Sport and youth public organizations comprise a majority of citizens' associations registered by the Justice Ministry since early 2007, Cabinet’s press office informs.

Most frequently, the Ukrainians associated on the basis of sportsmanship. In regions, the newly established unions made up almost half of the all registered non-governmental organizations. This kind of public activity took the 2nd position on popularity nationwide.

Moreover, the Ukrainians actively associated on the basis of professional interests. The Ministry also registered a great number of women and children's organizations, veterans and invalids' associations, national and friendly ties' unions, environment, monuments and culture protection organizations, cultural-and-educational, scientific-and-technical, and creative unions.

The number of citizens' associations with the all-Ukrainian status was growing more dynamically year-over-year. In 2006, there were 211 NGOs registered in Ukraine, and there are 124 NGOs already registered for 6 month of this year.

At the same time, a political activity of Ukraine's population showed a considerable decline. For the first half year, Ukraine's Justice Ministry registered 4 parties, which is only a third out of parties recorded in 2006.
