Introduction / History

The Turks in Ukraine are mainly Meskhetian Turks and those from Turkey who have emigrated. They speak mainly in Turkish.

The Meskhetian Turks came firstly at the end of World War II due to problems with Russia. They were made to leave Georgia in the then Soviet Union and go to Uzbekistan. Riots took place in Uzbekistan in 1989 and they came to live in Ukraine. They live mainly in Kherson and Donetsk.

In recent times there have been more and more Turks coming from Turkey to live in Ukraine.

The Meskhetian Turks are mainly Sunni Islam but do not follow Islam strictly largely because of the Russian leaders being against religion and following atheism. There is a mosque in Ukraine in Mariupol where the Turks worship.

The Simferepol International School in the Crimea teaches Turkish, English, French and Crimean languages. This school has achieved good successes. There is also another Turkish school called the Meridian International School which is in Kiev.


Prayer Points

* Pray that past and present troubles in the Ukraine will help lead the Turks here to salvation.
* Pray that missionaries will find the Turks here and give them the gospel message.
* Pray that Turks will have dreams and visions leading them to Jesus Christ.
