Astronism in Ukraine refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Ukraine. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Ukraine, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Ukraine oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Ukraine is split into twenty-four oblasts and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Kiev.
This national branch of the Astronist Institution manages the official representation and depiction of Astronism throughout this territory, including efforts to protect the identity of the philosophy with the intention of further disseminating it throughout the territory.
It is the Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to the philosophy in this territory as any other organisations or institutions proclaiming such a role are deemed as unauthorised proprietors and are therefore considered as part of the anti-Institutionist movement.
Several terms are used to refer to the presence of Astronism in Ukraine including:
- Astro-Ukrainian philosophy
- Astro-Ukrainian religion
- Astro-Ukrainian spirituality
- Ukrainian astroncy
- Ukrainian Astronism
- Ukrainian astronomical religion
- Ukrainian Cosmism
- Ukrainian space religion
History of Astronism in Ukraine
As of December 2020, the Demographics of Astronism report claimed that 24,000 Astronists were living in Ukraine and the status of the religious freedoms for Astronists in the country has been designated as apathetic by the Astronist Institution.
Despite this, the Ukrainian government does not recognise Astronism as a religion in the country and neither have any Astronist materials been translated into the Ukrainian language by the end of 2020.
