Last year was special in the life of RISU team: it has grown significantly - we have got 6 new correspondents. We made three field trips to various areas where acquainted with the religious heritage and the present. In Odessa and Chernivtsi we held roundtables. During two days in Transcarpathia we visited almost 20 churches and religious centers of various denominations. Three of our authors published a book dedicated to the Basilian monasteries in western Ukraine.
Today we would like to thank all of our authors, readers, and donors. We hope that RISU has long life in God's plans. And that our work will continue to benefit all denominations, and Ukraine in general.
