 2004, Tymoshenko was part of the Orange Revolution that forced Yanukovych to step down after a rigged election.
However, Ukrainians became disillusioned with Orange Revolution leaders after years of mismanagement and corruption.
The vice-president of Russian Ministries told CBN News that evangelicals are praying the pro-Russian Yanukovych will not impose harsh religious restrictions similar to those in Russia.
Most Ukrainians belong to the Orthodox church, but evangelicals are very involved in social ministry in the country.
