President Viktor Yanukovych urges the church not to interfere in the electoral process, he said at the meeting with the leaders of churches and religious organizations.

"We have to agree with you that the church does not interfere in the political process, as it will work on a split of the society," Yanukovych stressed.

He added that he was aware of attempts to pressure on the clergy in order to gain its support at the elections.

The President stressed that it is important to hold free and transparent elections.

As a reminder, in September, the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church forbade its members of the clergy to campaign for any political force at the parliamentary elections.
