 REM supports missionaries in the following areas of the former Soviet Union:

- the predominantly Muslim republics in the Russian Caucasus

- Muslim Central Asian countries (e.g., Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, etc.)

- Buddhist areas of southern Siberia

- animist areas of Russia's Polar Siberia and the Far East 

- European Russia

- Belarus, Moldova and Ukraine

When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1989, Russia emerged as an independent nation.  Today, it is home to 142 million people and covers a territory of 6.5 million square miles (almost twice the size of the United States).  Russia remains the largest country in the world. 

At the same time, more than 160 different groups of indigenous people live on the Russian soil.  More than 20% of Russia’s total population belongs to one of these 160 different ethnic groups, most of whom practice paganism, Islam, or Buddhism.

While the ministry's primary focus is on reaching those ethnic groups that do not have a single Christian believer among them, the ministry also supports full-time missionaries among Russians, Ukrainians, and Byelorussians in the areas without a single church in the vicinity.

You can learn more information here about the ministry in Siberia, the Muslim regions of Central Asia and the Caucasus, and among the Slavic people in Russia and the Ukraine.
