Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus

While the populations of these countries were historically Orthodox, the Communists destroyed 95% of the church buildings after they came to power in 1917, and then for 70 years indoctrinated each school child to believe that there is no God.  Today, there are large regions of these countries in which the population is completely unchurched.  In addition to REM's focus on reaching Muslims and ethnic groups that do not have believers among them, the ministry also supports full-time missionaries among Russians, Ukrainians, and Byelorussians in the areas without a single church in the vicinity.
